My tutor Dave and I walked to this store today to do some holiday shopping, and had a nice experience. We found what I was looking for right away, and went up to pay for the item. The cashier addressed me directly, and immediately noticed my JJ's List T-shirt. Thanks to the organization JJ's List for giving it to me. I have known about this store for several years, but today was only my second visit. Definitely returning here sometime.

I have been going and help out with events in the past. I want to keep working and helping out as a volunteer at Ten Thousand Villages. I know a lot of people who work there, and I have a roommate who used to work there. When i come in to the store they all ways ask me if I want coffee and they are very nice. I like to look around the store, they have a lot of different plates, CDs and clothing. They talk directly to the customer and have an employee working there with a disability. They are extremely flexible when it comes to providing customer service, and are friendly and respectful. I can't wait to go back and volunteer at Ten Thousand Villages.
