Big Sale Set for Last First Saturday Before Summer Break at Fort Gordon Thrift Shop

The Fort Gordon Thrift Shop is preparing for the last First Saturday before summer with a 50-percent off sale. The shopping event on May 3 runs from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and features 50-percent off Thrift Shop-owned clothing and shoes. Military clothing is excluded.

“First Saturday is taking a break until October 4, 2014, so we are eager to give people the big savings on summer clothes and shoes they need now,” said Stephanie Lainez, manager of the Fort Gordon Thrift Shop.

Throughout the summer the Thrift Shop will keep its normal Tuesday and Thursday hours, but Lainez said it will close for staff and volunteer holidays during the entire month of July.

​“Our volunteers work so hard throughout the year,” said Lainez. “Taking July off helps us all refresh and renew for a great fall season.”

The Fort Gordon Thrift Shop is one of the largest thrift and consignments stores in the Central Savannah River Area. Its three large, well-organized and bright buildings feature gently-used furniture, clothing, and toys, all offered tax-free. Civilian or military, everyone is welcome to shop at the Thrift Shop.

Operated by the Fort Gordon Spouses’ & Civilians’ Club, the shop is open every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the First Saturday of each month (October through May) from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Donations are accepted during business hours as well as at the donation bin located next to the shop. DOD cardholders may consign items every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and First Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to noon.

The Thrift Shop is located in Building 39102 behind the Exchange in the Brems Barracks near Avenue of the States and 40th Street.
Profits from the Thrift Shop go toward annual scholarships and grants for community organizations and military dependents.

The Fort Gordon Spouses’ & Civilians’ Club is an active part of the Fort Gordon community that leads service projects, operates the Thrift Shop and provides volunteer opportunities, special events and activities. A private nonprofit organization, the club is not affiliated with Fort Gordon or the U.S. Army.
