We are hosting a customer appreciation day tomorrow, Saturday May 6th, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 3916 S. Crater Road, Petersburg. This celebration of the store’s fourth anniversary will include a variety of special promotions, refreshments, and door prizes to thank the community for their loyal support.
Select local artisans will also have their merchandise available – some utilizing items they purchased from the thrift shop.
It’s hard to believe it has been more than four years since the Crater Community Hospice Thrift Shop officially opened in April 2013. In just the last fiscal year, there were more than 1800 donations – that’s an average of more than 5 every single day the shop is open. Those donations are processed by manager Jennifer Adkins and her team of dedicated part-time staff and volunteers. An average of more than 200 volunteer hours are contributed every month as they assist with processing donations, pricing and arranging merchandise, and assisting customers.
Donations are accepted during all regular business hours, Monday – Saturday 10am-5pm. We welcome gently used clothing, books, household items, and furniture. We are not able to accept mattresses, computers, or exercise equipment. All items must come from a smoke-free/chemical- free home. Jennifer and her team maintain strict standards for what will be sold – other items are donated to be recycled or repurposed.
On any given day the store carries a wide range of goods, including jewelry, collectibles, kitchen items, bedding, toys and games, lamps, craft supplies, small appliances, books, home décor including seasonal items, and an extensive collection of clothes and accessories for men, women, and children. Some of these are included in weekly 50% off sales! While subject to change, you will often find kitchenware on sale every Wednesday, women’s clothes on Tuesday, wall décor on Thursday, kid’s items on Friday, and men’s clothing on Saturday. Monday is a mystery sales day – you never know what it will be, but recent sales have included belts and shoes. Items are processed daily, so visit often to see the latest finds!
