Shelves and racks are filling up and we are getting comfortable in our new surroundings. Most staff members like to take a stroll through the shop each time they come in to work, just to see what is new or has changed. They say…”it looks like we are ready to open”. And we say…”well………we are getting closer”!
Last week we fixed our attention on housewares. Pricing and filling the displays. This week it is clothing. We are sorting, de-wrinkling, pricing and stocking our racks. On the back end, we are working on setting up our donation receiving area which will be a trial and error situation for a while. Next week, we will tweak and clean….put on the finishing touches and then be ready to open on Sunday, March 1.
I am hoping a large part of our team of 60 (plus) volunteers will be in attendance at our opening celebration. We expect a very large customer response and would like to share their excitement with our staff members. I think it will be one of those things that “you just had to be there” to get the total picture of how people will respond to our new atmosphere.
Only 10 days away! **** Opening Celebration **** Sunday, March 1 **** 12 noon to 5 p.m.
