Kennewick Thrift Store To Close After Receiving Eviction Papers On Vets Day
One of Kennewick’s beloved thrift stores is closing its doors after it was served eviction papers on Veteran’s Day.
According to our news partner KNDU, eviction papers were delivered on Veteran’s Day to a business that celebrates veterans.
Veterans Warehouse Thrift opened up in April 2021 and made it their mission to give back to the community and especially to veterans.
Thad Lawson Jr. is the owner and he says his commitment to the community and veterans still exists even after the setback of this closure.
According to the article, the store owes about $600,000 to the property owners and so the store will have to liquidate all of its stock to hit its Sunday deadline of being out if the building.
Lawson is asking the community to help liquidate over 40,000 square feet of inventory.
Lawson says prices are drastically reduced to clear inventory over the next few days and your absolute best time to shop the store is this weekend.
