Who we are…
Mary & Steve started The Shop Around the Corner in 2005 with some friends from church. They bought out the partnership and continued growing the store for the next several years. Those years included some tough times, moving the store to a new location and all the usual growing pains. From a beginning of about 2,500 square feet to their current facility of 35,000 square feet, Shop Around the Corner is one of the biggest resale & consignment stores in Missouri – even the nation! Over 16,000 consignors bring in the best items and clothing!
The Shop Around The Corner has become a gathering place for our community in Washington and the St. Louis area. Our goal has consistently been to provide great items at fair and affordable prices, while offering our consignors the opportunity to earn money back for items they no longer use. It’s resale at its best! To that end we are dedicated to ensuring The Shop Around The Corner is the ideal place for the exchange of goods and engagement of people.
We hope to provide a fun and friendly atmosphere for our consignors and customers, one that is positive and uplifting. We aspire to continue being a business that supports our community.
Every day we thank our consignors who partner with us and our customers who allow us to continue to serve our community.
We desire to show we love our country, our family, and our neighbors; and our Lord and Savior, Jesus.
We hope to inspire everyone we meet to grounded optimism and happiness.
The best mission statement we have ever known belongs to St. Louis Family Church in Chesterfield, MO, where it is stated: Honor God. Help People. We agree with that statement!
