Guess who’s expecting?!? We are!

Common Threads welcomes a second store this summer in Brook Park!

BHITC is thrilled to share news that a second Common Threads is coming your way in Brook Park at Brookgate Shopping Center in just a few short months!

“Our generous donors helped us open our first store in Fairview Park in 2016. God has shown it so much favor that we’re opening this new location as a means of creating yet more employment and net profits for Building Hope in the City’s mission,” says BHITC Executive Director, Brian Upton.  The store is slated to open this summer.

Social Enterprise Director, Jeff Stredney, says Brookgate Shopping Center was selected to serve shoppers and donors who live south of the city.  “Our second store will have easy access to Interstates 71 and 480 and be located alongside several other large discount retail neighbors.”

The new store will be roughly the same size as Common Threads’ Fairview Park location and offer all the same “Daily Deal” discounts and promotions those shoppers in Fairview Park have come to love. “Now, our customers and friends will have two great locations and twice as much merchandise from which to choose,” says Stredney.

Stay tuned for grand opening news of Common Threads-Brook Park in the months ahead.  Keep tabs of the new store’s progress toward opening on Facebook and Instagram.
