Volunteers assist donors, price and sort merchandise, create displays, operate the cash register and provide customer service on the sales floor.

HistoryThe thrift store at 122 Junction Road on Madison’ s west side opened in August of 2006. The success of this location and inquiries from our Madison east customers prompted us to open a second store in June 2010 at 1733 Thierer Road. The Agrace HospiceCare Thrift Store began as a place for patients and families to give back to Agrace HospiceCare, Inc. Families often wanted to gift us furniture, collectibles and special items, and the thrift store gave us a means to accept these donations and generate sales. Revenue from the sale of merchandise in the Thrift Stores helps patients and families served by Agrace HospiceCare Inc.
