Grace Village Thrift is about so much more than shopping. We have great fellowship by sharing and listening about each others’ lives, while providing quality, gently used clothing, furniture, household items, linens, electronics, books, toys and more at drastically reduced prices.

Hours of Operation & Location

Grace Village Thrift is open every Saturday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.

(Except for the first Saturday in August and the last Saturday in December)

We are located at 15730 Pocahontas Trail Lanexa, VA 23089

Purpose

The Original PGO Thrift Spot opened in January of 2010 at the suggestion of our food pantry clients who stated there was no source of low cost clothing, furniture, or household goods in the area. The proceeds help to support our food pantry and mission outreach ministries.

Volunteering is good for you!!

Did you know that volunteers gain tremendous benefits from the act of giving? Like a reduction in stress and depression, decrease in physical pain, and a rush of endorphins that makes people literally feel great inside.

To get more information on volunteering, call our office at (757) 741-5070.

 

How can I help? Volunteer

We are always in need of volunteers to assist in the operation of Grace Village Thrift on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Volunteers may help by sorting, pricing, displaying, cleaning and straightening items. Volunteers are also needed run the registers after a short training session.  We especially need strong backs to help with our Saturday set up (7-8 a.m.) and close down (4-5 p.m.).  One hour of your life can mean so much to PGO!

Frequently Asked Grace Village Thrift Questions

Q. Is Proclaiming Grace Outreach a part of Tabernacle United Methodist Church?


A. Proclaiming Grace Outreach was born out of Tabernacle UMC; however, it is a standalone 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Corporation and partners with many different churches.


Q. Are donors allowed to leave merchandise under the carport on days other than Saturday?


A.  Please help us to protect our THURSDAYS!  For a variety of reasons essential to our Saturday openings, we CANNOT accept donations on Thursdays.  We have staff to assist with donations on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday.  If you are leaving items on other days when no one is present, please ensure items are left in the covered carport area.

 

Q. Does the Grace Village Thrift pick up and/or make deliveries?


A. We have been blessed with a panel van to pick up your gently used furniture and household items. We do not come out exclusively for clothing.  We schedule our pickups for Tuesday mornings. Please  call (757) 741-5070 to secure your spot today!  At this time we are not equipped to make deliveries.  

 

Q. Are customers allowed to negotiate on prices? Are all sales final?

A. There is no negotiating on prices like at some yard sales. We are a non-profit organization and we do not negotiate. We do, however, after certain period of time has elapsed, reduce the prices of certain items. All sales are final unless they are marked with our brightly colored Two Week Warranty stickers.  You must have a receipt to return the item.
