2nd Avenue Value Stores, the thrift chain dedicated to bringing customers the best value in clothing, household goods, and collectables, will reveal an all-new floor plan that caters to customer needs by providing the ultimate thrift shopping experience. The new store, which will serve as a prototype for future 2nd Avenue stores, will be unveiled this summer in Alexandria, VA.
This beautiful new thrift store has been intentionally designed with every single detail selected to maximize the customer experience. The store’s floor plan represents an entirely new era for 2nd Avenue stores, one that puts purposeful, customer-focused, design at the forefront and is unlike any thrift store open to consumers today. While most discount stores are cluttered and nearly impossible to navigate, the design of the 2nd Ave Alexandria store neatly organizes and segments each department for easier shopping, making customers’ experience efficient, enjoyable, and relaxing. The Alexandria store includes:
- Educational library lounge: Allowing shoppers to relax while they shop for their next novel
- Hands-on kids-only play space: Offering children their own interactive play experience in the toy department
- Eye catching, well organized merchandise displays: Mirroring those found in department stores
- Expedited check out: Multiple cashiers will ensure you can make your purchases quickly and conveniently using cash, credit or Apple Pay®
“With 10 stores throughout the Mid-Atlantic area, we wanted to make a change with the Alexandria store that we knew would exceed our shoppers’ expectations and set the tone for a new generation of 2nd Avenue stores,” says Tony Peressini, Chief Executive Officer of 2nd Ave Value Stores. “After laboring over plans and supervising design and construction, we couldn’t be more proud of this store and look forward to seeing the reaction of our customers on May 14. It is possible for discount shopping to be easy, fun, and efficient all at once, and that’s what we’ve done here.”
Since 1959, 2nd Ave Value Stores has been dedicated to providing customers with the best in discount retail, while simultaneously being a longstanding, contributing member of each of the communities it belongs to. 2nd Ave has a life-long relationship with leading national charitable organizations, and has raised millions of dollars for these organizations by purchasing the stores’ merchandise through the charities’ collection efforts.
Customers shopping the Alexandria store will have the exclusive opportunity to benefit from the 2nd Avenue Rewards program (valid only at the Alexandria location). Customers will receive one point for each dollar spent and upon reaching 150 points, will be awarded $10 to their 2nd Avenue loyalty card for future purchases. Customers must register their loyalty card on the 2nd Avenue website where they can also view their online account, point totals, rewards and purchase details. Every Alexandria customer that enrolls in the loyalty program will be awarded 50 points to their card upon card registration and first purchase. Customers also have the option to pay for their merchandise using Apple Pay.
