Reopening June 1, 2020!

The Day We Have All Been Waiting For! 

We have been waiting, and waiting, and finally the time has arrived for us to reopen our store! We are so excited to see all of you again! We cannot begin to express our appreciation for the outpouring of support from you, our customer and donor community. You’ve sent us kind and encouraging words through phone calls and emails. You’ve checked in on us and made sure we know how much you love our store! You’ve been so patient while we have had to be closed. For all this we just have to say, thank you. Being a part of such a supportive community has made all of this uncertainty and chaos bearable. And now, finally…our reopening day has arrived! 


New 2 You will reopen for business Monday, June 1. *New store hours are 11am-5pm Monday – Saturday.

We are very excited to be opening again, however, a few things will be a little different, and we want to make sure you are as prepared as possible in order to have the best shopping experience. So, here are the steps we are taking to make sure New 2 You is a safe environment for customers, donors, and our volunteers. 

We want you to know that our number one concern right now is everyone’s safety.

1. You must wear a mask that covers both your mouth and nose in order to enter our store. This is for your safety as well as ours. All of our volunteer staff will also be wearing masks. 


We have also installed hand sanitizer stations throughout the store for your convenience and safety. 

2. In order to practice social distancing we will be working with a smaller volunteer staff than normal in order to keep our total number of people in the store to a minimum.


3. For your safety, we have implemented a touch-free checkout system. You’ll show your items to the cashier, pay, and then you’ll pack up your own purchases at a separate wrapping station (similar to how Aldi operates). 


4. As per the Governor’s orders, we are only allowing 10 customers to be in the store at a time, and through appointment only. We realize this might require a bit of waiting on your part, and we ask for your patience. We’re trying our best to make our store a safe space for everyone. 


5. You must be 16 years or older in order to enter the store. So please leave the kids at home so that we can allow as many shoppers in the store as possible while maintaining our 10 person limit.


6. At this time our restrooms and fitting rooms will be closed. We will be continuing our usual no returns or exchanges policy.


7. At  this time we are not taking in donations. We will eventually take in donations again, but for now our focus is on making shopping in our store a safe and positive experience for our customers.


Last, but most importantly – we are SO incredibly grateful for all of YOU…our family of customers who have stood by us and offered support through this trying time. We have been so moved by your kind words and encouraging calls and emails. Although this time has been so tough for all of us, we will never, ever forget or take for granted the awesome community we belong to.

To make an appointment:

Appointments are 45 minutes, and may only be extended if no one is waiting to get into the store. 

Taking On Your Garage & Shed!

This week’s donation organization tip covers going through your garage and shed!

The garage and shed are places just big enough for us to store too many items, and it can be easy to start to forget what is in the back, or on the bottom shelf. It can be daunting to go through and clean/organize a garage. Hopefully some of these tips will help you figure out the best way to organize your garage and shed donations. 

Here are some tips to help you organize garage & shed items you’d like to donate! 

  • The number one thing to do before donating items out of your shed/garage is to make sure your items are clean. We know yard tools, bikes, and toys get used frequently– but if you’re hoping to donate these things and they’ve been sitting in the back of your garage collecting dust and cobwebs, it’s really helpful to us if you just wipe them down before bringing them in!

 

  • If your tools are rusty, we cannot sell them. We understand tools both for the garden and construction projects get used in dirty settings, and some wear and tear is no problem. However, if the metal is rusted, it is not safe for us to have it on the selling floor. 

 

  • Check for broken items before donating. If your items are cracked or broken we are unable to sell them. 
    • Frequently donated items that we receive broken:
      • Garden hose reels
      • Flower pots (please note, we are unable to sell the plastic flower pots that your plants come in when you purchase them)
      • Shovels
      • Kids toys (plastic bikes, sandbox toys, etc.)
    • We are so glad to receive these donations, we just ask that you double check to see if they’re functional first!

 

  • We cannot accept gas powered lawnmowers/tools. It is a safety risk for us to have something on the store floor that could potentially leak gas. Thank you for understanding!

 

  • The last tip we’re offering is just to check what’s inside your boxes before donating. We know it can be tempting to just take all the boxes from the back shelves and drop them off, but we appreciate it if you’re able to sort out what might be broken or unusable before bringing it over. 

 

We are so grateful for all of the support we receive from all of you. We are incredibly blessed to have people who send us kind words of encouragement during this time while we are closed. We are doing our best to prepare for the day we can open again. Until then, we hope you know how grateful we are for you and your dedication to our store!

Until next week,

Your friends at New 2 You

Games, Puzzles, and Toys!

This week’s donation organization tip covers your toy box and game closet.

 We know that games and toys are things that fit to particular times of life. Of course your kids don’t need their baby toys when they’re older because they’ve outgrown those toys. You can take that idea one step further with other games and puzzles. Maybe there are some games and puzzles in the back of your closet that you enjoyed a few years ago, but you prefer others now. We’d love to take those old games off of your hands! This way the game you don’t get as much joy out of, or that puzzle you’ve already done enough times can bring excitement to someone who has never done it before. 

Here are some tips to help you organize the toys and games you would like to donate:

  • For games and puzzles, first check to see if your game or puzzle is complete. 
    • This isn’t to say that we won’t take a puzzle or game if it’s missing one piece or so, but if it’s missing enough to make the game unplayable we are not able to sell it. 
    • If your game or puzzle is missing something, please label on the box “missing one piece”, or if it’s complete, just label it “complete”. This saves us a lot of time counting and checking for pieces!
    • Check for wear and tear on game parts, for example, the playing board or cards.
  • For all toys, and especially stuffed animals and dolls, check for missing parts, broken parts, rips, stains, and sticky spots.
  • If you have larger baby toys such as bouncers, or exersaucers that may have been sitting in the basement or attic for a while, make sure they’re functional and wiped clean. 
    • *Note, we are unable to accept cribs and carseats.
  • It’s always helpful to us when items come presorted, so if you’re donating toys and games along with other items, we’d love it if they had their own bag.

Hopefully this challenge of sorting through old games, puzzles, and toys will bring you happy memories as you remember when these items had different value to you. 

 

Until next week,

Your friends at New 2 You

Let’s Talk Linens!

This week’s donation organization tip is about your linen closet.

Let’s face it, for most of us the linen closet is the disaster that you shove away and pray the contents won’t tumble out when you open the door back up again! Some sheets fold nice and stay flat, but those darn fitted sheets take up lots of extra room. So let’s figure out how to reduce the linens taking up too much room in your house, and organize them for donations!

Here are some tips to help you organize the linens you would like to donate:

  • Check for stains, holes, fading, and fraying. We are unable to sell linens with holes or stains. However, if the item in question is 100% cotton, you can put it in a separate bag labeled “Lisa’s Rags”, and we’ll donate to Lisa’s Rags mission. Lisa’s Rags will also take your old bath towels.
    • For more information on Lisa and her mission follow this link!
  • Keep sets together.
  • For larger rugs, check for spots, vacuum, and if possible, write down the dimensions.
  • Label what size your sheets are. (It saves us lots of time measuring later!)

It’s so important that we remember to keep our spirits up during this hard time. So if you need a laugh today, here’s a link to a clip about the frustrations of folding fitted sheets. Enjoy!

Until next week,
