About Us

Our History

2nd Ave Thrift Superstores grew up from the original 1959 for-profit thrift company. We believe thrifting is a lifestyle and that lifestyle should be affordable and accessible to all. When you shop at 2nd Ave, you can expect not only the highest quality second-hand goods but also the best value in clothing, household items and collectibles.
