What To Expect
On September 27th and 28th, SMCo Thrift will host its next event focused on equipping leaders in the thrift industry to Do Thrift Better. Principles, strategies and tools proved successful in the 150+ locations where the SMCo Thrift team has assisted will be shared.
What You'll Learn
Expect to hear about, and then see, the interconnected elements within a thrift operation – such as receiving donations, sorting & pricing individual items to retail sales. The two days will include “lecture style” learning combined with interaction in-person hands on learning implementing the different thrift strategies and concepts. Directors, managers and other leaders will walk away with practical steps to implement at existing thrift operations to grow your social enterprise.
Be Prepared to Participate
Every conference is unique because of the people who attend. We recognize the value of different viewpoints so come prepared to share your challenges as well as your successes. Recent attendees have ranged from west and east coasts as well as places in between. They represented organizations with no stores to more than a dozen, with existing stores generating less than $25K per month to over $125K per month.
