The mission of the Freedom Village Store is to provide Freedom citizens with a central location where exchange of ideas, camaraderie, and social interaction can take place.
The Freedom Village Store (FVS) is a non profit Community center in the heart of Freedom Village. This community center is run by over 65 dedicated volunteers. FVS will be having its 3rd annual auction in November this year. The money raised from this auction is used to keep The Freedom Village Store open during the winter months, providing a place for everyone to socialize, have a light meal, breakfast or snack, sell their handmade goods and enjoy being part of a community. We strive to be a true community center for everyone. We have visitors from Freedom all the way to North Dakota. During the summer it is not uncommon to see people from other countries visit the store. Everyone is welcome!
The Freedom Village Store supports the community (near and far) in a variety of ways. We provide a place for artisans to sell their goods. Nearly every product line in the community center is made in the USA. Many of the quality goods are made in Freedom and surrounding towns. The Freedom Village Store volunteers also keep a close watch on people. Those that are regulars in our store know that if we don’t see them, they will be called or checked up on. This applies to many of the people we see on a daily basis. There is always a shoulder to cry on, a topic to debate and someone to laugh with at FVS.
We are asking for your support this year. This will be our third Annual Harvest Auction. It is critical this year. The community as a whole has seen a down slide in sales and visitors. With your donation of a service, item, monetary contribution The Freedom Village Store will be open through the winter.
Freedom Village Store is run entirely by volunteers .
During our regular store hours of 10am – 2pm Sunday through Friday and Saturday 9am-2pm. There are 3 shifts available, 10am – Noon, 11am-1 or Noon – 2pm.
We are open seven days a week and need coverage daily.
Your shift will go by fast, as the word is getting out that FVS is the place to be for a relaxed atmosphere to sit awhile, enjoy a cup of coffee or drink and have a pastry or something to eat for lunch. Browse artwork by local artists, our many antiques and consignment items.
