ENGLEWOOD, Fla. – Suncoast Humane Society, a regional nonprofit humane society in operation since 1971, is expanding its thrift store at Palm Plaza, a premier shopping destination owned by GK Development Inc.
Construction is slated to begin in August 2019 on the store renovation and scheduled for completion in fall 2019. The shop will grow from its current 7,500-square-foot space to approximately 12,000 square feet.
Situated between Reid’s Nutrition Center and Winn-Dixie Supermarket, the thrift store features all sorts of unique treasures, one-of-a-kind knickknacks, furniture, books, art, small appliances and several other items at bargain prices. All sale proceeds support the nonprofit’s services, programs and its animals.
“We are very excited for the opportunity to expand our Englewood thrift store location,” said Phillip Snyder, executive director of Suncoast Humane Society. “This will afford us the opportunity to receive more quality items from our donors and increase sales, which benefit the programs, services and homeless animals of Suncoast Humane Society.”
Suncoast Humane Society is one of Florida’s few “open admissions” animal care facilities, where no animal in need is ever turned away – regardless of health, temperament, breed, age or size. Each year, the organization helps more than 50,000 animals and people through its programs and services. Suncoast Humane Society reaches over 450 square miles and 11 communities, including Charlotte and Sarasota Counties, Boca Grande and beyond.
The 104,562-square-foot Palm Plaza is located at the busy intersection of Placida Road and McCall Road at 1951 S. McCall Road in Englewood. The shopping center boasts a robust mix of retailers, including Beef O’Brady’s, Country Hound, Dollar Tree, J Nail Spa, Pet Supermarket, Reid’s Nutrition Center, Subway, Suncoast Humane Society Thrift Store, T-Mobile and Winn-Dixie Supermarket.
