E&H Thrift Store

by Ty Smith

Fall 2023 Update about the Emory & Henry Thrift Store

The Emory & Henry Thrift Store is located in the basement of the Memorial Chapel on campus. The thrift store is student operated and is open from 3pm-7pm, Tuesday through Friday.

Thrifting has become a big part of this generation. The thrift store on campus provides students the opportunity to exchange their clothes, or get new clothes at no cost.

According to the students involved, the goal of the thrift store is, “to provide clothing and other essential/non essential goods to students in need. Also creating a secure sense of community and encouragement for students to give back.” The Thrift Store also aims to reduce waste and carbon footprint by reusing.

Students are able to donate clothes to the E&H Thrift Store during operating hours. Clothes are always needed, and additional household items are welcome as well.

The expectation is that all donations are in good enough condition for resale.

Acceptable “payment” methods include volunteering to work a shift, donating a gently used item, or sharing a social media post about the store.
