The new Savers store in Crestwood will bring approximately 50 jobs into the city, according to a news release from the company. Those interested in remaining management and team member positions can apply on the Savers website.
The for-profit retailer of secondhand clothing and home goods is tentatively scheduled to open Feb. 21. Residents can now drop off their donations at the store.
The chain donates money to local non-profit partners for every item donated to stores. Donations to the Crestwood store will benefit Vietnam Veterans of America. The non-profit will also receive money for items donated directly to them through their home pick-up service, according to a release from Savers.
“When we open a store in a new market, we always aim to form partnerships with organizations that are strong supporters of the local community. The first St. Louis-area Savers, located in Ellisville, also partners with the Vietnam Veterans of America, so we were eager to continue this wonderful relationship and help them bring even more support to veterans in the area," District Manager Rick Sturdivant said.
