Dear Valued Customers,

We have important updates to share with you regarding The Arc of Bismarck Thrift Store. Firstly, we regret to inform you that due to unforeseen staffing issues, we will temporarily close our store on Mondays, starting August 1, 2023. We understand this may cause inconvenience and apologize for disrupting your shopping routine.

Secondly, we want to notify you about an upcoming change in our pricing. Effective August 1st, we will implement slight price adjustments on select items in our thrift store. These adjustments have become necessary to account for several factors, including rising operational costs and ensuring the sustainability of our organization.

Given these changes, we invite you to consider volunteering at The Arc of Bismarck. We value our community’s involvement, and your time and support can make a significant difference. By volunteering, you will contribute to our mission, gain a fulfilling experience, and connect with others who share your passion for making a positive impact.

Many volunteer opportunities are available, including assisting store operations, organizing donations, providing customer service, and participating in community outreach initiatives. We would be thrilled to have you on our volunteer team if you have a few hours to spare or would like to commit regularly.

Please visit our website at to learn more about volunteer opportunities and how you can get involved. We appreciate your consideration and look forward to welcoming you as a valued volunteer community member.

While our thrift store will be closed on Mondays, we will continue operating during regular hours from Tuesday to Saturday. We understand that Mondays may only sometimes be convenient for some, but we encourage you to visit us during our opening hours throughout the rest of the week.

We express our deepest gratitude for your continued support and understanding during this transitional period. Your loyalty means the world to us, and we genuinely appreciate your ongoing support for our mission at The Arc of Bismarck.
