New safety precautions for your thrifting experience

One Rochester shop shares what’s being done

Funk Frog Resale on Live in the D

Resale shops are used to selling items other people don’t want, but now the items need to be managed differently.

Host Jason Carr chatted with Renee Perkins, the owner of the Funky Frog Children’s Resale Boutique, in Rochester about how they are taking precautions while reselling clothes.

Perkins explained how items are quarantined for 3 to 4 days before marking them on sale. To protect customers and workers, Funky Frog closed their fitting rooms and they do not accept returns. They also ask that customers wear a mask while shopping and use the sanitation stations provided.
