The thrift shop, which has operated in downtown Portland for more than 20 years to raise money for Catherine McAuley High School scholarships and support other local charities, will close March 19. School officials say that rising rent and... This is a part of the community that’s been there forever,” said Gary Savage, a part-time thrift shop employee. “It serves part of the community that no one else wants to service in downtown Portland. Kathryn Barr, head of school at McAuley, said the thrift shop was founded about 23 years ago to raise scholarship funds for McAuley students. She attributed the decision to close the store to increases in rent and other operating costs over the past 2½ years that required the school to subsidize the store. “The time has come for us to say goodbye to a wonderful organization that is no longer able to fill its purpose of getting our girls tuition money they need,” Barr said. The decision to close the store comes at a time of transition for the private Portland high school, which had been affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church since it was founded by the Sisters of Mercy in 1969. The school announced in October that... Barr said employees and volunteers at Good Cause Thrift Shop were too upset to speak to a reporter, but volunteers and employees said they were told not to speak to the media about the store closing. A Facebook page for the thrift store has been removed. Savage, the part-time employee, said he decided to speak out about the closure because of the impact it will have on the community and the roughly 10 employees who will lose their jobs. Savage said he has a great amount of respect for the shop’s employees and volunteers because of the way they interact with customers. There have been times he’s seen them give a hat or gloves to someone who needed them but couldn’t afford to pay. The people who work there are wonderful,” Savage said. When news of the impending closure started to trickle out two weeks ago, residents of the apartments above the thrift shop circulated a petition asking McAuley to reconsider its decision. Savage said he was told around 700 people signed it. A group of employees is also trying to save the store by raising money to keep it going. Source: www.pressherald.com
