WFCM and the Pender ReGift Thrift Store

regift-WFCM

One partnership that we are particularly proud of is that with Western Fairfax Christian Ministries. When evaluating the relationship as an entrepreneur, it is very unusual that WCFM and Pender ReGift Thrift Store should be partners. We essentially have the same business, in the same location, occupying the same marketplace. We are clearly competitors! PRTS’ competitive advantages are that we sanitize more upholstered furniture than WCFM, and we have a stronger recycling stream for our discarded goods. WCFM has a better location.

But both ministries attribute their service to God, and in this relationship our partnership becomes not only possible, but flourishes. Clients they cannot serve are referred to us, and vice versa. We’ll trade a couch for a bed. In an recent pickup, Martin (PRTS) provided the truck and Tom (WCFM) provided the labor: The orgs split the booty.

The thrift store is now located at 13939 Metrotech Drive, Chantilly, VA 20151. Some of their donors still have not found them at their new location, but because we’re partners, we are happy to tell them how to get there.

Immediate opening for backup Assistant Director, Pender ReGift Thrift Store.

When Maryann Weber is not available we need to have someone cover the store.

You will receive training on the cash register software and store procedures.  You will help customers, answer the phone, and be a witness to those we help with this important ministry.
