We sell quality used goods for the good of others, but more than that, we are a family of believers that wake up every day with the intention of making a positive difference in the world. Our efforts are modest, and our contributions are humble, but we do what we do out of love, with love, and for the sake of our community’s future. So please come in and take a look, support us in our mission and join us on our quest to be Christ for others. The St. John XXIII Thrift Store went from big to bigger with its renovation in 2010, a project that was more than six months in the execution. We celebrated with a Grand Reopening that brought in new customers and exceeded our sales expectations. Our volunteer ranks continue to grow, with over 130 current volunteers on the roster.
