Over 200 dedicated volunteers at Nova take care of the day to day operations of our five West Island thrift shops. Some are behind the scenes and are involved in the preparation, pricing and restocking of our shelves. Others attend more directly to the customers’ needs, helping them find the products they’re looking for and then checking them out at the cash.
On Saturday, the first day of our May half-price sale, I was thrilled to meet N, a lovely young woman who apparently comes into our Ste. Anne boutique regularly. Since my regular shift is Friday, I had not seen her before.
