Arc's Value Village Thrift Store
Arc's Value Village is a nonprofit thrift store helping people with intellectual and and developmental disabilities throughout the state of Minnesota. They have 3 store locations throughout the Twin Cities; Bloomington, Richfield and New Hope. Unlike most thrift stores, Arc actually offers a FREE personal shopping service! Whether you love thrifted finds, but hate having to dig through everything or if you're someone that just doesn't have time to thrift, Sarah and I can! Not only do you not have to do the digging yourself, but you also get to work with a professional stylist! Did I mention that it's FREE?!
Due to the pandemic, Sarah and I are offering virtual sessions (45-50 minutes) or we can do it in-person (1 hour), social distanced of course. Until further notice, the fitting rooms are closed, but if you wear something form fitting you can try try on over them in front of the mirrors. We are now also offering shipping! Whether you're located in our neighboring state of Wisconsin or across the country in California, we can do a virtual session with anyone nationwide and ship it off to you within a week after your appointment.
So what is the difference between this free thrifting appointment and our regular appointments through MH? The Arc appointments are shorter and are more focused on one-off shopping while our appointments with MH goes further into the experience where it's more of a journey, including working from within your closet. However, Arc personal shopping clients do receive a one time discount on a few of our services with MH which can be redeemed within 60 days after your Arc appointment.
With all that being said, here are all the things Arc!
