SMCo Thrift National Training Conference
From March 6th to 8th, SMCo Thrift will host its next thrift conference in Knoxville, TN. The National Training Conference is focused on equipping leaders in the industry to Do Thrift Better. Principles, strategies, and tools that proved successful in the 150+ locations where the SMCo Thrift team has assisted will be shared.
Expect to hear about, and then see, the interconnected elements within a thrift operation. You learn about topics such as receiving donations, sorting, and pricing individual items to retail sales. Directors, managers, and other leaders will walk away with practical steps to implement at existing thrift operations to grow your social enterprise.
Every conference is unique because of the people who attend. We recognize the value of different viewpoints so come prepared to share your challenges as well as your successes. While no thrift store is exactly the same, we do believe that certain strategies can be deployed to encourage success. No matter the size of your thrift operation, we are certain that this conference can benefit you.
The SMCo Thrift team works with you to grow your organization. With decades of collective experience managing thrift stores, we can share our insights as you open new locations, expand your donation base, streamline your processing, create a memorable customer experience, and everything in between.
