Bargain Box Thrift Store
The Assistance League Thrift Store is our primary and largest fundraiser. It is operated solely by member volunteers. The store opened in September 1956 and has grown in both size and customer volume. The chapter strives to provide quality merchandise at reasonable prices to valued customers.
The store is staffed by our dedicated members, who sort, size, price, and repair and display merchandise on the floor. Offered is clothing and shoes for children and adults, household items, books, sports equipment, toys, linens, and small electronics for “bargain” prices.
All revenue from sales is spent to fund the philanthropic programs and to purchase new clothing for Operation School Bell® and new teddy bears for Operation Hugs.
The thrift store is open Monday through Saturday 1 AM to 3 PM Donations can be dropped off at our receiving door adjacent to the alley during business hours. The store closes for a summer break mid-June to August 1 and again between Christmas and New Year’s.
