Construction began this week on an expansion of the second-hand store in Peru that supports Illinois Valley Public Action to Deliver Shelter.

Lily Pads Resale Boutique, 4471 Progress Blvd. will add 4,000 square feet.

Construction will take about 45 days, adding space on the east side of the building. The wall separating the retail floor from the warehouse will be moved east, expanding the area for both.

PADS Board of Directors approved increased funding for the store, said Carol Alcorn, executive director. A donor provided a substantial gift, which along with donations, will fund the expansion, she said in a news release.

The store will remain open during construction. Alcorn asked customers and donors to be patient with construction activities outside and inside the store.

This year PADS opened its homeless shelters in Peru and Ottawa on Sept. 1, one month earlier than in previous years. In the first 30 days the shelter served nine families with 14 children.
