Learn A Little About Us
On January 7, 2019 the New Life Thrift Store opened in downtown Pottsville and on March 1, 2019 we had our Grand Opening celebration. The town has welcomed us with open arms and excitement. The downtown area of Pottsville was in great need for a beautifully organized clothing store, a store that would sell great quality fashions at a great price and generate enough income to allow us to donate a portion of our proceeds to help local charities. With the large retailers and designer stores closing all over our country due to the online shopping sites, thrift stores are often the best option or even the only option for many local shoppers to dress themselves and their families. We promote our store to the entire community and encourage them to donate to our store, where the items will be sold to the local community and not shipped out of the area.
We would like to be a shining spot in Pottsville where our customers feel good about their purchase and feel a connection to us personally. We work hard to keep our store clean and fresh. “If we wouldn’t wear it, we won’t sell it” is our thinking, we are particular about the cleanliness and age of the goods we sell. We also have a relationship with another charity where we donate the items that we can’t sell.
One way we promote our store is to invite the public to join us in clothing drives. We’ve done a couple at local churches. The church announces the date that we will be coming and has their attenders leave their donations behind their cars. While they’re in service we pick up their donations, and then attend the service if we can. Of course we always offer receipts to our donors for their tax deductions.
On March 28th we hosted a luncheon for the Schuylkill Chamber of Commerce Women in Business on in our store, we feel the best way to increase sales is to have personal relationships with our community.
