JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – A happy group of shoppers and officials attended the grand re-opening of the Hope Store, a nonprofit thrift store at 9850 Nesbit Ferry Road, on Saturday, Oct. 5. Johns Creek Mayor Mike Bodker was on hand for the ribbon-cutting ceremony, as was Tom Saltino, the director of stewardship for the Murphy Harpst Children's Home.

Bodker welcomed the Hope Store on behalf of the entire City Council and wished it great success because "your success will mean success for so many others. One of the great things about the Hope Store…is it's a great way to further help our community."

"We have a new look, a new attitude and new leadership," said Randy Thompson, new Hope Store board member. "We've put a lot of hard work into this. If you have any suggestions, please let us know."

The store accepts donations of new and gently used clothing, furniture and other household goods. The items are sold at budget-friendly prices.

The store operates with only three paid employees, Karen Borland, the store manager, Elizabeth Bloom, the warehouse manager, and sales associate Shannon Cartella. The Hope Store depends on volunteers and community service to help with the daily operations.

The mission of the Hope Store is to help children and those in need, and it partners with Murphy Harpst to accomplish this. A mission of the United Methodist Church, Murphy Harpst is an independent nonprofit residential treatment center committed to meeting the needs of families and neglected and abused children up to 18 years of age.

Emory Murphy (no connection with Murphy Harpst), the new owner and chief executive officer of the Hope Store, has been involved with Hope Store since its inception and is pleased to be able to continue their long-standing tradition of supporting Murphy Harpst.
