This job can be done sitting or standing. Involves checking for scratches and cleaning the product before pricing and stocking the shelves.

BOOKS – ADULT & CHILDRENS
This department is suited for those with a love of books/reading and literature. The pricing is relatively standardized. Some light lifting and bending to classify books and stock the shelves is required.

Full interaction with the public allows our cashiers and packers to enjoy being the face of the New to You. Training includes working the new POS registers, although prior retail experience can speed up the initial training.

CAMERAS/ACCESSORIES
Knowledge of cameras and accessories will go a long way in checking working condition and pricing these items.

CLOTHING and ACCESSORIES

Sometimes your shift will be full of treasures, sometimes not so much but ALL soft textiles are recycled.
