Chamber of Commerce Events

Ribbon Cutting/Grand Opening -The Exchange at Our Village invites you to come to our Grand Opening on Friday, June 10th at Noon.  We are located at 202 NE 2nd St. Suite 7. The Exchange is directly across the street from Our Village, between My Aunt’s Closet and Rite Life. 

The Exchange offer customers the chance to shop for gifts and household items by selecting items and leaving a donation. For our clients, this is more than just a “store”, it is an opportunity to rebuild their lives with common household items we all take for granted. Clients are able to leave a donation or put in some “sweat equity” at Our Village in order to exchange their work for goods. 

The Exchange will be open Monday – Friday from 9:00am – 5:00pm, and Saturday from 10:00am – 2:00pm. This Exchange makes it possible for us to provide services to our community, and your support is critical. We accept donations of household items and gifts, but they must be clean, not broken, and ready to go on the sales floor. Please call to schedule a drop off  or ask questions at 863-532-2527. 

Mark your calendars to attend this Grand Opening/Ribbon Cutting at Noon on Friday, June 10th and let’s help them celebrate.  Don’t miss out on the photo opportunity with the ribbon cutting at noon.

All of our events are open to the public.
