Haw River, NC -- No more waiting in long lines or throwing elbows for the five-day sales. The Hospice League of Alamance- Caswell is opening a year-round Hospice Flea Market store.

The grand opening is Friday at 8:00am. 

You'll find the same type of deals, but the location is new.  Instead of the former Winn Dixie Super Store near Cum-Park Plaza, the flea market will be on W. Main St. in Haw River.  Organizers hope the year-round store will help with sales.

"We had so many truckloads of stuff that as fast as we tried to unload, we could not get it unloaded in five days and sold," said organizer Faye Boswell.

What isn't sold was given to charity, said Boswell. "When we saw we were giving away to 19 charities, things we were giving away at the end of the year because we had to vacate our building, we said maybe the time has come to just go year-round." 

Boswell said the crowds will be the same. "Another wonderful zoo is exactly what we expect. We've been turning people away by the handfuls. They've been trying to shop here for the past two weeks, and we just are not ready to open."

The Hospice Flea Market will be open Tuesdays- Saturdays from 10:00 am- 5:00 pm.   Proceeds from the store go to support Hospice of Alamance and Caswell Counties.
