As a home improvement thrift store, the Monroe County ReStore is a significant community resource that has been unavailable since mid-March when we closed due to the COVID-19 public health crisis.
We have spent time during this closure learning about ways to improve our safety measures and mitigate risk for staff, customers, and donors. We are now well-equipped to deliver a safe donor and customer experience using best practices and obtaining sources for cleaning and personal protective equipment (PPE).
With new measures in place (and in accordance with local/state/federal guidelines)
we feel we are ready to reopen our ReStore to the public tomorrow, May 22.
Below is some information about our approach to resuming operations that we hope you may find helpful.
Tiered approach to resuming operations (assuming of course all federal/local guidelines allow us to do so):
- Friday, May 22: Reopen to shopping
- Week of 5/26: Begin limited donation pickups
- Week of 6/9: Begin limited donation drop-offs at store
- Week of 6/16: Resume regular pickup/drop-off schedule
