Unlike a new shirt, a secondhand shirt is classic, affordable, and house-trained to put itself in the hamper. Dress yourself smartly with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of goods at United Volunteers Thrift Store. This Groupon is valid only at the O’Fallon and St. Ann locations.
United Volunteers' knowledgeable staff lines the shelves with a vast inventory of upscale clothing, furniture, and wares, and uses all proceeds to help disadvantaged people. Peruse well-organized racks or enlist a shop guru to help you locate properly fitting shirts or pants for casual barbecues ($3–$5) or studded leather jackets and pants for crashing casual barbecues. Younger shoppers can don kid-size clothing ($1.10–$2) or challenge their minds with a puzzle or board game ($0.50–$2). Furniture, such as sofas ($100–$150) and recliners ($35), cradles spines while supplying the adequate recumbence to take in a book ($1 for hardcovers, $0.50 for paperbacks), DVD ($3), or impromptu nap. The ever-rotating inventory, which passes through a gauntlet of highly selective sorters, brings in an assortment of other items, such as housewares and entertainment centers, and weeds out unusable items such as torn dresses and forged Declarations of Independence.
United Volunteers spreads the love by using its proceeds to hire and supply vocational training to disadvantaged people. Stocking only donated items, the store will help reduce your clutter by picking up any items left over from yard sales, usually on Saturday afternoon, so long as donators call two weeks ahead of time via trusty toy telephones.
