At one time or another, we carry just about everything you could possibly imagine. Our 18,000 square foot Thrift Shop has furniture, appliances, clothing, jewellery, toys, books, sporting goods, housewares, electronics and, the list goes on.
Our merchandise changes from week to week, so be sure to visit our store frequently for the latest finds.
We can accept donations from an estate, but we do not provide service for managing estate clearances.
We have a very large book department which contains thousands of books and magazines. New titles arrive daily.
SOS takes most saleable items, however if there is an item that we know from experience won’t sell on the floor, or we have an over abundance of that item, we may decline it.
Yes, amazingly, 95 cents of every dollar spent in the SOS Thrift Shop is invested back into our community. Our friendly and hardworking volunteers help us to achieve this.
We are open 6 days per week, Monday through Saturday 9am-4pm.
SOS Thrift Shop prices are set based on experience and research into brands and pricing. The prices are non-negotiable, and the money raised from purchases are used to fund community programs and services that residents rely on. We are happy to offer merchandise for all budgets, from a $2 shirt to a $400+ piece of furniture. If you are in financial need, you can call our Emergency Assistance and Advocacy Coordinator at 250.248-2093 ext. 241 to make an appointment to discuss your needs, and we may be able to assist you. We encourage residents to shop local, recycle, reuse, and support our community, but we understand if you feel you can get a better deal elsewhere.
