Thrift Stores

Our stores in the Portland area serve as an additional source of income for local basic needs programs.


The Salvation Army Thrift Stores in the Portland Metro area and Salem will begin a phased reopening on Friday, June 12. In accordance with health department guidelines, shoppers will be asked to stay 6 feet apart to maintain social distancing and wear a cloth face covering. In addition, fitting rooms will be closed, and each store will limit the number of shoppers at any given time. Staff will be on hand at each storefront to manage safe entry.

Opening Dates:
Salem: Friday, June 12
Tigard: Friday, June 19
Milwaukie: Friday, June 26
Gresham: Friday, July 10
Hillsboro: TBA
Happy Valley: Store permanently closed

For the safety of Salvation Army Family Thrift Store customers, donated items are held for 72 hours before being placed on the sales floor. When buying items offered in resale stores, best practices include:

  • Wash and dry clothing on the warmest setting appropriate for the fabric content
  • Use a disinfecting wipe with at least 70% alcohol on touch screens and other surface areas of purchased electronics
  • Disinfect furniture and other items having hard surfaces with EPA-registered household disinfectants
  • Spray upholstered furniture or other soft surfaces with EPA-registered disinfectants suitable for porous surfaces

Shoppers who feel more comfortable shopping online are encouraged to visit ShopTheSalvationArmy.com.

The reopening of the stores is an important step toward financial security for the no-fee, residential Adult Rehabilitation Centers (ARCs) that are funded by the sale of donated items in The Salvation Army’s Family Thrift Stores. The Salvation Army has 17 Adult Rehabilitation Centers in the Western US that are supported by the sale of items in our Family Thrift Stores. In fact, everything you donate to or buy from a Family Thrift Store helps someone access the care they need in one of our no fee, residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers.

These are challenging and uncertain times for us all. The Salvation Army in Oregon is hard at work to meet the physical needs of our community by providing food to the hungry and sharing hope in the place of fear. For information about our services in response to COVID-19 please visit salarmy.us/COVID-19Services.

Thrift Stores in Grants Pass, Medford, Baker City, Pendleton, Roseburg, The Dalles, and Coos Bay have reopened as of Monday, June 1. Learn more at cascade.salvationarmy.org.
