Break-In Delays Grand Opening for Mt. Airy Hospice Store

Break-In Delays Grand Opening For Mt. Airy Hospice Store

A break-in at a Mt. Airy hospice store Thursday night delayed the store's grand opening celebration after 'extensive' damage was done.

Officials with Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care says their Hospice Re-Sale Shoppe was vandalized, postponing the store's grand opening originally scheduled for Friday.

“We are still trying to determine the stolen items; but damage to our store and displays is extensive," said Sheila Jones, director of marketing for Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care. “It’s so sad that someone chose to vandalize a store whose sales go to support a mission of care for terminally ill patients.”
