For those who love Thrift Stores, if you do not know about our Tail’s End Thrift Store co-located with our Shelter at 255 Central Plank Road, Wetumpka, AL then you have been missing out! The store is open for shopping Thu, Fri & Sat’s from 9-3 and you might be amazed at what you can find there.
Our store stocks high-quality donated clothing, furniture, collectibles, art, books, jewelry, appliances, electronics, and so much more. We are incredibly grateful to all who donate items since that is where this all starts, and all donations are tax-deductible. Our Volunteers are there to receive donations Thu, Fri & Sat’s from 9 – 12. We take most anything that is ‘sellable’ but we cannot accept stained/dirty/dry-rotted clothing, broken appliances/tools/electronics/furniture, the old style heavy televisions, old style large/heavy computer monitors, stained mattresses & obviously soiled or damaged furniture.
Of course, our Thrift Store wouldn’t even be open if not for our incredible group of dedicated Volunteers who are there to receive/sort/price/place & sell donated items. We are indeed blessed with Volunteers who are willing to work so hard on behalf of our Shelter and all of the ‘profit’ goes to help our Shelter and the pets we care for. These Volunteers are running a first-class Thrift Store operation and if you have not been there to shop, you are truly missing out as there is something for everyone.
For anyone looking to Volunteer, our Thrift Store crew would love to bring you on board. Volunteering in our Thrift Store IS helping our animals as all of the profits from Tail’s End Thrift Store go to our work helping pets in need. Besides volunteering during the store’s normal hours of operation there are opportunities on Mon, Tue or Wed with sorting, pricing and placing items so all the new items are ready for sale by Thursday. Please just stop by between 9 am – 3 pm on a Thu, Fri or Sat to check it out and talk to the folks about volunteering. While you are there, please also thank our Volunteers for their endless hard work operating our Thrift Store.
To our shoppers/donors/supporters – you will find super deals and high-quality items at our Thrift Store. Our Volunteers take great effort in cleaning items, making sure clothes are all in good condition & checking that electronics/appliances actually work. Shoppers can feel confident in getting nice items when you come shop with us while also supporting what we think is a great cause! And many thanks to all who do shop at our Tail’s End Thrift Store – we greatly appreciate your support!
