Penny Pinchers will reopen in June

May 06, 2017

To the Editor:

The First Congregational Church of Marion has been undergoing major renovations in its Community Center after a massive water leak. This damage and on-going construction work has forced the closing of the Penny Pinchers Exchange. We apologize to the faithful consignees and shoppers at the exchange that have been so supportive of the consignment operation for a span of more than forty years.

During this closing and an extensive cleaning has been undertaken and we hope that you will welcome the reopening of Penny Pinchers Exchange sometime in early June. In this downtime, if you have any questions, consignments left in the exchange, or consignment checks to be picked up, please contact the church office at 508-748-1053. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Dear Mr. Pierce and the people of the First Congregational Church of Marion...this is not what I have heard about the issue with Penny Pinchers. If it was simply due to the damage and ongoing construction, why are lawyers involved? Why have the workers, who are volunteers, locked out of the space? Unable to get at the consignees items? They have paid their rent, have been excellent tenants and very generous with their money?

....what is the real truth going on here?

..I heard Mr. Pierce threatened to call the Police on church members , a few weeks ago, who tried to come to Church to discuss the Penny Pinchers issues...since the church has changed the locks and not given them a key to get in..
