RT Store to close at end of month

In the RT Store, home supplies await local customers. The current pandemic and related economic factors is forcing the store to close at the end of the month.

LIBERTY — Rebuilding Together Kansas City’s RT Store will be closing at the end of the month.

The nonprofit’s executive director Clay McQuerry said the community organization is doing fine, but the retail store at 1908 Plumbers Way, No. 300 has not survived the pandemic.

“It’s not like we can do anything like Amazon where people can shop online,” he said. “This is the sort of place that had rotating stock and people really had to come in here.”

Store hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The last day will be Saturday, Feb. 27.

Despite the retail location closing, McQuerry said the almost two-decade-old Liberty-based nonprofit, which works to transform homes and lives of low-income families, seniors, people living with disabilities and veterans, is still going strong.
