Together we can change the world
omg! Thrift gives a second home to more than 20 million pounds of gently-worn, second-hand clothing, shoes and household items that could have otherwise ended up in your local landfill.
The sale of gently-worn clothing, shoes and household items allows us to employ more than 250 team members in our retail stores. Our bulk purchases to our non-profit and for-profit suppliers allows them to employ hundreds of people in their clothing collection programs nationwide.
We are a great neighbor in the communities we serve. We support several local causes in the communities our stores are located in. Each and every year we give a percentage of our sales to local cancer charities during breast cancer awareness month. We love to support great causes at OMG Thrift.
