After much thought and prayer, an exhaustive review of historical sales and expense reports, and with the unanimous support of the FOC Board of Directors, we have come to the compelling conclusion that closing the 2nd Chance Thrift Store is necessary for the overall health of the FOC Ministry and to put our focus back on our primary mission.
This decision did not come lightly and included numerous factors, such as declining sales, increased expenses, and national trends in changing conditions to the thrift store industry as a whole.
September 22 will mark the last official day to donate to the Store; a closing sale will begin on October 1 and will continue for several weeks. The Store will close by end of calendar year 2018.
We are deeply grateful to the founders, donors, shoppers, and volunteers who supported the Store for the past nine years.
