Partnership for Families, Children and Adults announced the Grand Opening of a retail store, Partnership FCA Thrift and Consignment. The store opens Aug. 30 and is located at 301-D Martin Luther King Boulevard. The grand opening will be celebrated with a ribbon cutting and reception at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 30.
Regular business hours will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday- Saturday. The store will accept gently used adult clothing, shoes and accessories. Donations can be dropped off at Partnership FCA Thrift and Consignment Store after Aug. 29. Prior to Aug. 29, donations can be taken to Partnership’s administrative building located at 1800 McCallie Avenue.
“It is our belief Partnership FCA Thrift and Consignment will be an excellent source of additional funding. By opening the doors to a new stream of revenue, we will be able to better support the many programs we offer that do not generate revenue, such as our domestic violence shelter and rape crisis center” said Pam Ladd, Chief Executive Officer. Ms. Ladd says the thrift store’s premiere location, Martin Luther King Boulevard, and its proximity to University of Tennessee at Chattanooga’s campus will generate foot traffic into the store, while increasing visibility of the agency and its programs as a whole.The store will be staffed by volunteers from Orange Grove Center, with a goal of opening employment opportunities to past or current recipients of Partnership services in the near future. Partnership for Families, Children and Adults is a 501(c)3 organization. All donations are subject to tax deductions.
