Gift and Thrift reopened their doors mid-November 2017. They were closed to not only expand their space from 10,000 sqft to 14,5000 sqft but to also renovate the entire store.
Jordan Good, Furniture and Electronics Team Leader, remarks about the updates, "Besides more space to shop, it is much less understood that nearly every corner of our building was altered in some way. You would hard-pressed to recognize anything from what it was two years ago! Important changes include a purposefully designed retail section for the Booksavers of Virginia bookstore, a brand new drive-through carport and receiving room for donation drop-off and furniture pick-up, and an extensive 107 kilowatt rooftop solar panel system, among other utility upgrades."
Jordan continues to explain why the project was a necessary move for Gift and Thrift, "In my five years at Gift and Thrift, we have seen a significant increase in donations, sales, and public interest in our organization. "
