LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- The YWCA of Greater Lafayette celebrated the grand opening of a new business Tuesday afternoon.
The former Surplus and Salvage business has been renamed the Chestnut Street Mercantile.
Don Stein owned and operated the Surplus and Salvage for eight years before his death last November.
Stein and his family donated all the inventory to the YWCA after his death.
His daughter, Lori Stein Sabol, said her family is excited to see her father's legacy of giving back to the community continue.
"To see it going on and living and moving forward definitely brings a great deal of pleasure to all of our family." said Sabol.
The chair of the advisory board for the new Chestnut Street Mercantile, Jodi Hamilton, said the YWCA is honored the family chose them to take over the business.
"For them to look at us and trust us enough to know that we can make a go of it and make it happen, it feels good," said Hamilton.
As a part of the deal, all of Stein's former employees will still work for the renamed business.
All the profits will now go to the YWCA benefitting all their programs, especially the program for dometic violence victims.
