A year after closing its longtime Brooklyn Heights location, Housing Works has opened up a new thrift shop in the borough. The new location in Park Slope at 424 7th Avenue opened up for business on Saturday.

Housing Works had been on Montague Street for more than a decade before closing in March 2017 after the lease for the storefront ended. The charitable organization and landlord decided not to renew by “mutual agreement,” Housing Works spokesperson Katherine Oakes told Brownstoner at the time.

Before closing the storefront at 122 Montague Street the charity announced that it would be reopening elsewhere.

“We love our Brooklyn Heights community but we want to assure our customers that this is not goodbye for good, as we have plans to start location scouting in the surrounding area,” said Cheryl Grimm, Vice President of Housing Works Thrift Shops in a statement.

The new store joins another Park Slope Housing Works location at 266 5th Avenue. The charity also has 11 other stores in Manhattan.
