Our 1st Avenue location is on the west side of the road between Grant and Glenn. This location gets a ton of great donations from the UofA so we always have wildcat gear and a great selection of clothing. Our wares section is always stocked full with unique and amazing glassware and ceramics. This location also houses a FREE Job Connection Center to help serve anyone in the community with job search needs. See below for details. Next time you are in the UofA area, swing by our 1st Ave thrift store for amazing finds or to donate a bag of old clothes.
