Spector Furniture and My Sister’s Place in Ansonia to raise money in fight against domestic violence
By Jean Falbo-Sosnovich
ANSONIA >> Two downtown businesses have teamed up in the fight against domestic violence.
Spector Furniture, located at 385 Main St., and My Sister’s Place, a thrift shop and donation center at 380 Main St., have partnered for a special “trade-in” furniture event throughout the month of June.
According to Spector Furniture owners, brothers Howie and Ken Kreiger, customers can trade in their old and gently used furniture, and receive a discount toward the purchase of something new. The donated furniture will be re-sold at Spector’s neighbor across the street, My Sister’s Place, where all proceeds benefit The Umbrella Center for Domestic Violence Services programs.
“Donate the old … refresh with new,” the Kreiger brothers say on their promotional flyer announcing the event. “It’s simple, it’s easy, it’s good for the community.”
