Assistance League of Charlotte Thrift Shop

Voted best Thrift Shop in Charlotte by Creative Loafing Readers

Chosen as #1 Thrift Shop by Charlotte Stories

First time Shoppers and regulars alike agree this is a great place to shop!

Proceeds from the Thrift Shop help fund Assistance League of Charlotte philanthropic programs.

Bargains abound in gently used items such as clothing, books, toys, jewelry, household items, electronics, computers, shoes, sports equipment and baby items. Assistance League members staff the store and help provide an enjoyable shopping experience for each customer.

Members pay special attention to sorting donations to the shop to make sure that the merchandise is of the best quality. Items considered unsuitable for sale are donated to other nonprofits in the Charlotte area.

It takes many hands and hours to sort, clean, and price donations.  Our dedicated members are there almost everyday processing our donations.  Many of our customers are also our donors. 

Our Policies


We have a “NO RETURN” policy, NO EXCEPTIONS!


We accept credit/debit cards with the exception of AMEX.
