Cornucopia Consignments Closing end of December in Pleasant Hill

1885 Oak Park Blvd, Pleasant Hill

Earlier this month we learned that Second to None Consignment shop would be closing early next year in downtown Walnut Creek and someone left a comment on Facebook that Cornucopia Consignments was closing as well in Pleasant Hill.

From their Facebook page:

Cornucopia Consignments will be closed by the end of December.

Beginning in 2015, our building that houses the store will be used instead to provide Cancer Support Community San Francisco Bay Area‘s growing services for cancer patients and their families. When Cornucopia opened, CSC served about 500 people per year. This year, CSC will serve close to 2,000.

We regret that we will need to close Cornucopia, but our stakeholders understand that our highest priority is for CSC to deliver its mission. We want to express our heartfelt appreciation to everyone who helped to make Cornucopia “the little house of treasures” — and those who made a lasting difference for so many people facing cancer. And perhaps most importantly, we would like to extend a huge thank you to the volunteers who made Cornucopia such a great place for so many years; and of course the wonderful customers and consignors. Thank you!

Until then, come by for some great sales!
