Very glad to hear about your new safety precautions, particularly the UV sterilization, but you need to temperature-check ALL people coming in - not just the staff and volunteers. Just takes one sick person coming in to potentially get everyone there sick.

The Closet has a booth in the Business Expo area at the Herndon Festival on June 1st and 2nd. Come check it out!
I heard yesterday that you no longer accept stuffed toys, no matter how new or clean? :( Why is that? If people can't donate stuffed toys to a charity thrift shop, where would one donate them?

Herndon's thrift shop that gives back! We are open 6 days a week 10-5PM with evening hours Mondays & Thursdays to 8PM. We donate our profits back with grants to non profits doing good in the community and scholarships to students at local high schools.

The Closet began operations in 1974 and has grown steadily with its focus on helping low-income families, immigrants and budget-conscious shoppers find quality clothing and household goods at affordable prices. We receive no government funding. We are open for sales on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Operating as usual
