As the local economy continues to fight its way out of a recession, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul’s Council of Los Angeles wants to make Christmas a little brighter for local children, women and men.
The Society will offer its third annual “Black Friday” Christmas Extravaganza from 8:30am to 6:30pm on Friday, Nov. 26 at its three thrift store locations in Long Beach, Los Angeles and Oxnard. Shoppers will not only save money on Christmas gifts, but the store revenue will help the Society’s charitable services for families and individuals who will have very little this holiday season.
The Black Friday sale at each St. Vincent de Paul store will include 50-percent storewide savings on clothing, home décor, and more (some exclusions apply).
“There are so many people who are still struggling to make ends meet. Our goal is to make it easier for them during Christmas,” said Tony Terrazas, store director for the Society’s LA Council, which serves the counties of LA, Ventura and Santa Barbara. “Besides lowering prices on our already low-priced items, proceeds from this sale also benefits our charitable programs for thousands of people who are seeking St. Vincent de Paul’s help this Christmas.”
The local Society of St. Vincent de Paul store can be found at 2750 Pacific Coast Highway.
