We’ve taken great measures to create the most user-friendly shopping experience for our customers, with input from upscale retailer consultants and architects. You won’t feel like you’re in a thrift store and that’s key! We have incredible donors who give great stuff in all categories and we’re always on the hunt for more. Mall shoppers, designer label seekers, consignment boutique fans, thrift aficionados, and never-been-thrifters all feel comfortable in our space and comment on the quality of both our products and merchandising. You mentioned that most thrift stores are part of national chains, why is it important that you keep focusing the importance of being local? http://mesadiewright.accessnetwork.us/2016/08/06/basic-questions-on-convenient-job-hunting-tactics/It sets us apart from every other nonprofit thrift store in town that we know about. The merchandise, employees and net profits are all sourced locally and stay local. Why do you give away space to a local artist or entrepreneur each month at the front of your store? The no-no in retail is giving away space that you have to pay for each month. I’m sure that anybody who hears about it is probably thinking, you guys are just dumb. But what we’re trying to do is cross-pollinate, by giving away space for them to sell and promote their merchandise.
