My pastor received a call from someone who offered to help him increase the web traffic for our church’s thrift store. They want a bunch of money to do it so he asked me to see what I could do. As it stands, if you google the store’s name (Harvest Thrift & Boutique) it comes up as the #1 result. If you google “harvest thrift” or “thrift & boutique” then it comes up on the first page of Google’s results. But if you type in something like “thrift store, howell, nj” then it doesn’t pop up at all, at least not nearly close enough to the top for anyone to find it. So I’m mentioning the Harvest Thrift & Boutique here and including some key words. We’re located at the following address:
Harvest Thrift & Boutique
4308 US Highway 9
Howell, NJ 07731
For those interested in knowing a bit about the store here’s what I wrote for the church’s blog:
As of November 1, 2011 Harvester of Souls International Ministries has been blessed with the opportunity to serve our community and the church of Christ through the operation of our Harvest Thrift & Boutique. The Harvest Thrift & Boutique is a non-profit organization that is designed to generate revenue for the work of the ministry. Our efforts range from holding monthly evangelistic events for the “un-churched” to placing those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction into Christ-centered rehabilitation programs. It goes without saying that there is a great amount of overhead involved in the operation of any ministry.
The Lord has opened up a number of doors in order for us to begin operating in our current location, and he continues to bless us daily in the receiving of merchandise donations for sale—but at the moment we lack one thing—a steady stream of customers! We’re reaching out to our fellow citizens of the kingdom and ministers of the gospel in hopes that they’ll be able to help us out in this area. Would you consider partnering with us in getting the word out about the Harvest Thrift & Boutique?
We offer a wide selection of both new and pre-owned items at affordable prices; everything from furniture to clothing to children’s items and accessories. You can visit our website or give us a call if you have any questions. We hope to see you soon! May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you.
