If you’re looking to snag some deals on clothing or furniture and want to give back to the Christian community in the process, head down to JC Thrift on New Street in downtown Macon.
JC Thrift, standing for Jesus Christ, is a second-hand store that aims to offer affordable, gently-used clothing and furniture to the Macon community, all while operating under Christian values and practices.
“Jesus Christ Thrift Store is a family owned business, based on Christian values. The idea behind this store is not for personal gain, but created to bless those in need,” owner and operator Chad Hickman said.
The store sells everything from jeans to suits to furniture and more, and all at low prices. T-shirts can be priced as low as $1, dress shirts up to $2 and pants between $2-$3 a piece.
But what JC Thrift is really known for is its diverse collection of brand new sports team jerseys and snapback hats. The walls of JC Thrift are lined with jerseys and hats from the Atlanta Falcons, the Dallas Cowboys and dozens of other sports teams from across the nation. Jerseys sell for $50 apiece and hats go for $10.
“We have some of the lowest-priced sport jerseys and hats to get [Mercer students] prepared when they want to get away from the books and have fun at a sports event,” Hickman said.
If your closest is already too full and you’re looking for a way to unload some of those unwanted items, JC Thrift also accepts donations of all kinds.
The store is located at 192 New St. and is open from 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
“We want to be a light for the downtown community and want to continue to serve and grow for many years to come. We want to thank all our customers that are a part of us growing and [we] look forward to the future ones,” Hickman said.
