The Shop on the Corner Thrift Store offers a place for community members to purchase affordable clothing and household goods by providing a place for responsible off-loading and reuse of no-longer-wanted items. It creates a sense of community for customers and volunteers. All proceeds help to feed, shelter, and clothe families in need.
The Shop is run entirely by volunteers and depends on donations from our generous local community. More than two dozen volunteers support the Shop and spend about 3,000 hours per year sorting, cleaning, repairing, and pricing the donations. The weekly Wednesday morning sales generate revenues of more than $25,000 annually. The annual financial and in-kind contributions go primarily to regional charitable organizations, with about one third going to local Los Alamos-based beneficiaries. About 98% of the Shop’s revenue is distributed to charities including Navajoland Area Mission, LA Cares food pantry, Food Depot in Santa Fe, Self Help, Inc., Los Alamos YMCA Teen Center, Habitat for Humanity, local animal shelters, and many more. The Shop also makes in-kind contributions of unsold items to Big Brothers/Big Sisters and the community of Bernal, New Mexico.
In 2017, the Shop relocated to newly renovated space in the former Teen Center of the Church. There is a large bin outside the Shop entrance which allows people to drop off their donations at any time. Receipts for donations to be used for tax purposes are available from volunteers. In addition, the Shop recently began having Saturday sales on the second Saturday of each month. The intent is to attract more customers from the local community who might not be able to take advantage of our weekly Wednesday morning sales.
