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
Bev Spiker: Secretary/2015
Kathy Overholt: Treasurer/2012
Regina Holliday: Member/2013
Diana Detrick: Member/2016
Betty Merrill: Manager/2016
Joyce Schrock: Assistant Mgr/2012
