Did you ever wonder how all our new merchandise gets out on the shelves of the thrift shop? You walk in the door at 10 am on a Wednesday morning, and – all these things you didn’t see the week before are there! It seems like magic!

Well, we’re not in a Disney movie, and no one waved a magic wand. Little singing woodland creatures didn’t re-stock our shelves overnight. No – the answer is: Monday!That’s right – Monday! Every Monday morning, a group of dedicated ALI volunteers show up at the thrift shop around 9:30 am. We pull unsold, outdated items off the shelves. We dust the shelves and polish the glass cases, And then – we re-stock! New items go out, and the shelves fill up again. The whole process takes us three to four hours. And we repeat this every Monday, just to make sure our shoppers have the best selection of gently-used merchandise in Irvine!

The next time you drive by our shop, think about all the activity that goes on behind the scenes on Monday morning. Then be sure to stop in on Wednesday to see the results of Monday’s work!
