What is NEW for 2018?

1) Barter Breakdown/sorting shift - For 2018 we will be adding a barter breakdown shift.  This shift will be a 5 hour shift and will qualify you for an 8 hour pass.  This shift can not be combined with any additional shift for a higher pass.  If tyou are only shiging up for one shift and you choose this one you will get an 8 hour pass.  

2) We will have a drop zone drop off and be cahnging the hours of drop off since it will not take as long to drop off with zones.  This will be more of a drop and go drop off and will help us with orgainzing.  You will now arrive at drop off, check in and bring your items to the drop zones which are labeld with categories.  Your clothing and shoes will no longer be inspected while you wait, instead we will hold your unaccepted items until pick up.  Please click here for more info about drop zones.

Hey bargain shoppers! Thanks so much for your interest in JBF Chattanooga.  As a mother of 2 growing children I understand how fast they need everything and how expensive it can be on your family.  JBF is designed to help parents get what they will need for their family for the upcoming season, at a fraction of what you would pay retail, and make a little extra cleaning out those gently loved items your family has outgrown.  We also love to help families that are in need and give back to the community by donating many unsold items to Bethel Bible Village.  Your donations help this community and we are grateful for your generosity!
