50% Off Clearance Sale in Selected Areas
Wow! Surprise! Yet another store remodel sale! Now that the racks have be rearranged (and mostly re-racked), we are ready to start modeling the back portion of the store. In order to do that, we need to reduce a lot of our stock in housewares, children’s toys, crafts, office supplies and other areas. So, our need is you gain! We need to get things out of the store, you can get bargains! Come in to see what is on clearance.
2019 Store Remodel
We have now been in our new store for about six months! Enough time to learn what worked and what didn’t work. We have also been listen to your comments. Now, with the closing last week of St. Vince Christmas Store, it is time to do a reconfiguration and remodel of the store over the next two weeks. But we will be be open – so come on in. And keep those comments coming!
More Remodel Sales will be Coming!
You know me well enough by now after the last five months to know I will find any excuse for a sale… So you can expect that there will be a number of sales before, during and after the remodel (i.e. “the famous pre-remodel sale,” “the popular during-reconfiguration sale,” “the donn’t miss-it, while-the-dust-settles, almost-done-with-the-remodelling sale,” and, of course, “the grand opening sale”).
For those who don’t normally shop second-hand stores (which had included me before I came to SVdP), I have been struggling to explain things like tag sales (and why we have them), since they don’t really apply to a regular retail store (which is how I am hoping you will start to think of the St. Vincent Store as, when you head out to go shopping). Meaning, when you need a pair of pants, stop here first to see if we have what you need. If we do, it will probably be about $5, unless something designer and then about $10 to get something that is new or in very, very good condition (we send the other donations to our charity uses at our Transition Support Services Center, Housing Facility, CBJ Warming Shelter and other agencies, etc.). If we don’t, then you’re off to one of the retail stores in town. But, its worth the quick stop since we’re right on the way.
Oh, I digress… Back to tag sales. As items come into donations (yes, I know, our donation hours are really restrictive now… sorry, sorry, sorry – please volunteer to sort). the sorting and pricing crew tag the item with colored tags that change each month (pink, blue and yellow) in rotation. This allows us to know how long items have been on the racks and shelves. And if an item is not selling after a month, we discount it 50%, two months 75%, and three months it gets pulled, and sent out of the store to our charity channels. BNow you understand tag sales!
We Are Now Open to 6:00 pm!
