Visit Our Thrift Store!

Our thrift store is pretty great. It has the largest selection of quality clothing of all local thrift stores. Not only will you find some great deals, but the proceeds help fund our operating costs. People who need clothing but can't afford it can shop for free. This may be homeless persons who just need a change of clothes; fire victims; a family fleeing from domestic violence with only the clothes on their backs; a person needing nicer clothing for job interviews; and people getting a new job that requires different clothing.

8,000 Clothing Items, Furniture, 14,000 Books, Housewares, Gifts, etc.

POP! Thrift Store open
Monday - Saturday from 10:00 until 5:00

Drive right into
our parking lot with
your donations!

We'll help you unload but the gates close at 5:00.

We cannot accept large appliances, mattresses, or baby furniture and baby gear like cribs, carriers, bouncie chairs, etc. as there are many ongoing safety recalls on these types of items.
Thanks so much!

Unfortunately, we are no longer able to pick up donations due to cost of fuel and very limited staff.

DONATIONS: Unlike other for-profit thrift shops, donations in the above stores are sold or used locally to benefit local nonprofit services. Some of our shops are small and we can’t always accept all your large donations due to space or staffing limitations. Some of us need to have a phone call first to arrange donations and some accept donations offsite. Please give us a call if you have a large quantity of donations, items you are unsure of, or need your furniture picked up.

We greatly appreciate your donations and without your support, cannot be here to serve people and communities in Shasta County. Thank you for your help!

RECYCLING: Salvation Army will recycle all your unusable clothing, small appliances, computers and electronics. Local landfills now recycle mattresses, couches and upholstered items, large appliances and electronics.

We cannot be open seven days a week but the impact of our services helps our local communities 24/7.
Thank you for your shopping and donation support!
