Diversity Thrift is planning its return to the Fan with a new store at 2219 W. Main St. coined “DT2.” DT2 will accept clothing, housewares, music, books, and video. The original location on Sherwood Avenue will continue to house larger items like furniture.
The new store will serve shoppers within both the Fan and VCU communities. Thrift store operations are a large funding source of the Gay Community Center of Richmond.
“We have a lot of new programming for senior LGBT people and young adults,” GCCR president Jay Squires says. ”This is the way to get the funding together with individual support to make these programs happen.”
