Made possible with wonderful community support.
As of Wednesday August 25th masks are mandatory to enter the Thrift Store.
Located in Northridge Mall at 5800 Turner Road in beautiful Nanaimo BC.
There are standards set for the quality of goods acceptable for resale and the pricing of such. Anything not deemed suitable for sale in the store is redonated – especially to our partners at Big Brothers and Crossroads Pregnancy Centre. Every effort is made to recycle and avoid using the landfill.
The store usually services between 250 to 300 customers per day, which makes it a very busy place and is testament to its popularity. Much effort has been made to make it not seem like a “thrift store”, by having individual departments with a “manager” responsible for the presentation and pricing of items, and placing an emphasis on displaying only quality merchandise.
The store receives great support from the community in the form of wonderful donations.
In 2019 our store received First Place prize in the Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce awards, and in 2020 and 2021 it was awarded Best of the City by Nanaimo News Bulletin readers.
Donations: May be made from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Tuesday to Saturday. Please limit your donations to two bags or boxes at this time.
Please do not leave donations outside the Thrift Store when it is closed!
