Vandalism Delays Hospice Store Opening
(Mount Airy, NC) A grand opening ceremony for the Mountain Valley Hospice Re-Sale Shoppe, which was scheduled for this morning, has been delayed due to a break-in which occurred last night.
"We are still trying to determine the stolen items, but damage to our store and displays is extensive," said Sheila Jones, Director of Marketing for Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care. "It's so sad that someone chose to vandalize a store whose sales go to support a mission of care for terminally-ill patients."
According to Ms. Jones, the Re-Sale Shoppe will remain open but is now a cleanup in process.
The grand opening ceremony will be re-scheduled as soon as possible.
Anyone with information about the break-in should contact the Mount Airy Police at 336-786-3535.
