Emory & Henry College Announces Grand Opening of Thrift Store on Campus

by Haley Arni

Emory & Henry College is excited to announce the grand opening of its first on-campus thrift store located on the lower level of the Memorial Chapel on February 1, 2023. The Emory & Henry community is invited to celebrate the new E&H Thrift Store with a ribbon cutting at 5 p.m. The store was made possible by the Appalachian Center for Civic Life and will be primarily managed by Bonner Scholars and Civic Leader Scholars.

“The idea of this store was initiated by students and will be predominantly student-led and operated,” said Leah Wilson, Coordinator of Civic Life for the Appalachian Center for Civic Life. “I am incredibly proud and impressed with the groups of students on campus that have worked together to make this idea possible.”

Provided for Emory & Henry students, the E&H Thrift Store will be unlike any other shopping experience. The store will not accept money for the exchange of clothing, instead, students can choose to “pay” for items in one of four ways: volunteer to work a 30-minute shift at the store; donate a gently used item for the store; share a social media post about the E&H Thrift Store; or fill out a quick survey about the store at check out.

“I am so excited about opening a thrift store on campus because I believe that it will be a great asset to our campus community,” said E&H sophomore and store team member, Madison Reeser. “This thrift store will provide students with a no-cost, easily accessible, second-hand shopping experience.”

The thrift store will carry predominantly clothing and accessories for all seasons, including a professional-style clothing section. The store will also carry appliances, household items, books and more.

To support the E&H Thrift Store, donations will be accepted at the store during business hours or at the Appalachian Center for Civic Life, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Currently, the store is seeking donations for common household items.

Once the thrift store officially opens, the operating hours will be Tuesday through Thursday from 2 to 7 p.m., and Friday from 2 to 5 p.m.

This thrift store will provide students with a no-cost, easily accessible, second-hand shopping experience.
