VOLUNTEERING HAS ITS BENEFITS!
Volunteering at the sale is easy and in exchange for your time, you get to shop early for the best bargains
AND save commission! It is well worth it!

Sale Day Volunteer Roles
The clothing sales wouldn’t be successful without hours and hours of dedicated volunteers!
Each volunteer will be assigned a task.
Early Shopping Draw: Sell tickets for the chance to win early shopping. The winners of this draw will get to shop with members at 8:00. Volunteers assigned to this duty will need to be finished shopping and bechecked out by 7:45.
Door: Two volunteers will be assigned to collect admission ($2).
Detagger: Removes clothing sale tags from items being purchased, stacks the tags and hands them to the cashier.
Bagger: As the detagger removes the tags, the bagger places items in bags provided by POMBA.
Cashier: The cashier positions are assigned to volunteers with previous cashier experience, as this is a fast paced job. The cashier scans the tags and completes the transaction.
Change Your Mind / Sale Floor: The Change Your Mind section is a very busy area. This is the area where shoppers can bring their items and spread them out on the table to take a closer look and decide what they want to keep. Volunteers who are working this area are basically putting clothing and other items back in their proper places. An item that is not in the correct place is not likely to sell. Change Your Mind / Sale Floor volunteers monitor washrooms / back room, and rearrange items as the sale progresses (i.e. – move unsold large items to a more prominent area). They also keep an eye out for shoplifting or tag switching and notify police officers.
