Urge To Purge’s core business is engineered around decluttering client’s homes and helping them reclaim their space. This week, UTP added a new facet to their business with the grand opening of their storefront. Located at 144A Thorold Road in Welland (the old Mary Luska Building), the retail location will be open on Fridays from 9 am – 1 pm to sell everything from housewares, pictures, furniture, cleaning products, decorative pieces, holiday décor, children’s toys and much more. The store will be staffed by Community Living Welland-Pelham individuals in an effort to give back to the community in a unique and much needed way.
