The North Fulton Community Charities (NFCC) Thrift Shop got a much needed facelift and renovation thanks to the generosity of The Home Depot Foundation and other grant funds, the organization reported in a news release.
The renovated space will have new dressing rooms, clothing racks, shelving, flooring, check-out (cash-wrap) station, and signage highlighting the mission of NFCC. Thrift Shop operations provide sustainable income to support NFCC programs.

The NFCC Thrift Shop was formerly known as The Community Clothes Closet (CCC). It opened in 1971 in partnership with six North Fulton churches. In 1991 CCC became part of the NFCC family. The Thrift Shop operates with a small staff and hundreds of volunteers, some of whom have volunteered for decades, according to NFCC's Vonda Marlborough.
NFCC Executive Director Barbara Duffy said, “The goal of this renovation is to increase revenue and brand awareness. The store will be more spacious, more organized and the check out process more efficient. The addition of large photos of NFCC programs and participants displayed along the upper walls combined with quotes from program participants will provide all who enter our Thrift Shop, including shoppers, donors, supporters and the families we support, insight into NFCC’s mission of building self-sufficiency and preventing homelessness and hunger in our community by providing emergency assistance and enrichment programs.”
Thrift Shop Manager Bebe Nicholson said, “This project has energized our staff and volunteers and our regular shoppers are joining in the excitement. We invite everyone to come by and check out our new look.” The Thrift Shop is open seven days a week to the public looking for great values and surprise bargains. Hours are Monday through Saturday 10am to 8pm and Sunday 1pm to 6pm.
The Thrift Shop re-opened Saturday, Feb. 23, and plans an official opening on Friday, March 1.
