Community Closet Thrift Store

The Community Closet stocks high quality clothing for women and men, including well known labels, at a fraction of the usual cost. Enjoy shopping for fashionable bargains while helping to support our community programs. 

Profits raised by our thrift store go directly back into funding community programs at James Bay Community Project.  


Proceeds from the Community Closet Thrift Store directly supports James Bay Community Project which offers community programming for families, youth, adults and seniors.

Donation Guidelines

The Community Closet accepts donations of clean and gently-used men’s and women’s clothing, shoes and fashion accessories. In order to continue to provide quality products at fair prices for our customers while supporting programs that improve the lives of people in our community, we ask that donations be of high-quality; not worn through or excessively faded; free of stains or tears; and should not have missing buttons or loose threads. Items that do not meet our standards pose an undue burden on volunteers and our limited capacity. Your cooperation, patronage, and overwhelming generosity is graciously appreciated. Thank you for your consideration and kindness.

Thank You

We’d like to thank the generous consignment stores who regularly donate very good quality clothing to the Community Closet.
