Who are we?
Glad you asked. Victory Thrift Store is a second-hand store that sells furniture, housewares, clothing, collectibles and just about everything else you can imagine. We are a group of community minded people doing whatever we can to make the Bow Valley the best it can be!
how did we begin?
Over a decade ago a garage sale was held through the Rocky Mountain Victory Church to collect enough funds to make up Christmas Hampers for families in need. People have never stopped giving us their treasures, and we've never stopped helping people.
are we a non-profit organization?
Yes, Victory Thrift Store is a non-profit organization. But we rely on you, your donations, your volunteering and your shopping at our store to "help us help others". We do this through a number of different programs which you can learn more about on this website or by contacting us at the store.
shouldn't the store be self-SUFFICIENT without asking for your money or support?
Not at all. The store has the same overhead costs as any other store; profit or non-profit. In fact, with thrift store prices and the same overhead, we could not stay open without our amazing volunteers! Additional programs rely on the help of others in our communtity like you.
