The Bergen County section of the National Council of Jewish Women re-opened its fully sanitized Council Thrift Shop on June 16. Shoppers and donors are welcome to visit the fully stocked store at 75 South Washington Ave., in Bergenfield.
The store is clean, sanitized, and fulfills all CDC recommendations. Shoppers will find summer clothing and household items at bargain prices with frequent daily specials. All newly donated items will be kept in storage before they can be brought onto the floor.
Requirements for donations have changed. All donated items, both clothing and household good, must be wearable or ready for sale. Clean clothing donations must be in large, thick plastic bags; other items should be in a bag or box. No loose items will be accepted. Donors are invited to drop off gently used summer clothing and household goods. For a contactless donation from the parking lot, call (201) 385-3702.
“As we re-open, we are committed to ensuring that maintaining the health and safety of our shoppers, donors, volunteers, and staff is our highest priority,” the NCJW Thrift Shop’s vice presidents, Fran Einiger and Doris Sarokin, said. “We realize that many people have been cleaning out their closets while in quarantine, and are gratified that their items find a second home with the members of our community.”
The store now is closed on Mondays, and shopping and donating hours have changed. For more information, call (201) 385-3702 or go to ncjwbcs.org.
