Our Santa Cruz Thrift Center is now open!


We are pleased to announce that our Santa Cruz location is now open:

Monday – Saturday 10:00am to 7:00pm
Sunday 11:00am to 5:00pm
Face coverings are required for shoppers and team members. New merchandise is held back for 72 hours before being displayed for you on the sales floor and we are sanitizing surfaces all day long to ensure your visit features the most selection, savings, and safety for everyone. Welcome back to Santa Cruz Thrift Center!


It’s all about selection. We know in order to be your favorite thrift store we need to make sure our stores are full of fresh, one-of-a-kind treasures and bargains. We work hard every day at each of our stores to produce the best resale selection in the Bay Area. 

We keep track of how long our merchandise has been on the sales floor by using different colored price tags that denote when each item was put out for sale. Most of our items sell during the first week. To make room for newly arriving treasures, we remove the older items from the sales floor. These items are recycled in a variety of ways; reused and re-purposed here in the U.S., as well as other countries, where they will be appreciated and put back to use.


Our everyday prices are great deals, but we also have additional ways to help you save even more money:

Weekly Color Tag Discount

We discount the color tag that’s been on the sales floor for 4 weeks. This color tag is 50% off starting Monday, and through the following Saturday. On Sunday, items featuring this oldest tag are only 99¢! After this, the items are recycled to make room for even more new merchandise.

Senior, Military and Student Discount Days

Every Monday senior citizens 55 years of age and over save 50% on all color tags except our current and specially marked tags. Visit each store for additional discount days you may qualify for.
