Frequently Asked Questions
Why are some items so cheap and others more expensive? As a resale store, shouldn't everything be a bargain?
At MAM, we have a responsibility to our store donors to receive the best possible prices for their donations. We have a team of volunteers who take the time to research items to ensure they are priced competitively.
For shoppers, we offer a daily specials, and a quarterly sale, where almost everything is 50% off! To find out about our specials and upcoming sales, sign up on our email list, or check our Facebook page.
Proceeds from the MAM Resale Store make up about 1/3 of MAM's operating budget, allowing us to continue programs that help thousands of local families each year to stay in their homes, stay healthy, and learn skills to become more independent.
