THRIFT SHOP

7/1/20 Update: **Effective Immediately**

As cases of COVID-19 increase in our state and county, the health and safety of our customers, staff, and volunteers are our first priority. With prayerful consideration of the above, the OLu Thrift Shop has elected to close until further notice. Thank you for your cooperation.

 

Donations & Volunteers: We will not be accepting donations, furniture donations, or doing furniture pickups until further notice. Since most of our amazing volunteers fall into the at-risk category, which is 65 and over, or people of all ages with underlying medical conditions, we are operating with about 20% of our volunteer base. If you or anyone you know is under 65, in good health and available, please give us a call. We need volunteers!

 

Safety: You will notice the shop looks quite different now. Racks and fixtures have been removed to create more space and support social distancing. Floor markers will assist the flow of traffic throughout the shop and at the checkout line to encourage and reinforce social distancing. The number of customers in the shop will be limited as well.

 

The shop will be deep cleaned prior to opening, and all high touch surfaces will be cleaned on a regular and frequent basis, including shopping carts, door handles, and checkout counter. Hand sanitizer will be available to customers at the entrance of the store and also at the checkout counter. To protect your health and safety, fitting rooms and public restrooms will be temporarily closed. All volunteers and staff are required to wear face coverings, and we are asking our customers to do the same.

 

Thank you for supporting the Orange Lutheran High School Thrift Shop and our ministry. We have missed you all and look forward to serving you!

 

MISSION

The mission of the Orange Lutheran High School Thrift Shop is to support the Christian character and education of Orange Lutheran High School students through financial assistance and reach out through ministry to our community.

HISTORY

The original Lutheran High School Thrift Shop opened in 1969 on Chapman Ave. at Prospect and was open for nearly 20 years. The shop eventually closed, but after a few years, it was decided that a thrift shop was needed to provide for student financial assistance. In 1994 the Lutheran High School Thrift Shop opened at 686 N. Tustin St., located in the building we now call the furniture store. Within a few years, we outgrew that space and took over the adjacent building which is our present location. The main store houses clothing, household goods, media, electronics, jewelry, and collectibles. In the furniture store, you will find furniture, refrigerators, lamps and mirrors, medical equipment and rugs.

How is our thrift shop different from other thrift shops? Our shop is clean and organized, we have the best prices in town, and we know many of our customers by name plus what they are looking for!
