Thrift Store

As of Tuesday, September 8th the Thrift Store will be ACCEPTING DONATIONS Tuesdays – Fridays from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and Saturdays 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Due to limited capacity, we are only able to accept a maximum number of items from each donor: you may bring up to two large trash bags of soft items (clothing, linens) and 1 box of hard goods (household goods, kitchen). For the safety of our staff and volunteers we ask that all donors wear a mask when dropping off and stay outside the building. We will accept donations on a first come first serve basis until we are at capacity.

As of Tuesday, September 8th the Thrift Store will be open for SHOPPING BY APPOINTMENT ONLY Tuesdays – Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.. Please call 303-665-4342 to schedule an appointment for a 45 minutes shopping period. One adult shopper per appointment slot please; no children under 18. Unfortunately, as we reopen the store with only limited access, we will not be able to offer special discounts or coupons. For the safety of our shoppers, volunteers, and staff, we ask that all shoppers wear a mask, maintain a safe distance of 6 feet from all other individuals, have their temperature taken at the door, and sign a Health Screening Certification confirming that they have not had COVID-19 symptoms within the last 72 hours. Staff will be cleaning and sanitizing the store between each group of shoppers. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we ask for your patience and hope that you will bear with us as we all become familiar with these new changes, so we may reopen the thrift store safely and effectively. Thank you for your support and happy shopping!
