Relying solely on donations, the Bissell Centre Thrift Shoppe provides low-income families and individuals a place to purchase the items they need at affordable prices.

We are in need of gently used Spring and Summer clothing for men, women and children.

How the Thrift Shoppe Helps People
- All revenue from our Thrift Shoppe directly supports Bissell Centre programs, which are designed to eliminate poverty in Edmonton.
- Thousands of Thrift Shoppe customers depend on the affordable clothing and household goods monthly to support their low-income families.
- 35,000 articles of clothing are given free of charge to people struggling with poverty and homelessness in the inner city each year.
The Community Closet assists low income families and individuals by providing them with free clothing and footwear. This program is operated solely by our volunteers, and is located in Bissell Centre’s West building (10530 – 96 Street). The Community Closet has proven to be very successful as low income families and individuals have their own place to ‘shop’ with dignity assisted by dedicated volunteers.
External agencies may refer clients to Bissell Centre’s intake workers in our Drop-in Centre to access the Community Closet. Please refer clients to visit Bissell Centre’s Drop-in Centre during intake hours (Monday/Wednesday/Friday, 9 am – 3:30 pm) in our West building.
