Local charitable shop reopens

GRAFTON—While many folks have been out of a job due to the Coronavirus pandemic, they have been hard at work, ridding their homes of gently used items that they no longer utilize.

For some, finding somewhere to take their previously loved belongings can be a daunting task, but one local resale shop is gladly accepting donations.

After closing their doors for a short period of time the Nu2U Thrift Shop, located at the Church of the Good Shepherd on Lucas Dairy Road, has reopened and is looking for items to once again stock their supplies.

Offering everything from clothing to home décor, the shop has something for everyone.

When visiting the store, shoppers might be pleasantly surprised at the current inventory. There, patrons will find clothing for children, men and women in various sizes, as well as a selection of toys and books.

If you’re looking to spruce up your current living space, Nu2U offers a variety of home décor items, as well as home essentials including cookware, glassware, linens and the like.

With the holiday season quickly approaching, individuals may be looking for decorations to make their homes festive and fun. The folks at Nu2U have shared that they also have a selection of seasonal decorations.

The friendly folks at Nu2U Thrift Shop have been serving the community since 1985, when church member, Betty Hayhurst, went west to visit her family, and attended their church where she saw this room masked “The NU2U Shop” and was intrigued. She learned the purpose, the organization and how it was managed. 

Impressed with the mission of that shop, she came back to her home church and explained it to the ladies there. They were sold on the idea and thus began the NU2U Shop.

The NU2U is operated by the ladies of the church who donate their time.  Its purpose has always been that all of the money received from the sale of donated items is used for the needy of the counties. No money is used in the support of the church.

The shop is now in its 35th year of operation. Shoppers may stop by on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and noon to shop the wonderful inventory, and as always, the shop is gladly accepting donations of items from the community.
