Greensboro-Based Junk Removal Company Expands Concept to New Community Thrift Store
Sustainability Model Keeps Unique Treasures In the Community and Out of Landfills
Greensboro, NC, February 6, 2024 — Local junk removal company T.C.C. —
Junk Removal & Demolition announces the grand opening of its first community thrift store TCC Thrift on Saturday, Feb. 17, 2024, returning found items including furniture, gym equipment, collectibles, jewelry, and more back into the community rather than ending up in landfills.
The company has designated more than 60 percent of its current 3,000-square-foot Greensboro facility at 135 Montlieu Avenue to display and resell a wide array of items, from small to large, vintage to valuable and the occasionally glamorous to bizarre.
“We’re excited to introduce this concept to Greensboro and the Triad. Sustainability is one hundred percent our mission,” said owner Nikolas Grundseth. “A lot of junk removal companies say that they donate items, but when you dig a little deeper, you’ll find that they really don’t have the infrastructure to handle donations at all. And your items end up in a landfill anyway.”
T.C.C. Junk Removal & Demolition has built their model completely based on rehoming their amazing finds. Currently in operation throughout the Triad since 2019, the company’s roots began several years earlier when Grundseth began reselling items online to the general public while still a college student. With their junk removal business now staying busy year-round, they’ve incorporated a true sustainability mission to keep discovered items out of landfills and give them a new and extended life within the community.
“The store is truly a treasure trove of found items,” said co-owner Mason Eades. “Nearly every haul-away job nets us some interesting, and even valuable, finds. That means the thrift store inventory is changing daily, as we always have a truckload ready to enter the store once space is available. You never know what you’ll find!”
“Every item in our store has been diverted from a landfill,” said Grundseth. “And that makes us really proud. We want to keep these treasures and the dollars they generate within our community. Plus, we love the thrill of the hunt with every junk hauling job—and so do our crews.”
TCC Thrift will be open to the public Tuesday through Sunday each week from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. beginning February 17, 2024. They are not taking outside donations at this time.

About The Community Chests and T.C.C. Junk Removal & Demolition
Though he didn’t know it at the time, the seed ideas for The Community Chests and T.C.C. Junk Removal & Demolition began in his North Carolina State University dorm room in 2017. Nikolas Grundseth just wanted to make a few extra bucks; the more he sold, the more he found to sell. From its original reselling concept, Grundseth grew the business into a successful junk hauling, removal and demolition business. Co-owner Mason Eades joined the business in 2020, and the two divide both operational and marketing duties and more.
Today, T.C.C. Junk Removal & Demolition and TCC Thrift employs six full-time workers year-round and estimates that it has sold or rehomed more than 7,000 items, recycled more than 100 tons of scrap metal, and donated thousands of items to nonprofits, keeping countless tons of goods out of Triad landfills every year.
