PLEASE NOTE: ON JANUARY 24 THE BUILDING WHERE PENNYWISE IS LOCATED EXPERIENCED AN ELECTRICAL FIRE.

The shop will be closed until repairs can be made. Please check back in the future for updated status.

Around noon on Thursday, January 24 a tree fell bringing down electrical wires and causing a transformer to blow, which in turn caused a fire at the rear of Pennywise Thrift Shop. Everybody working in the shop got out safely. Fire crews arrived within a few minutes and quickly gained access by breaking down the side doors. There was a few inches of water in the basement but otherwise the store is not damaged. Several other fire trucks, ambulances, and police arrived along with many more firefighters.The building was throughly checked for other possible fire sources that may have spread through the insulation.
