How can I involve my volunteers in marketing my non-profit thrift store?


I manage a thrift store for a non-profit. We receive lots of donations and sales have been increasing, but I still need to increase my customer base and turn over merchandise more quickly. Any suggestions for involving my store volunteers in marketing the store?

    I LOVE this idea! Our store is unfortunately in an iffy area so I'd hesitate to do an after-hours nighttime event, but I could definitely do a Saturday afternoon event since we close early on Saturdays.

    Oooh good idea! We use Facebook a lot, but I definitely have not been engaging my volunteers in sharing our posts as much as I could. This could defnitely help!

    THere are definitely some thrift stores that do this, and we could do it in a way that doesn't compromise our non-profit status - my supervisor and I were actually discussing soemthing somewhat similar to this earlier today.
