We recently checked in with Cammi Climaco, the Director of our Brooklyn Reuse Center, to catch up on the latest news and see how she’s liking her view from the box.
You Guys, I’m so happy to be the new Director of the Big Reuse Gowanus location. Now that I’m in my fourth month, what really strikes me is the breadth of people that shop here. From Michelle, the neonatal nurse from Long Island who’s remodeling her house, to Stan, who’s opening a new restaurant in Greenpoint, to Chris and Gina who just signed a lease on their first apartment together…essentially everyone. EVERYONE. It’s truly a community store.
For the past few months I’ve been focusing on organizing the store, and if you’ve ever been here you would know it’s no small feat. But, I’m happy to say it’s finally coming together! We have a new lighting section, you can almost see all the lights! And the bath section is coming together, you can geek out on claw foot tubs all day. And everything else, well, if you can think of it, we probably have it. Somewhere.
Stop by and see what’s new! And say hello to Bagels, the most photographed cat in Brooklyn.
