What can you expect during a volunteer shift?
Sale Prep - Do you like to organize? Are you good at customer service? During this shift you hang sale items, help check in consignors, and get the sale floor ready for the big sales!
Sales Floor – This shift is for you if you’re a “people person”! You may be assisting cashiers by “de-tagging” items at the register, assisting shoppers at our hold bay, straightening racks and rehanging items, assisting shoppers, or assisting with security by checking bags and strollers as folks leave.
Sale Breakdown – This shift is for you if you like to sort and organize and want hangers for our next sale! You will be helping us sort unsold items and packing up donated items.
Please note that volunteer spaces will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.
If you want to volunteer please register here.
Cancellations – We understand that things can happen at the last minute so if you find it necessary to cancel or reschedule your shift we ask that you call to let us know as soon as possible. Volunteers who do not notify us of a cancellation will not be allowed to register as a volunteer for the next season's sale. Please understand that these guidelines have been put in to place to maintain a high-quality sale.
Children – For their own safety, children are not allowed during volunteer shifts. It is a very busy time and it is too difficult to watch out for little ones while we are preparing for the sale.
Drop Off Appointments & Volunteering – We ask that volunteers not schedule a drop off appointment during their shift. Volunteers may do so either before or after their shift(s).
