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 came to the compelling conclusion that closing the 2nd Chance Thrift Store was 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.
The Store will officially close on Tuesday, December 4.
We are deeply grateful to the founders, donors, shoppers, and volunteers who supported the Store for the past nine years.
