New Safety Measures for Shoppers

The GFN store is re-opening and welcomes you back to shop for your family’s clothing needs.
We are following government protocols for safety and encourage you to read the guidelines below before coming to the store.

To allow for cleaning and disinfecting between store openings, the store will now be open on Wednesday evenings and Friday mornings

Only 3 shoppers will be allowed in the store at the same time (one per family) No children will be allowed in the store. Come prepared to shop for your family.
Shopping time will be limited to 20 minutes for each group of 3. The last group will be admitted 20 minutes before closing.

Shoppers are required to wear a mask – ‘no mask, no entry’. Please bring your own mask when you come to the store.

You will be required to sign a waiver and declare that you meet the requirements set by the Government before you enter the store.

The bathrooms will be closed and there is no trying clothing on. So, think ahead of time about sizes, colours and the type of clothing your family needs the most right now.

If you want to donate clothing while you’re at the store, come to the back door and drop it into the bin. We are taking Fall/Winter clothing only at this time.

We’re aware that the new rules can be frustrating for you and for us as well. However, your safety and the safety of our volunteers is our main concern. We ask that you demonstrate care and respect for our volunteers and fellow shoppers while you are in the store. We anticipate a number of shoppers and will have waiting stations posted on the sidewalk outside the Southside church. Please stand at a station and be patient, we will be serving people as quickly and safely as we can.

Shop

GFN started in 2009 as an outreach to women in transition who needed clothing for themselves and their children, but who didn’t have the resources to shop in the mall. We wanted to give women a place where they could feel welcomed, valued and comfortable, while getting the clothes their families need. GFN is a unique Southside community service where shoppers have the opportunity to be part of helping the community, while helping themselves; it’s a safe place to sit with a cup of coffee, share your challenges, learn work place skills, make new friends and return the blessing to others in the community. Shoppers can browse, choose what they need, knowing that we won’t charge, so they can save their money for other living expenses.

Volunteer

The mission of the Goods For Nothing store is to bless Milton families with good quality women, children’s and men’s clothing and shoes, at no cost to them. Shoppers are given the opportunity to volunteer their time in the store in exchange for learning new skills, getting work experience and being given priority-shopping opportunities. Volunteers learn to: help process and manage inventory, create displays, sort clothes, clean up and help customers find that perfect ‘something’. They also learn to work on a team and practice language skills to build their workplace confidence.

Donate

We greatly appreciate the Milton community for supporting the Goods for Nothing store with generous donations of clean, gently used, good quality clothing for over 9 years! If you’d like to donate, here’s what we need:

  • Seasonal Clothing (currently Fall & Winter)
  • Women’s casual and business clothing
  • Infant clothing
  • Children’s school clothes
  • Men’s work wear
  • Shoes for the whole family
  • Gift card donations for food

Donations can be dropped off at 200 Main St. E. Milton during store opening times. There will be a bin for no-contact drop-off.
