What did the families like most about the Jubilee Store?
Friendly people and big smiles
I was treated with respect and got brand names at reasonable prices
Everybody was so extremely happy! You’ve made an opportunity for my four kids and myself to have a happy Christmas!
Everything was set up like a boutique
I was able to get what my kids asked for
The customer service and the idea of shopping with a budget, the gift wrappers helping and wrapping giftsEach person seemed eager to help and in a great spirit
It was perfect
“The Jubilee Store is a great opportunity for families to have a hand up, not a hand-out. Things at the store are not free, but discounted so that you get a bargain. I can spend my own money and get a good deal; it’s not just handed to me. I don’t want to feel like everything is free just because of my situation. The store gives me pride and honor by giving me a chance to buy my own gifts. Everyone did a fantastic job with organizing the store. It was wonderful!”
