Thrift Shoppe Open for Business after Fire Re-Build

by | POSTED: Dec 04, 2014

Bissell Centre’s Thrift Shoppe has re-opened its doors at the original location at 8818-118th avenue after two devastating fires destroyed the main building in September 2013 and  the temporary location in June 2014.

Thanks to everyone who supported us during the rebuild and helped to open our doors!

The re-opening of the store is vital to the well-being of low-income individuals and families in Edmonton. The two fires directly affected the 6,000 low-income people who were forced to look elsewhere for affordable clothing and household goods.

The store also provides free clothes to impoverished families and individuals through our Community Closet Program, plus it provides funding to support various Bissell Centre programs and services.
