This Week's Featured Item at the Community Warehouse: Electric Thermostats

 The Western Catskills Community Warehouse (WCCW) is open for business on Fridays and Saturdays in the Village of Stamford, offering new and gently used building materials, kitchen and bathroom fixtures, appliances, architectural salvage, and more. The Western Catskills Community Warehouse is being operated byWestern Catskills Community Revitalization Council, Inc. (WCCRC) and all proceeds will benefit WCCRC’s programs and services.

   Our featured item this week is a group of brand new electric heat thermostats (pictured below). Having trouble keeping your home at the right temperature? Is a room either too cold or too warm? Your thermostat may be suspect! Reasonably priced; they can be purchased locally this weekend, here at the Community Warehouse, at 76 Main Street in the Village of Stamford.

   All items for sale at the WCCW are donated by area businesses, contractors, and individuals and are on display in the delightful showroom located conveniently on Main Street. WCCRC is requesting charitable donations of new and gently used merchandise for the WCCW, including kitchen and bathroom fixtures, cabinetry and countertops, appliances, flooring and siding, tools and other items. Please contact WCCRC for the Donation Guidelines at 607-652-2823 or

    Doug Senterman, the Community Warehouse manager, states: "As the warmer months approach and we begin to leave the cold weather behind us, the home renovation and DIY project season will leave us busier than before. Thanks to the donations we have received over the course of the Winter, we have been able to maintain a continuous supply of reasonably priced inventory available to the community. The Warehouse is a win - win for towns in our area: all proceeds benefit WCCRC, enabling our nonprofit organization to continue our work rehabilitating homes for low and moderate income families and conducting Main Street Revitalization projects. The Spring and Summer seasons will leave us with a tremendous need for more volunteer staff, as well as donation drop-offs. If you or someone you know would be willing to work a volunteer shift or two at the store, please let us know. Thank you to those who have already donated, volunteered, and continue to support the store and the organization. We look forward to the continuing success of the Community Warehouse in the months to follow." 

   Donation drop-offs during our weekend business hours are welcome and encouraged. For more information regarding acceptable donations, please visit us on the web or give us a call at 607-652-2072.

   The Western Catskills Community Warehouse opens its doors at 10:00 a.m. on Fridays and is open until 4:00 p.m. Saturday hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 pm.
