Remarkables Resale Store, in downtown Tahlequah, has recently undergone a major renovation. The store, operated by the volunteers of Northeastern Health System, is now a beautiful mixture of new construction and historic features.
“The tin ceiling, which had been painted numerous times throughout the years, was crumbling,” said Pamela Coonce, Remarkables manager. “It has now been restored and is a great feature of the store.”
The three-month renovation is almost complete and the volunteers look forward to hosting a grand opening.
“We are still accepting donations,” said Coonce. “They can be dropped off at Remarkables and we will pick them up daily. We accept clothes and house wears and look forward to opening the store with some very nice things.”
All proceeds made from the sale of donated items are used to benefit Northeastern Health System, it’s staff and patients. The Auxiliary currently pays for medications and transportation for patients who need help, as well as provides scholarships to employees and equipment for the hospital.
“We do this work because we know how important it is to offer quality healthcare to our rural city,” said Coonce. “Northeastern Health System has expanded so much that there is hardly any need to travel to a big city to get care.”
Donations may be dropped off anytime at the back door of Remarkables, located at 114 S. Muskogee Ave., Tahlequah.
