Find Essential Items at Affordable Prices
And Support Neighbors at the Same Time!

After taking its second pause during the COVID pandemic, the Clothes Closet Thrift Store re-opened for in-person shopping on Wednesday, March 17 and began accepting donations on April 7.

During the latest temporary closure, the store layout was updated a second time to maximize customers’ ability to safely social distance from each other and a re-focus on providing merchandise that prioritizes essential items to better serve the needs of our community was implemented. Shoppers will continue to find great deals on essential items such as clothing, accessories, shoes, bedding, towels, dishes, pots, pans and utensils. To make space for these essential items, the Clothes Closet will no longer sell some items such as games, puzzles, décor and party supplies.

As always, when you shop at the Clothes Closet Thrift Store, you are supporting the programs and services at Neighbors, Inc. By donating to and shopping thrift, you are also contributing to environmental sustainability.

Current shopping hours are from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays. A mask is required for in-person shopping.
