PRLog - Feb. 21, 2014 - AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The Fort Gordon Thrift Shop’s 25-cent sale in February was so popular that the sale will be offered again for First Saturday on March 1. The shopping event runs from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and features 50 percent off Thrift Shop-owned coats, shoes and formal wear in addition to the 25-cent sale on Thrift Shop-owned clothing. Military clothing, furniture, house wares and books are excluded.
March 1 is the next First Saturday at the Fort Gordon Thirift Shop in Augusta.
“The response to our first 25-cent sale was so amazing that we’ve decided to offer it one more time,” said Stephanie Lainez, manager of the Fort Gordon Thrift Shop. “Shopping the sale on First Saturday is a great way to stock up on winter clearance items and get ready for the warmer weather we all know is coming.”
The Fort Gordon Thrift Shop is one of the largest thrift and consignments stores in the Central Savannah River Area. Its three large, well-organized and bright buildings feature gently-used furniture, clothing, and toys, all offered tax-free. Civilian or military, everyone is welcome to shop at the Thrift Shop.
“First Saturday also offers a great opportunity to donate or consign items for those who need to do a little spring cleaning or are preparing for a PCS,” said Lainez. “Donations of gently used items are tax-deductible and consignors can earn up to 70 percent of the sales price of each item.”
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 cardholders 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.
The Thrift Shop is located in Building 39102 behind the Exchange in the Brems Barracks near Avenue of the States and 40th Street.
Profits from the Thrift Shop go toward annual scholarships and grants for community organizations and military dependents.
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.
