The Emporium has reopened


The dozen or so volunteers who run The Emporium have all received their second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, and so The Emporium, 106 S. Water St., reopened Thursday, March 4, said long-time volunteer Heather Pollard.

Hours for the time being are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Pollard said.

The store, like many others in Las Cruces and across the country, closed temporarily in accordance with state public health orders.

The Emporium opened in late June 2015 and generates about $6,000 a month for Mesilla Valley Hospice (MVH), which receives 100 percent of its proceeds.

The inventory is made up entirely of donations, including antiques, collectibles and mint-condition furniture, Pollard said.

Anyone with furniture to donate can call MVH at 575-523-4700 to arrange for pickup, or call Pollard at 575-525-1235 to arrange a meeting at The Emporium to deliver donations. Pollard and Achen said The Emporium does not accept donations of electronics or household appliances.
