Now that Blessingdales has re-opened its doors to the public, GSOL’s Executive Director Dan Watkins wants to keep it that way! Dan and his Blessingdales crew are going above and beyond to ensure the cleanliness and safety of the resale staff, store, and its donated items. Along with the store’s usual daily disinfectant of all carts, door hands, and switches, Blessingdales has also invested in a new ionized salt water mister.
This new handheld machine allows for the store and all of its contents to be completely sanitized every night. It contains an ionized salt water solution that, when sprayed on the donated items, sanitizes on contact. This ensures that all new items, along with the items being shopped daily, are deep cleaned each and every day!
Watkins states, “I just want our customers to rest assured we not only follow all guidelines given to us, but we also exceed them for our customers’ shopping protection.” Blessingdales and God’s Shelter of Love have been blessed with support from the Decatur community and continue to provide help and hope to those in need.
Following the local and state recommended CDC safety guidelines is just the minimum when it comes to the effort that Decatur’s own Blessingdales Thrift Shop is making to ensure that its customers have the best post-quarantine shopping experience possible!
