Missouri Council of the Blind New Image Thrift Store
Missouri Council of the Blind relocated its New Image Thrift Store on Dec. 8 to 2713 N. Kansas Expressway in Town and Country Shopping Center. The store had previously operated at 1445 W. Kearney St. The new store occupies roughly 18,000 square feet of space leased from Jared Enterprises, and assistant manager Jeff Ries said the store has 11 employees. He said the move to the Town and Country Shopping Center came as a result of the store separating from J.A.C.K.S. Management Co. Inc., which previously managed the store’s finances. Relying on donations that are resold, the store raises money to provide services for blind and visually impaired individuals statewide. Merchandise includes furniture, clothing and household goods, and Ries said that in January, the store raised roughly $27,000, which also covers the store’s expenses. A grand opening celebration is scheduled for Feb. 29. Hours: 9 a.m.–6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m.–6 p.m. Saturday. Phone: (417) 831-7601. Web:
