What is the name of your business Lydia's Clothes Closet, Inc.

How long have you been in business? The original Lydia's opened on June 22, 2013. However, recent changes to the location of the store had us close, relocate and reopen Sept. 30, 2017. 

Tell us about your ideal customer. Everyone!!  Lydia's is a non-profit, thrift store with everything from household items to clothes, and we are located right on main street. We are completely staffed by volunteers, and the profit made from sales go directly back into the store and to help those in need.  

Tell us something unique or special about your business. Lydia's is about helping the community and is
completely staffed by volunteers who find it rewarding to donate their time to a great cause.  Since opening at the end of September, Lydia's has helped a family affected by a house fire and has given over $650.00 worth of clothes and household goods to those who use Compassion Cupboard (our local food bank).  Lydia's is also working with our local high school students to foster a spirit of helping those in need by giving back to your community.

What is your favorite thing about Strasburg? The PEOPLE!! There are so many people with amazing hearts in Strasburg. If it weren't for them, Lydia's and our mission would not be a reality.  To those who support us through donations, to our volunteers, and to those who have donated to Lydia's - we owe a huge "thank you!"

Where is your favorite place to eat out and why? We have so many volunteers we could not pick just one restaurant but, we all agree that choosing a local restaurant and supporting our small business owners here in Strasburg is the best choice.

Tell us a funny story about your business. We have many heartfelt stories at Lydia's which put a smile on the face of everyone involved. To hear about the fun times of the volunteers, you will have to stop by the store and chat in person. (smile)
