SVdP Columbus Thrift Stores


St. Vincent de Paul in Columbus is excited to announce our first Thrift Store that will open in late fall of 2019. You will find our new store at the Carnaby Center on E. Main Street at Interstate 270. Over the next several months, we will operate a donation drop off center in the same shopping center aso that we can prepare donations for our store opening. 

Stop by to volunteer and by later  this summer you will see the store begin to take shape as signs go up, display racks are set up inside, and donations are accepted. Watch this site for regular updates!

What can you do to help?


Volunteers are needed to help accept and prepare donations for sale at our Donation Drop-Off Center. Call 614-377-1065 to volunteer to help make this Thrift Store a reality! We need people to help accept and process donations and prepare them for sale.


Your donations will make a difference in the lives of the people we serve in the Central Ohio area. Whether it's a mom who needs clothes for her children, someone recently released from prison who is setting up a new home and needs furniture and household items, or a man who needs dress clothes for a job interview, our Thrift Store can help with clothing, household items and so much more. And the money we earn from sales will help St. Vincent de Paul continue to help with rent support, utilities, food and all the other programs that support our neighbors throughout our Diocese. Take a look at our web site for more information about all our special works and programming that we offer.

Your donations will go to help individuals who need clothing or household items through our voucher program or through sales at our store that will be used to support our work.
