St. Vincent store’s grand opening Aug. 26

PORT ORCHARD — With permitting snafus behind them, the crew at St. Vincent de Paul’s new building on Bethel Avenue has set Saturday, Aug. 26 as the thrift shop’s grand opening date.

Sean Jeu, St. Vincent’s Port Orchard general manager, said grand-opening activities will run from 1-4 p.m. The store will open at 9:30 a.m. and welcome visitors until 6 p.m.

The store has been open at its new building since July. It previously was in a building next door to Port Orchard Ford on Bay Street. The Ford dealership owned by the Bruce Titus family purchased the land and a small shopping strip there so it can expand its operations and rebuild its showroom and offices.
