The Shoppes at Beverly Farm is one of the best-kept secrets in the Riverbend. It is a gift and a resale shop, and a place to get coffee, specialty coffee drinks, and desserts.
The redesigned space is open and bright allowing for a great shopping experience. Beverly Farm residents and employees work in The Shoppes. Allowing residents to learn life skills, and provides them with opportunities and challenges, within their functional capabilities. All proceeds from The Shoppes go directly to the Beverly Farm Foundation, which supports living arrangements, the medical clinic, developmental training, the recreation center, the “I’m An Artist” program, and more.
The resale shop at The Shoppes provides not only for the people who call Beverly Farm home but for the entire area as well. Women’s, men’s, and children’s clothing, shoes, books, toys, and more are all available. All items in the resale shop are donated.
