Something about our thrift store quickens the heart and brings a smile to the face. Our customers know that we give them the opportunity to save money and to find something useful, if not unique. They love to talk to us too. Many of our shoppers come by every day and we are proud to know them so very well.
Many Tri-City Volunteers thrift store customers shop with us because they are clients of our food bank and have to watch what they spend. They love our low, low prices. For others, it’s about the thrill of the hunt and the promise of treasure YOUR OLD STUFF!
For the benefit of our low-income shoppers, we keep the prices of all our donations low. Remember, every Thursday is SALE DAY and all our clothing and furniture is half price
Our most important service to the community is our Food Bank. We are the largest client-direct food bank in Alameda County, providing some 16,000 individuals with over 6 million pounds of food in 2013. We receive Emergency Food Boxes from the Alameda County Community Food Bank and Surplus Food from the USDA. We also have strong ties to local stores and small businesses that allow us to rescue good food that would normally go to waste.
