The Fort St. John Thrift Shop receives and sells used clothing, housewares, books, hardware, small furniture and small appliances, with all proceeds designated to support the relief, development, social justice and peace work of Mennonite Central Committee. Thrift Shops make a valuable contribution to good stewardship and a healthy environment by recycling items that might otherwise be thrown away. In addition, they provide a sense of community to volunteers and the people we serve through social interaction in a caring community.
The Shop Manager will be responsible for the daily operation of the thrift shop from receiving to the retail floor, promoting and implementing MCC Thrift Shop best practices throughout the Shop.

The Shop Manager will demonstrate servant leadership to staff, volunteers, customers and donors in a manner that reflects Christian respect and integrity. The Manager reports to the MCC BC Thrift Shop Director and works with the Shop Committee.
The Shop Manager is expected to work on a rotating schedule, including Saturdays and some evenings when necessary.
