Big Improvements and a Super Sale Coming to the SPCA Rummage Store!
In response to Rummage Store customer feedback and our recent SPCA Community Survey, we are making improvements to better serve our donors and customers of the store, and ultimately to better serve the animals of our community and the people who love them. You asked and we listened! Here are some of the planned improvements:
- More convenient donation hours: The Rummage Store donation dock is now open 10AM to 5PM every Tuesday through Saturday for your convenience. New this year, we will be open the last eight days of the year, EVERY DAY, to receive your valuable year-end donations. If you are unable to fit your items in your car, we can arrange to pick them up. Also, if it would be more convenient to drop your Rummage Store donation at the main SPCA location on Berkmar Drive, we can accept it there as well. Do you have questions about what we accept? Please email@example.com or call (434) 293-8475.
- Friendlier prices: We now have a schedule for regularly reducing the price on unsold merchandise. Our sales will be advertised weekly online and on the Rummage Store Facebook page. Routine reduction in prices will occur without notice, so shop often for new merchandise and newly reduced prices! This was a great suggestion and we listened to you, our customers!
- Clean Store with Friendly Staff: We have been open in our current location for seven years and it is time for some housekeeping. We are selling down our current merchandise in order to give the store a thorough cleaning and reorganize our stock. This will give us an opportunity to spruce up our customer entryway with information about upcoming events at the SPCA, animals available for adoption, our mission for caring for the animals and how every purchase helps support our no-kill mission. This work will be done between December 26th and January 5th, during which time the store will be close for shopping.
- Welcoming environment that engages our community: We want you to come and stay awhile. Future plans for the store include: adding an art gallery wall that will feature animal-themed art by local artists, a cat window habitat, a pet-friendly patio and a cozy book nook that can host children’s reading programs. Interested in sponsoring one of these projects? Please contact Lisa Lane at firstname.lastname@example.org or (434) 964-3305.
In order to prepare the Rummage Store for these improvements, a super sale will be held. From Tuesday, December 9th through Tuesday, December 16th, everything in the store will be 50% off; and from December 17th through the 23rd the remaining merchandise will be 75% off! Following the super sale, the Rummage Store will be closed for shopping until January 6th allowing for the above improvements to be made, but will be open for donation drop off.
