Our volunteer staff come from all walks of life. Some are retired, others work full time jobs, some are college students, and others volunteer as part of a group.

Thrift Store Discount

All Club for Boys and Thrift Store employees and active volunteers are eligible for a 20% discount on Thrift Store purchases. (Active = 20+ hours a month)

  • The 20% employee/volunteer discount is not transferrable to family members or friends, and employees/volunteers are not allowed to use their discount on behalf of anyone else. For instance, you can’t go shopping with your 5 cousins and aunt and use your discount for everyone’s purchases at checkout.
  • The 20% discount may not be used in conjunction with the monthly storewide 50% sale, senior citizen discount, military discount, or any special promotion.
  • Staff and volunteers are required to show their name badge.

If you have questions about this benefit, please contact Thrift Store Manager Jeanni Gossard.
