As the Almonte Community Co-ordinators launches into its 40th year of operation, the Hub’s furniture store, Rebound, opens in its new location at 14 Industrial Ave. In operation only eight years the store has twice outgrown its premises, and is now happy to be in a new facility closer to its customer base.
The store sells used furniture, household décor, small appliances, and electronics, all the accoutrements to make a house a home. The friendly staff is good at coordinating various items to make a pleasing display. Thanks to the generosity of donors who choose to have their electronics sold rather than simply go to e-waste, there is a good selection of computers, speakers, and other electronic gear.
While at their old location, Rebound was working in collaboration with the Town to operate a provincially sanctioned e-waste site, and hopes to continue this service again in the spring. For the time being, they will accept electronics except for TV’s for recycling, ensuring they go to the appropriate recycling centre.
Rebound accepts donations of good used furniture, small appliances and electronics on a daily basis by appointment during store hours. Please call ahead at (613)256-1700 to ensure receivers are there to assist in unloading. The store’s hours are Monday 1-4 p.m.; Tuesday to Saturday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., and Thursday evening till 8 p.m.
Watch for the grand opening on February 1 when the store will feature specials and surprises. In the meantime, check out their stock through the Hub’s website link: www.thehubalmonte.com . and be sure to visit Rebound in its new location for bargains and the best in used furniture.
