X*ACT Thrift Store Closing to Make Way for Arts Center

As 2012 winds down, the Xenia Area Community Theater is making a big move toward fulfilling their long term Arts Mission. For the past few years they have been relying on income from their Second Act Thrift Store to help cover their operating expenses. As they continue to grow, the thrift store revenue has been replaced by growing audiences, memberships and sponsorships. Accordingly, they are transitioning away from the thrift store in favor of what the Transition Team is calling the Xenia Arts Center.

According to X*ACT President Alan King, “The vision we have of the Xenia Arts Center is a creative arts cooperative where local artists, artisans, and fine crafters can display and sell their works.” X*ACT envisions art classes and art related activities as well. Starting immediately, they are actively recruiting local artists to help plan and execute this change. They plan to begin renovations at the New Year and to open the new Arts Center in early 2013.

So now they are faced with clearing out their huge inventory of quality donated items to make way for the artists.

Today they are announcing a big 50% OFF CLEARANCE SALE at the Second Act Thrift Store. They have a large selection of Holiday Decorations, Gifts and Stocking Stuffers, Children’s and Adult’s Clothing, Vintage Furniture, Books, and Household Items.

Everything must go. The 50% OFF CLEARANCE SALE will continue through November or until all of their inventory is gone. Stop in soon to get the best selection of gently used and vintage items. Your purchases will help to fund the building improvements necessary to open the Xenia Arts Center this spring. No reasonable offers will be refused. If you have good second hand items to donate to X*ACT for this sale, please drop them off before Friday, Nov. 16.

Former President Cheryl Dern says, “We’re excited about the future and you can be part of it.” Xenia Area Community Theater and the Second Act Thrift Store are located in hospitable downtown Xenia at 45 E. Second St. Special Clearance Sale hours are Mon – Thurs from 9 AM to 3 PM, Fri from 12 to 6 PM and Saturdays from 10 AM to 2 PM.
