Grand Opening

Grand Opening

Mark your calendars and save the date, Camp Venture and Just-A-Buck are cutting the ribbon on the area’s premier dollar store on Monday July 13, 2015 at 10AM.

Opening the doors on quality and value, this store will feature not only the most amazing one dollar items around, but a band of extraordinary coworkers, some with. and others without, disabilities. It’s all made possible by a partnership between an area not-for-profit and the nation’s number one dollar store retailer along with a little help from a very forward-thinking leader in state government.

On hand for this maiden voyage will be Senator David Carlucci whose support for grant funding to Camp Venture was timely and will make possible a chance at real-world employment for some of the staff who will be former participants of Camp Venture’s shelter workshop.

“More than 30 years ago, our principal founder, Kathy Lukens, had a vision for a community store to employ people with developmental disabilities,” explains agency director,” Dan Lukens. “What we did not have then was a partner in business or the support for government to make this happen. This is a long time coming and I am sure Kathy would have been proud.”

The store is open 7 days a week and is located in the same shopping center with Shoprite, CVS and Dunkin Donuts just off Route 202 in Garnerville New York.

Many thanks to Just-A-Buck, our own Lisa Nolte who has been the heart and soul of this endeavor and to all our store staff. Way to go!
