Pender ReGift Thrift Store is an outreach ministry of Pender United Methodist Church.
Our nonprofit mission is the distribution of material goods to the poor, locally, nationally, and internationally. We are the only church around with a 5,000 sq ft warehouse and a loading dock. Working with for-profit, nonprofit, and government partners, we maximize our nonprofit potential. Our thrift store supports our nonprofit mission. We are family friendly.
Being thrifty, seeking value, or frugality, are all generally given a bad rap, but in this tough economic climate, you can defend your right to be smart.
Our thrift store, offers a wide variety of unique items. Our furniture includes beds, couches, sofa beds, office chairs, tables, desks, cabinets, filing cabinets, baby furniture, and lawn furniture. All upholstered items have been sanitized in accordance with government regulations. Our gently-used clothing has been carefully sorted and sized. We have a wide variety of accessories including hats, shoes, purses, belts, and scarves. Our electronics department has a wide variety of computer equipment, including keyboards, monitors, printers, microwaves, and other small appliances.
We carry big appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, stoves, washers, and dryers. We have toys, sports equipment, linens, and lawn tools. Our books and media include DVDs, CDs, audio books, fiction, nonfiction, classics, a wide variety of children’s chapter books and early readers. We specialize in books for teachers and students. Our nonfiction books are organized including cookbooks, spiritual books, personal finance books, history and biography. Bibles are always free.

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.
Forced out of their location because the landlord could get more money from a different tenant, WCFM has recently split and relocated both their food pantry and their thrift store. 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.
