COVID-19 Update from our Director, Cheri McCutchen:

To our Blessing Barn customers and supporters,

Although The Blessing Barn has been deemed essential since the beginning of the shutdown, we chose to close until we could ensure practices that provided for staff and guest safety. We have had time to make some safety modifications and have chosen to reopen in a modified fashion because many of our customers cannot afford Target or Walmart and have come to rely on us for their essential needs. Many have partnered with our Compassion Crisis Center for free shopping. Although we have offered limited hours for this we realize that to do our best we must reopen. Please read below our soft reopening modifications:


Here are our guidelines for our modified soft reopening. We want you to follow the same practices you follow at Target or the grocery store.


  1. Customers must follow all in-store safety signage or may be asked to leave
  2. Customers will be asked to wear masks/face covering or will be denied entry
  3. Customers must maintain social distancing and follow all safety signage
  4. Customers will be asked to refrain from using our community room for social gathering
  5. Customers will be asked to wait outside if our store’s customer count exceeds safe distancing opportunities
  6. Customers are asked to touch only those items they are considering purchasing


*OPENING DETAILS*: We will be open to the public beginning Wednesday, 5/20 with the following hours:
Monday – Saturday: 10am – 4pm


*CONTACTLESS PICKUP*: We are still offering CONTACTLESS CURBSIDE PICK UP Monday – Saturday: 10am – 4pm. Please call (508) 634-2276 upon arrival with your purchase/order number.


*DONATIONS*: We’ll continue to do all donations BY APPOINTMENT on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Please email us here to set up your drop off. Due to high volume we are booking at least one – two weeks in advance for boxed/bagged/binned donations. Adult summer clothing and children/infant summer/fall clothing are now being accepted. Please be sure linen donations are freshly laundered and placed in plastic bags before drop off.


We can’t wait to see you and we appreciate your patience during this time! Email or private message us with any questions. Thanks you!
