ReSOURCE’s Response to Coronavirus

*Update 8/11/2021

The latest update from the CDC is that Chittenden County (our Burlington & Williston stores) has moved from “substantial” to “high” level of community transmission and Washington and Lamoille Counties (our Barre and Hyde Park stores) is now listed as “substantial”. Therefore, ReSOURCE is extending temporary indoor masking to all four stores for staff and customers and volunteers.

All ReSOURCE stores are open with limited customer capacity. Current hours are:


Barre: Tuesday – Saturday, 10AM – 4PM

Hyde Park: Tuesday – Saturday, 9AM – 5PM

Burlington: Tuesday – Saturday, 10AM – 5PM

Williston: Monday – Saturday, 10AM – 6PM, Sunday – 10AM – 5PM


*Update 5/18:

Starting this week, the week of 5.18.20, ReSOURCE’s thrift stores will reopen with limited customer capacity. New hours are:


Barre: Tuesday – Saturday, 9AM – 5PM

Hyde Park: Tuesday – Saturday, 9AM – 5PM

Burlington: Tuesday – Saturday, 10AM – 5PM

Williston: will reopen next week, 5.25.20


*Update 3/31: 

In support of the Nation’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID 19, ReSOURCE will close our four reuse store locations to foot traffic, effective immediately.


We remain available to serve you and Vermonters in need by sharing offers and information through our website, social media, daily deals newsletters, and beginning today through ReSOURCE personal shoppers.
It’s easy, just reach out to let us know what you need, and we’ll search our inventory for the perfect item for you. All payment and pick up will be contact-free at our store curbside, Monday through Friday.

Item donations are still welcome. Call a ReSOURCE store near you for arrangements.

Dear ReSOURCE Customer,

As the situation around COVID-19 (coronavirus) evolves, we want to assure you ReSOURCE is taking steps to maintain a safe environment for our customers, job skills trainees, volunteers, and staff. We are carefully monitoring CDC Guidelines and are also following the lead of our local school districts.


The virus is not currently widespread. Thus preparation is our priority. While person to person spread is the primary means of infection, ReSOURCE is increasing the cleaning frequency of public areas and common surfaces in our four store locations and in all our training facilities.


We are dedicated to maintaining that level of caution and will continue to make adjustments as needed. Below is a link that is being updated by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) with new and relevant information as it becomes available.
