Thursday and Friday in the ReStore


Hey, everyone! I decided to combine the Thursday and Friday posts because a lot of the same things happen while we are open to the public for sales.

Thursday morning is when we make all the puzzle pieces lock together. From the time we get into the store at 8:00 until we open the doors at 12:00, we stay busy putting final touches on displays, double checking prices on the smaller items, and pricing the large furniture items on the floor. Something a lot of people don’t know is that we research every item that has any kind of identifier on it. If it has brand name on it, we look up that company and then take a considerable amount off the online price.

Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday before we open the doors, we get together as a team. We discuss what each person will be doing in the store while we’re open, discuss any updates on the houses we’re building, and we always close it with a prayer of thanks to the Lord for all the many blessings this ministry continues to see. Once the doors are open, the staff and volunteers go to work helping shoppers. Everyone here has such a passion for helping others and that energy is so contagious that you can’t help smiling when you’re here.

Some things have changed since I took over as store manager, but one thing that will never change is how grateful we are for every shopper and donor that comes to our store. Each of you are such a blessing to us, and we love seeing you guys every week.
