BREWER — While a lot of business owners are suffering, some are brave enough to open their doors during the pandemic.
“She’s been dreaming of this for a very long time and it’s exciting to see her dream come true,” said Oliver, who is the son of Win Win owner Jen Nason.
Oliver isn’t the only one who is excited about the grand opening of his mother’s thrift store in Brewer.
Jen Nason, the owner of Win Win, was accompanied by her family as the doors opened.
She said there is an incentive for everyone involved, including those who donate.
“You can choose from a list of local charities that I have chosen, and your donation will be coded and when someone purchases that item, 10 percent of that sale will be donated to that charity,” Nason said.
Riley Curtis is an environmental sciences major and shares her aunt’s passion.
“On the sign it says donate shop repeat, that’s keeping it all in the loop. So when you are done with it you can give it back here. You can also come back and there are new things here everyday, and with the charity you are giving back to the community as well,” said Curtis.
Nason said she’s concerned at how wasteful our society has become and her passion to help wouldn’t be stopped even by COVID-19.
“Am I crazy? Am I crazy for doing this? But I feel like there’s a need for it, and I’m so passionate about it,” said Nason. “We’ll see if I’m crazy or not.”
