Welcome to Surfside PX
Surfside PX is a non-profit thrift store whose mission is to help out Disabled Veterans.
All merchandise is donated by folks like you. We cannot purchase items for resale or accept items on consignment without jeopardizing our non-profit status. Because we are a non-profit organization, we are not required to charge the South Carolina / Horry County 8% sales tax!
So not only can you get quality items at great prices when you shop with us, you save again when you do not have to add a sales tax!
100% of the benefits from the proceeds of all sales are ear-marked for our chosen three Charities whose mission statement mirrors ours: Helping Disabled Veterans
Donate, Shop and Volunteer with us and Never forget to thank Veterans for our wonderful US-way of life!

February 2018 Newsletter
Please remember to keep your packaging materials to donate to the PX. That helps us lower shipping costs for our eBay store. The eBay stats for 2017 told us that the PX is among the top 10% of eBay Sellers in Dolls and Bears YEAH!!! Thanks to Evelyn and Kathy, sales continue to be strong although we did have a run in with a scammer. Fortunately, PayPal has given us back the funds because we were covered by their Seller's protection plan. YEAH PayPal ! Just in time for our quarterly checks to our Three Charities benefiting Disabled Veterans.
The PX is now open three days per week: Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 10 am to 4 pm.
Our WEEKLY indoor sidewalk sale is continuing to be a success, bringing in new faces all the time.
As you may know by now, items that are ALWAYS on sale (because of the sheer volume of donations for those types of items) are Cookware, Dishware and Linen. So on a rotating basis for the one day each week on THURSDAYs, we slash prices on different categories of items. Check the items on sale every week as they will be posted here as well as on Craig’s List.
Veterans, receive an additional 10% discount on total purchases with proper id, as our thank you for your service to our nation.
Alan tackled the tools department and folks have been getting great buys out of there.
Mary Beth is back from her health leave and is valiantly working in our Arts and Crafts Department. Our latest new volunteer and one of our very first donors Audrey, has been dusting away, making displays and relocating items so Danielle cannot find them anymore. Thank you Audrey for your tenacity, our store is looking AMAZING !!!
Alan is continuing with the tools and that department is also seeing great sales. He is also re-conditioning furniture items and constantly organizing the storage area. Thanks to both Audrey and Alan, the positive feedback from customers is lifting everyone’s spirits.
Scott and Danielle are so very grateful for all the help received this past year from Alan, Robert, Ann, Evelyn, Brenda, Mary Beth, Edie and Bill. We are now so organized people have been complimenting us on the store!
The PX now has a Brokerage account. This means that should you, or any one you know, want to gift the PX stocks/bonds, we will be able to accept them and grow the PX's investment portfolio. Thank you Dick for your generous gift of stocks, the PX is in better financial shape thanks to you.
We would love to get more folks involved in our mission. So, if you personally are thinking of doing some volunteering work, please join us. We have loads to do at all levels of the organization and if you want to keep active and engaged, we surely could use your help and special talents in meeting our mission of raising funds for Disabled Vets.
Thank you All for being part of Surfside PX's extended family and please always remember to thank Veterans for our freedoms and wonderful US-way of life!
