You’ve just discovered the Twin Cities’ best kept secret (but once you’ve tried it, we bet you won’t be able to keep it to yourself!) Arc’s Value Village is the first and only thrift store to offer you free, by-appointment personal shopping and styling services. We invite you to meet with a local style expert who will create a customized shopping experience at Arc’s Value Village that’s uniquely you, hand-picking a selection of clothing and accessories that match your individual needs at a great price.

Book Your Appointment

Book by emailing with your preference for single or dual client appointment and store location. Once booked, you’ll have an opportunity to describe your personal style using our comprehensive Style Profile. Your stylist will review your sizes, goals, fashion preferences and even your Pinterest style board (if you provide a link) and then get to work shopping for you!

Your Appointment

When you arrive for your 75-minute session, your stylist will present you with a special selection of items just for you! Try them on, get feedback and buy only what you love. We are confident that our stylists will help you achieve your style goals on a thrift store budget. Coupons are not accepted with the personal shopping service. Please, only one appointment per person in a 90 day period.


Please provide 48-hour cancellation notice by contacting us.
