On September 13, 2010, ditto was officially opened with a ribbon cutting and celebration of God’s goodness in providing the location, the store director, the many volunteers and a strong supporting community of donors as well as customers.
Located in a 13,000 square foot completely renovated warehouse and truck repair center at 965 Belmont Ave, North Haledon, New Jersey, ditto caters to buyers of gently-used quality clothing for men, women and children, furniture, toys, appliances, sporting goods, books and household items. All items are donated and carefully screened by diligent volunteers for quality before they are tastefully displayed and competitively priced. Many items are new and never used, while other items are only slightly used.
Ditto recently expanded by adding a separate furniture department and created a new organized sorting area for processing donations.
The store is currently managed by 4 part-time managers which are in-turn supported by a cadre of men and women volunteers who perform a variety of tasks including examining incoming items, sorting inventory, stocking the store with new items, providing customer service and serving as cashiers. Volunteers also provide bookkeeping services and refinishing of damaged furniture. Our volunteers include high school students performing community service hours to seniors from the Holland Christian Home in North Haledon and all ages in between.
The organization is managed by a board of managers appointed by the parent organization, The Foundation for Eastern Christian School, which approves all store policies.
ditto is open 5 days a week, generally from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm except for Saturdays when the store closes at 4:00 pm. Hours may vary during certain seasons, so be sure to check our website for current hours and special events. ditto is closed on Sundays, Mondays and major holidays. Donations continue to be received from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Mondays. There is ample off street parking for over 50 cars.
All sales proceeds, after adjusting for expenses, are primarily donated to Eastern Christian School with a goal of also donating a portion of the profits to other local charities and community organizations.
ditto is always looking for clean, quality donations. All donations received by ditto which are deemed to be of a quality less than the standards we have developed, will be donated to local charities who serve the poor and homeless in our general area.
ditto is always is in need of new volunteers too! Just a few hours a month makes a difference!
We look forward to seeing you at ditto!
ditto is a ministry of Eastern Christian School.
