Unfinished Business: A Community Thrift Shop is founded and operated by Alexandria Maloy and Lynne Maloy.
Alexandria Maloy has had a diverse and exciting career for one so young. Opening UB Thrift at the age of 19, and responsible for the day to day operation of UB, Alexandria is one of the youngest small business owners in Delaware. She brings to the table her computer knowledge, social networking, and organizational skills. She quickly evaluates, prioritizes and problem solves so that UB services the community, their customers and their mission.
A graduate of St. Thomas More Preparatory and Delaware Technical Community College, Alexandria has an innovative approach to marketing. Her outreach efforts have resulted in not only a larger customer base, but a larger donor exchange. Her work with our partners has expanded our reach, and has solidified UB's positive standing in Sussex County.
Alexandria works hard at building strong communities through social action with a business management style of problem solving. She is a local, thru and thru. Although she has traveled extensively, her home is in Sussex County. So is her heart!
