Schenk’s Can Was Canned

Pink Slip

Not Ron Schenk

Ron Schenk, who worked regularly at the Pacific Grove thrift store he founded two decades ago, wants to set the record straight: He did not “retire” from his job, he was fired. In November, Schenk, 82, the founder of the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Shop on Forest Avenue, was told by the president of the board of directors for the local chapter of St. Vincent de Paul Society that the board wanted him gone.
