The Shops at the Caring Place (Open Mon-Sat, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., and until 7:00 p.m. on Thursdays.
For over 30 years, the thrift store at The Caring Place has served as a successful, ongoing fundraising project for the organization. The thrift shop has grown and is now The Shops at The Caring Place generating approximately 59% of our total revenue ensuring that every dollar donated goes directly to our needy families and that we will be here in the days, months and years ahead.
An efficient team of Caring Place volunteers and employees specialize in turning donations of gently-used, unwanted items from the community into sought-after treasurers. Our volunteers accept donations at an average of about 100 cars per day. Once processed, the donations are moved into the sales area, where each item is displayed within one of four specialty shops. Collectively, the four shops are known as The Shops at The Caring Place.
Hours are Monday thru Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursday until 7 p.m.

Fabulous Finds: The general merchandise area of the store
Re-Finds Antiques: A warm, cozy room containing antiques and collectibles
The Boutique: A classy destination which showcases finer clothing and accessories
