DAVENPORT — It’s back to business, but with some changes, at Cinderella’s Cellar. The volunteer-run resale store is operated by Catholic Service Board and benefits the Kahl Home.

Linda Redington, publicity chair, said the store reopened Sept. 1 with masks required, social distancing and extra cleaning.
The grand opening went very well, Redington said.

Cinderella’s Cellar closed due to COVID-19 in March. On May 16 it began accepting donations during limited hours. Volunteers processed donations a week after being delivered.


New store hours are Tuesday from 9 a.m. to noon, Thursdays from noon to 3 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon. In addition to the new hours, which will continue through at least December, the number of customers inside the store at any given time will be limited. Dressing rooms will be open and sanitized after each use. There are no returns allowed.

A protective shield has been installed at the cash register and jewelry counter.

“Volunteers, as well as customers, will be required to wear masks and a volunteer will be at the door to greet customers and enforce a limited number of people to allow for social distancing.”

Fall and winter clothes are on sale. There will not be a Christmas open house this year, but Redington said Christmas items are now on sale. “There is an entire room dedicated to Christmas already.”

Cinderella’s Cellar is located at 230 W. 35th St., Davenport. Visit their Facebook page at
