Great Stuff wins "Best of Delaware" and Looks to Fall Fashions
The Delaware Breast
Cancer Coalition is very pleased to announce that its resale shop,Great Stuff Savvy Resale, was named “Best Resale Shop” by Delaware Today Magazine in their annual “Best
of Delaware” issue.The resale shop
opened in October of 2010 and is located in North Wilmington in the Talleyville
Center on Concord Pike.
“We are so thrilled to receive
this honor,” said general manager Dale Maahs.“We’ve only been in business for just shy of two years and the support
that we have received is phenomenal.”Maahs is joined by her assistant manager Trish Tompkins and over 50
volunteers who work in the shop.“The
volunteers at Great Stuff are the best.They are such an important piece of the success of the shop.They provide excellent customer service and
help with tasks like window displays, tagging items, merchandising, and more.
They are such a strong team.” Many Great Stuff volunteers are breast cancer survivors themselves and often lend a compassionate ear to those somehow impacted by breast cancer.
Some Great Stuff volunteers at Best of Delaware Party
A few members of the
Great Stuff team attended the Best of
Delaware Party on July 26 at Dover Downs where they joined some of the best
businesses in Delaware.This event provided
Great Stuff with an opportunity to introduce new people to the resale shop and
let them know how they can help.“We are
always looking for donations of gently used upscale clothing, handbags and
accessories, footwear, home accents and furniture,” said Maahs.Click here for a donation flyer with more
information on how to donate to Great Stuff.
By donating items or
shopping at Great Stuff, you can make an impact on the local fight against
breast cancer.“All of our net proceeds
benefit DBCC’s local programs and services. Everything stays right here in the community.”Last year, Great Stuff presented DBCC with a
check for $40,000 in its first year of business.
