Picture of thrift shopper



The PACS Thrift Store provides clothing and household items at extremely low costs. No clothing lines, just a regular shopping experience, except that you can always find many items priced as low as $0.25. The average price an item sold for in 2015 was just $1.16. Be sure to look for the sign inside the store that shows the color discount. Items are priced with colored tags, and are marked down every two weeks to 25% off, 50% off and sometimes end up as low as $0.25. Colors change on the 1st and 16th of each month, or if we are closed on the normal color-change date, it moves to the next following business day. On the last business day before a color change day there is ten cent day where items of the lowest-priced color are marked down to $0.10 for one day to clear them off the floor.

How can I get help?

Just walk in during our hours and do your shopping. The store is open to everyone. There is no qualification process or low-income requirement, but many low-income families find they are able to find items they need at prices they can afford.
