WACO, TX — In keeping with Governor Greg Abbott’s guidelines for re-opening of retail operations, Caritas of Waco will open its two Thrift Stores on a limited basis starting on Wednesday, May 6th.

On that day, “Hidden Treasures” Bosque at 3912 Bosque Blvd. in Waco will be open for customers from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. “Hidden Treasures” Bellmead at 3016 Bellmead Drive will have operating hours of 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Both stores will operate Wednesday through Saturday using these hours.

There will be limitations placed on the number of customers who can be in the store at one time. For the Bosque Hidden Treasures, up to 12 customers will be allowed in the store at one time, and for Bellmead, the limit will be 10 customers.

Customers are strongly encouraged to wear face masks while in the store, and staff will enforce social distancing.

A line leading to the check-out register will be marked on the floor to designate social distancing factors. Restrooms will not be available to customers at either store.

Staff may periodically close the stores briefly to allow an opportunity to disinfect shopping carts, counters, doors, and other surfaces to protect the health of customers and store personnel.

All sales will be final.

Donations of clothing and household goods will not be accepted, and donation pick-ups will not be scheduled until further notice.

The Caritas Thrift Stores are an important feature of the organization’s service to the community, and proceeds from sales help support its emergency assistance programs.
