WomenSafe The Resale Shoppe's Response to COVID-19

Want to stay up to date on the latest news from the Resale Shoppe? Sign up for our e-mail list!

As many of you know, in May, Governor Mike DeWine announced that Ohio's retail establishments were approved to reopen on May 12th.

Although we were very excited to hear this news, WomenSafe wanted to ensure that we re-entered this new world correctly.

To do so, we needed to take the time to ensure best practices, protocols, and to see how other retail shops/thrift stores were weathering this new normal. 

We are excited to announce that WomenSafe is now open for shopping and donations.

We will be open on a modified schedule for the time being:

Tuesday: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Thursday: 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
Saturday: 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Many new policies and procedures have been added to adhere to all Ohio Health Department requirements and best practices and to ensure the safety of everyone:

  • Social distancing will be encouraged 
  • Masks will be required for both workers and customers 
  • Trying on clothing will be temporarily suspended
  • Increased cleaning and sanitizing  
  • A limited number of people in the store 

The following are our guidelines for accepting donations:

  • Due to limited space, each donor is limited to 3 boxes/bags per car. However, once our shelves are full we will stop accepting donations that day.
  • Please disinfect any hard surfaces and wash clothes.
  • Place items in closed container/box.
  • Consider organizing items by category (i.e. clothes together).
  • Box/bag donations and "quarantine" them for 72 hours.

We would like to thank our patrons for their patience and support during this time. YOU have made the store what it is today, a community that comes together to assist victims of domestic violence in our community.

Staff, Volunteers, Donors, Survivors, and Customers; our Resale Shoppe family is filled with so much love and support. We realize that many of you fall into multiples of these categories: both a customer and a donor, a survivor and a volunteer, a staff member and a customer, and that truly inspires us. Thank you for your support, and we can't wait to see you again soon!

  • Thank you to our Annual Event Partner Leading Lady!
