BY SOUTHGREY.CA STAFF — The Cat's Meow, a thrift shop in Meaford which raises funds for the Grey Bruce Animal Shelter, will reopen on Saturday, July 4. The shop was recently transferred to the Grey Bruce Animal Shelter after the closing of the Blue Mountain Animal Shelter. However, due to COVID 19, the shop has been closed ever since. But organizers are excited to announce the reopening with new hours Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10 am until 2 pm.

The shop is full of high quality lightly used items at amazing prices. The store has everything from entertainment items such as books, games, CDs and DVDs, to household items and jewelry. The store will be staffed and organized by a group of dedicated volunteers. All proceeds from sales will go directly to the Grey Bruce Animal Shelter to support efforts to find new homes for displaced dogs and cats.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
