Poke & Peek Will Close to Prepare for Cold Weather, Halloween

Members of the Humboldt Hospital Auxiliary will see a flurry of activity this week as they prepare the Poke & Peek Thrift Shop for the coming cold months.

The shop, located at 3200 Bengochea Circle in Sage Heights, will put away all spring and summer goods to make room for its entire inventory of fall and winter merchandise.

The shop will close on Wednesday, September 24, to allow members ample time to complete the switchover.

The store will open once again to the public from noon to 4 p.m. Friday, September 26, and from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, September 27.

The Poke will have everything people need to stay warm during the colder months, including great buys on jackets and coats.

Plus, all Halloween decorations will be available for sale, too, along with Halloween costumes in sizes from infant to adult.

The Poke & Peek is the sole source of income for the Humboldt Hospital Auxiliary, an all-volunteer organization distinguished by members' pink coats.

The Poke & Peek Thrift Shop's regular hours are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdays and from noon to 4 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Donations are gladly accepted during the store's hours of operation; receipts are provided upon request.

A donation drop box is also located to the west of the store entrance for after-hours donations.
