When Pigs Fly Too opens 2nd location

When Pigs Fly is more than just another Main Street retail store and its second location will be too.

When Pigs Fly Too will open at 28 E. Main St. in Norwalk with a wine-and-cheese, ribbon-cutting ceremony from 5 to 6 p.m. Friday with the Huron County Chamber of Commerce. The grand opening will be held the following morning, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, with a drawing for a When Pigs Fly Too gift certificate.

“The new location will offer a selection of new ladies’ clothing, purses, scarves, gifts and jewelry, with some vintage offerings as well. The demand for services and the extra help needed to support families receiving services have created a need to bring more revenue into The Piggyback Foundation,” said Tony Schaffer, executive assistant for the chamber of commerce.

The first location is at 31 E. Main St.

Both locations are owned by The Piggyback Foundation, a local charity founded in 2007. The focus is to help maintain a sense of normalcy for families and children battling life-threatening illnesses.

In light of the foundation opening a second location at 28 E. Main St., the foundation recently hired a new director, Amy LaCivita. During her battle with cancer, her family was supported by The Piggyback Foundation.

“Amy brings her passionate social work experience and compassion for families fighting cancer, making her an excellent choice as director of the foundation. To help manage the new store, the foundation added Ann Longo to the team of managers,” Schaffer said.

The hours for When Pigs Fly Too are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. The store is closed Sundays and Mondays.
