A few words from Betty Merrill:
“As many of you know I am the new manager at The Highland Thrift Shop. I have found it quite interesting to learn about the history and the individuals who have made the store successful as it is today.   So, I would like to share some of that information with you (the customer).
The Highland Thrift Shop opened on June 8, 1987.  The first deposit to the banks was for $25.26.  The store relocated to a front room in the Casselman Ventures building on October 8, 1987.  The store moved again to its current location (in the old school gymnasium) January of 2009. 
The Highland Thrift Store is run by a board. The board
members decide on all the  financial and business practices
associated with the store.
The current board members are:
Arthur Green: Chairman/2000

Kathy Overholt: Treasurer/2012
Regina Holliday: Member/2013

Betty Merrill: Manager/2016
Joyce Schrock: Assistant Mgr/2012

October News

Highland Thrift Shop is delighted to welcome Kay Theriot as a member of our volunteer team.

Kay's enthusiasm for the job and the friendliness she shows to customers are greatly appreciated. "I like being able to help people and be of service to our community," she said recently. Kay is a third generation Grantsville citizen, "born and raised." How good does it get? She has three sons and is married to her husband Jody.  In her spare time Kay likes to read and she likes music.  She sings in the Church choir.  Her special passion in life has been her work with her family day care, a licensed day care center in her home.  Kay, we are glad that Joyce Schrok invited you to join us, and we are doubly glad you accepted.

Christy Kinsinger and Joyce Schrock want to thank all of the shop's volunteers for their help in transforming our appearance: moving racks, rearranging and arranging donations and keeping everything nice and clean.  Thank you very much to each and every volunteer!!!
