“Bargain hunters looking for holiday decorations and gifts should head out to Fort Gordon on First Saturday to take advantage of the deals and discounts at the Thrift Shop,” said Stephanie Lainez, manager of the Fort Gordon Thrift Shop. “We receive gently-used donated and consigned items every week, so we have something for everyone.”
The Thrift Shop sells furniture, clothing, toys, crafts and Fort Gordon-themed items and offers them all tax-free. Operated by the Fort Gordon Spouses’ & Civilians’ Club, the shop is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the First Saturday of each month (October through May) from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Donations are accepted during business hours as well as at the donation bin located next to the shop. DOD card holders may consign items every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and First Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
Profits from the Thrift Shop go toward annual scholarships and grants for community organizations and students. In 2013, the Thrift Shop’s success helped the club award more than $20,000 in scholarships and grants.
The Thrift Shop is located in Building 39102 behind the Exchange in the Brems Barracks near Avenue of the States and 40th Street.
The Fort Gordon Spouses’ & Civilians’ Club is an active part of the Fort Gordon community that leads service projects, operates the Thrift Shop and provides volunteer opportunities, special events and activities. A private nonprofit organization, the club is not affiliated with Fort Gordon or the U.S. Army. Membership in the club is open to anyone affiliated with Fort Gordon.
