Letter from the Lumby Community Thrift Store:

How do we show this community members our love?  We say Thank-you. 

“Thank-you.” What does this mean, this phrase that we find ourselves here at the Lumby Thrift Store repeating? It is a polite expression of one’s gratitude. People generally enjoy saying or doing kind things for others, and tend to do it without expecting to be thanked for it. We all know how wonderful it makes us feel when we are recognized for something we do. Please note, no matter how many times we say it, we mean it so very gratefully each time.  Thank-you. 

Your gracious efforts as a giving community of devoted shoppers and donation contributors need to be congratulated! Thank you for your constant assistance and support. You all continue to understand the need for the services of a thrift store in Lumby, and never stop investing in us, and therefore in your community. Thank-you. We strive to improve based on your needs, your opinions, your requests, and we like to think we are good listeners too. It is often the little things that matter most, whether a gesture, a kind word, a wink from behind a mask or a bit of patience. Thank-you! 

Building relationships in our village is very important to our volunteers and directors.  We have a shared passion that has brought us together to create a store that is incomparable to any other second-hand store in the valley.  Working successfully together has made it possible to accomplish so much this past year, overcoming hurdles while still upholding our shop standards.   Trust and respect are traits held in high regard in this municipality, and The Lumby Community Thrift Store Society truly hopes it has met your expectations.  Everyone knows that a society like this runs solely on the time, energy and hard work of its volunteers – people that show up every week and give their all from the goodness of their hearts, without being paid. From the collecting and sorting of donated items to the display and organization of the various departments, many hands do make light work. And we do it all for you, our people of the Lumby area, and those who come to visit.  The next time you are in the store and see a volunteer, please do not hold back your smile (use your eyes too), give a wave and say “Thank-you.”
