Treasure Valley nonprofit thrift stores: The guide

I missed a few stores in a list that accompanied Sunday's story about thrift stores. It's always hard to get everyone into a list like that — this is a very big valley — but one of the reasons we launched this blog was to create a "go to" source for shoppers, diners and anyone else in search of retail info, and what better place than that for a full listing?

So here's a list of nonprofit thrift stores in the Treasure Valley. I'd like it to be a work in progress, so if you find any that are absent, or if any new ones open, please post a comment. I'll add 'em:

Added it, thanks!

CBS ONTARIO (Community Building Supply) etc

Recycled and reuseable building materials and furnishings, appliances. Supports the Four Rivers medical clinic benefitting low-income patients without insurance.

There is a thrift store on the campus of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, 829 Southwest 2nd Avenue Ontario, OR 97914
(541) 889-8469 (parish office). It's a red brick house.

The thrift at St. Matthew's Episcopal Church was converted to the Second Chance Food Pantry serving the Oregon Foodbank.

The Ontario store of Salvation Army Thrift Stores is at 1293 SW 4th Avenue. Ontario, OR 97914. (541) 889-8827 in case they haven't covered it.

There are plenty of secondhand thrift stores that are for profit that are just as important to the needy consumer base of the Treasure Valley. They tend to thrive on local auctions more than trades or donations but are every bit as important to our economy. They can have a hard time themselves and therefore the roll call will fluctuate from time to time. I won't go off topic as they aren't usually hard to find.


You fry wants with that?

you're right

I may add a section for the ones that aren't nonprofit. I'll also add some outside of Boise Nampa area. Thanks.

Took a while

Took a while for me to get to this, but I've added them.

Very nice!
