Neat Repeats Thrift Store
Freedom’s Rest family crisis center moved its Neat Repeats Thrift Store on Nov. 15 to 1944 W. Retail Lane in Ozark. The 5,000-square-foot unit next to Wal-Mart Supercenter in Ozark Centre is five times larger than the previous shop in Collins Point shopping center, said Executive Director Matthew Ennis. The nonprofit collects donated clothing, shoes, jewelry, books, household items, sporting goods, furniture and other items for resale to benefit those seeking shelter from family violence. Freedom’s Rest operates a 16-room shelter at an undisclosed site in Christian County, said Ennis. While about half of its clients come from Greene County, he said the center serves 11 southwest Missouri counties. In addition, the store issues clothing and supplies for the adults and children who stay at Freedom’s Rest, so donations of hygiene and laundry products, food, household items, children’s books and toys also are accepted.
Hours: 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Saturday
