Broken Water Pipe Closes Beaver County Humane Society’s Thrift Store in Beaver Falls

(Beaver Falls, Pa.) Beaver County Humane Society’s Thrift Store, which is located at 1900 7th Avenue in Beaver Falls, PA is currently closed due to a broken water pipe that was discovered by the manager early Monday morning.

Upon the discovery water had already brought down ceiling tile and flooded the shopping floor of the store according to a press release.

Executive Director Susan Salyards said in the  release that “The manager jumped into action to stop the water and save merchandise from damage, but it is going to take a long time to clean up. We are unsure at this point about the extent of the damage and how long our thrift store will need to be closed,” Salyards said  “We hope to be back up and running quickly as the Thrift Store is our largest fundraising initiative for the Beaver County Humane Society animal shelter in Center Township. We also are an important business that many in our community depend on and want to be back operating soon for their sake.”

The staff are still trying to determine the extent of the damage and salvage as much as possible. No shoppers were in the building at the time. BCHS is working to get things back in order so that business can resume.
