DIBS! GRAND OPENING: WMCS Prayer Blessing & Ribbon Cutting Event on Jan 17th at noon

DIBS! On Resale” Moved to 1279 E Apple Ave

The first time I walked into our new building I couldn’t even see the walls. The building was being used as an office furniture sales and storage building.  It was wall to wall, floor to ceiling office furniture!  Once that was all removed we could see the potential.  The first thing we needed was a new fire suppression system.  Next, we brought in shelving to divide the working rooms from the showroom, build two dressing rooms and hooked up the speaker system.

Finally. It’s moving day, or maybe I should say moving weeks.   We had many volunteers come in to help pack up the Harvey St store and move everything to the Apple Ave. store.  The whole time we kept both stores open for business.  I was most impressed with the amount of stuff the little yellow delivery truck holds! And with the enclosed trailer that came to move all the racks of clothing!

I feel truly blessed with so many volunteers who came to support this major undertaking!  We have been welcomed into a neighborhood with new customers and familiar faces.  Everyone is so excited and grateful for a store like ours to open in their neighborhood. And I am really glad the snow held off while all this was happening!

I am very excited to share with you the NEW DIBS! On Resale.

She carefully looks over every book that is put on the shelf to be sure each is in good shape and is not musty or written in. Then she prices and displays them according to topic.

Bibles, Childrens books and more.

We carry children’s books, inspirational books, best sellers and most everything in between.  There is a nice selection of cookbooks as well.  In the music section you will find song books for Piano and organ and a variety of instruction books for piano, band instruments and guitar.
