Partners for Smart Growth
We’re a thrift superstore that looks and operates just like a traditional discount department store but with an important distinction. We purchase nearly all of our apparel and household goods from local nonprofits who received them as donations. Our mission is to make every neighborhood where we do business a better place to live, and our business model of purchasing, reselling and recycling gives communities a smart way to shop and keeps more than 700 million pounds of used goods from landfills each year. The reliable revenue stream we provide our nonprofit partners enables them to provide vital local community programs and services.
We are also great neighbors because we drive traffic to your shopping center. Many of our customers visit us multiple times a week to treasure hunt. Our customers span the demographic spectrum from 'need to' to 'want to' shoppers. Donors visit us regularly to drop off their gently used clothing and household goods, and each of our stores typically drives over 3,000 visits weekly.
We would be honored to be a part of your community, your shopping center and your future growth.
