News Good Samaritan Inn Thrift Shop is closed. For now. SHARE ON: Taylor Ablett, staff Monday, Dec. 15th, 2014 The Good Samaritan Inn is closing its doors, at least for the time being. A zoning issue has forced the closure, as board members decide their next step. City council has been asked to create a women’s shelter at the thrift shop, which would mean rezoning to allow both. Council has pushed back the issue more than once, as it is still unclear what the specifics would be.
