Buy The Bag

Buy The Bag

On December 1, 2012, Housing Works opens its brand new and exciting Buy the Bag shop! Customers pay $25 and get a bag to fill up with contemporary, designer and vintage apparel – some in need of a little TLC. Known as “thrifter’s heaven” by savvy shoppers, bloggers and media, including The New York Times and The Today Show, Buy the Bag is not your typical retail experience and we’re looking for a few good volunteers up to the task.

We seek to provide customers with the same level of service that we are known for at our twelve thrift shops, and are looking for hard working, dedicated people to call this new shop their volunteer home. Volunteers at Buy the Bag will assist our staff by:

• Providing excellent customer service throughout the shop
• Maintaining the neatness and cleanliness of the sales floor
• Ringing purchases at the register
• Talking to customers about Housing Works’ fight to end HIV/AIDS and Homelessness

The shop is located at 159 28th Street Brooklyn, NY 11232, click the map on the right for directions.

Apply now to become a part of this exciting new team, we can’t wait to hear from you!
