The thrift shop that gives back to the community is opening its doors after global pandemic restrictions lifted —
After closing its doors amidst the coronavirus global pandemic, Clothes Less Traveled Thrift Shop, Inc. will open its doors to the public on June 16, 2020. The store on Ga. Highway 74 in Peachtree City has been closed since mid-March, following direction from the local government.
Clothes Less Traveled will be following guidelines and recommendations from the National Retail Federation and the Center for Disease Control to maintain the health and safety of those within the store. It has intensified cleaning and disinfecting, will be encouraging social distancing and has set up hand sanitizing stations, among other precautions.
The store has also changed its hours. To accommodate frequent cleaning and help maintain the safety of their volunteers and staff, they will now be open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Clothes Less Traveled, established in 1997, solves needs for the members of the local community in three distinct ways. It operates the largest thrift store (more than 25,000 sq. ft.) in the southside metro area providing goods and clothing to those needing quality items at a great value.
The organization is able to accomplish this in no small part due to the terrific dedication and work of a largely volunteer staff. As a result, Clothes Less Traveled has been blessed to share its store proceeds of more than $7 million to over 40 deserving local area charities.
