Our hope is that in all aspects of our organization, Christ’s love will be exemplified.
Mission Thrift Store is a non-profit, volunteer-driven, Christian organization with over 50 stores across Canada.
We convert donated goods into cash, and the net proceeds of all sales are sent to our joint ministry with Bible League Canada to fund international programs in over 40 countries worldwide.
Staff and volunteers believe there is a deeper purpose to everything in life, including shopping. We sell gently-used clothing and household items to value-conscious shoppers, who shop for deals they can feel good about.
Mission Thrift Store History
In the fall of 1988, two gentlemen from Chilliwack, BC joined the Bible League’s ministry tour to India. Throughout the tour they learned about the history, culture, religion and economic situation of the people there. They also visited new emerging Christian churches that were established as a result of the relationship between Bible League Canada and its Ministry partner. The trip left both men with a desire to help the people of India and on returning to Canada they became involved in discussions with the Director of Bible League Canada. They ultimately established a thrift store, donating the net revenue to Bible League Canada so Bibles could be distributed to the people of India. Since then, Mission Thrift Store has grown to over 50 locations across
