The brand new St. Vincent de Paul Society Shoppe officially open its doors on Windsor’s west end Saturday.

The society purchased the former Blessed Sacrament Church at 3714 King Street for just $1 from the Roman Catholic Diocese of London, and construction began the first of April.

The opening of the store marks the completion of phase I of the Society’s plan for west Windsor. When resources allow, an adult drop-in centre and expanded food hub will be completed.

“The entire project is a boon to the residents of the area,” said Pam Baksi. “The opening of the Society Shoppe on King Street is a tremendous benefit to the population of west Windsor in need of affordable, good quality household goods and clothing.”

Bishop Ronald Fabbro was also on hand to bless the new resale store, distribution centre and warehouse facility.
