Our Economy Shop is among the busiest stores in town! There are always treasures to be found, and great deals to be had.
The majority of volunteers work at the Economy Shop. Most days the shop has a continuous stream of donations coming in which must be sorted, cleaned, steamed, and processed for sale. With the lack of storage space, all items are put out for sale as soon as possible, so new items are always appearing on the shelves.
Our store relies on donations, but due to the lack of storage space, floor space, item recalls and Government regulations, below is a list of items we can NOT accept.
DONATIONS - WE DO NOT ACCEPT
Appliances (Large Ones)
Baby Furniture (Of Any Kind)
Books (Encyclopedias/ Readers Digests) Only Books In Great Shape
Building Supplies/ Debris
Cable Boxes (TV)
Cassettes (Cassette Boxes/VHS)
Clothing (Wet or Dirty)
Clothes Hangers (NO Wire Hangers) White Plastic Only
Computers or Computer Equipment (Printers/ Scanners/ Photocopiers)

WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE ANY ITEM
If you want to donate furniture, please phone the shop first to see if we have room to accept the item. Floor space is limited and this changes from day to day.
In the mean time, stop by our shop often and check out the new items!
