Angel View Opens New Hemet Store; Also Clearance Center

July 21, 2015

Angel View, a nonprofit serving children and adults with disabilities, is relocating its resale store in Hemet to a new location and converting the existing store to a Clearance Center, announced Tracy Powers, general manager of resale stores.

“We’ve been in business in Hemet for 20 years at our 305 West Florida Avenue location and we greatly appreciate our shoppers’ loyalty,” Powers said. “So we’re very excited to announce that on Saturday, July 25, we’ll open in a new location on the corner of Sanderson Avenue and Acacia at the Lowe’s shopping center. Unlike the old building,” he added, “the new store is air conditioned and state of the art, which will make for a better shopping experience.”

The popular Angel View store on Florida Avenue is becoming a Clearance Center where unsold inventory from Angel View’s stores in Western Riverside County will be sold at deeply discounted prices. “Although it won’t be quite as cool indoors as the new store, if people don’t mind shopping under evaporative cooling, they’ll find hundreds of bargains in clothing, household goods and furniture,” Powers said.

“We can’t thank our donors and shoppers enough,” noted Walter Johnson, MD, president of the Angel View board of directors. “Our stores generate vital revenues that enable us to provide an exceptional quality of life for our clients. Every shirt and shoe someone donates or buys turns into a client’s step toward independence.”

The new Hemet store is located at 304 S. Sanderson; the phone number is (951) 929-8093. Store hours are Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Sundays 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Donations requiring home pickup can be scheduled by calling (866) 670-8666.

Angel View’s mission is helping children and adults with disabilities reach their maximum potential. Every year, the 60+-year old nonprofit helps hundreds of people make significant gains through a variety of programs. For more information, email or call (760) 329-6471.

Timmy’s Story

Timmy spent his childhood baffling the medical community. His digestive issues and seizure activity were so profound, doctors didn’t understand how he could still be alive. His mom devoted herself to medical research and finding a place that could care for her son. Between hospitalizations, he lived in various group homes in New York. At the last one, he had so many injuries his mom sought another solution. They headed west.

Since moving into an Angel View home, Timmy is calmer, more expressive, and has far fewer seizures. He loves the staff, his housemates, our therapy dogs and his word board. He’s so adored by staff, his mother says happily, “Now he has more than one mommy.”
