The Noah’s Ark Annual Bag Day event is coming up Friday, August 10, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Customers may buy marked bags in the parking lot for $4 each, fill them with store goods, and walk away with as many items as the bags will carry. Customers are free to purchase as many $4 bags as they wish for the Bag Day sale.
Any items that don’t fit in the bag are 80 percent off the regular price. Deep price reductions are also available in the days during August leading up to Bag Day. Bag Day marks the end of summer season for the Ark, which, after August 10, is closed for cleaning and repair.
Operated by the Women of St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church for more than 50 years, Noah’s Ark offers for sale, at bargain prices, merchandise of all kinds, including women’s and men’s clothing, children’s clothes, bedding, kitchen electronics and housewares, furniture and home furnishings, and a varied selection of books—including excellent vacation reading—in its own special book station, “Barnes & Noah.” Proceeds from Noah’s Ark sales, coupled with monies from the parish’s annual budget, go to more than twenty-five local, regional and global charities and agencies.
On October 2, Noah’s Ark reopens for business, Tuesdays and Fridays, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. In November, the winter season’s full schedule resumes, weekdays and the first Saturday of each month, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
