Penny's Place goes online
By Chad Ingram
Penny’s Place, the consignment shop dealing mostly in children’s clothing that opened on Minden’s main drag during the winter, no longer has a storefront along Bobcaygeon Road amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but it is still in business.
“We are no longer on our beautiful main
street,” owner Alexandra Harrison told the Times in an email. “We have
made the hard decision to move Penny’s Place home. We are located on
Deep Bay Road outside Minden, about a 10 minutes’ drive. We plan on
having a storefront here in coming months. When we feel it is safe to do
so, we will open to the public.”
In the meantime, customers can check on pennys.place.minden on Facebook, or @pennysplace on Instagram, and Harrison is doing doorstep drop-offs of clothing.
“I understand the inconvenience,” Harrison wrote. “As a mom of three I understand that I am taking the convenience of shopping local for affordable children’s clothes away. Because of this, I am offering drop-offs right to your door. One day a week you can expect drop-offs to Minden, Haliburton and surrounding areas. Busier weeks will be split into two delivery days. I hope that everyone is finding their new normal incorporating balance and peace.”
Harrison can also be reached at 519-820-0552.
