Murray's Home Again is owned and run by Rich and Kim Murray. It was started in 2003 as a home based business. Rich and I would spend our weekends visiting thrift shops, flea markets and yard sales. During the week while Rich was working and the girls were in school, I would sell the treasures we found on Ebay.
In February 2008, Rich was laid off. With a young family to support and a mortgage to pay, we decided to increase our inventory. We hoped that by doing so, we would provide enough income to support the family. .We started attending storage auctions, and were able to fill a box truck for very little. It quickly became overwhelming trying to sell it all out of our home, so we looked into renting a space to set up shop.
On June 3, 2008, we opened on Grove St in downtown Peterborough. The business grew very quickly and at the end of 2009, we were the proud owners of the property located at the corner of routes 101 & 123, formerly known as Tewksbury's. This property offers us all the space we need to sell our inventory and raise our family.
In March of 2020, we had to close Murray's Home Again to the public due to Covid-19. We immediately switched to selling online while we all followed the 'stay at home orders'. Once we were given the okay to reopen, Rich and I decided to continue selling online to stay safe and healthy and enjoy a little freedom since opening the shop in 2008. We continued practicing social distancing by spending time with our grandson, hiking and kayaking.
Throughout the year, folks would reach out telling us how much visiting the shop in person was missed. In mid-April we announced that we would reopen our doors to the public but there would be changes.
We will open on (most) Saturdays and no longer accept credit/debit cards but we are now using Paypal. We realized this past year that it's better to accommodate your schedule during the week but also offer hours for the public to browse. We are still here; buying and selling. If there is anything you are looking for, let us know. If you have an estate that needs to be liquidated, we're here to help.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out.
Thank you for your continued support.
