Riverside Hospice on the Eastern Shore operates three thrift stores located in Oak Hall, Onancock and Exmore. These three stores were acquired in 2016 when Riverside purchased Hospice and Palliative Care of the Eastern Shore.
When these stores were acquired, their intent was to help provide additional funding for hospice services. Regretfully, the thrift stores have not been able to produce sustainable proceeds, and therefore have not been able to support hospice services as they were intended. Riverside has been in contact with other local and regional charities and thrift store operators, however none of them have expressed interest in acquiring these stores. Because of this, Riverside has made the difficult decision to close all three thrift store locations.
The additional funding needs for hospice services will now be requested through our Riverside Foundation.
Starting November 14th all items in the stores will be marked 50% off.
The last day of operations will be Tuesday Nov. 28. All items remaining will be donated to other local and regional thrift stores.
