Here's How It Works:
Once an item has passed several quality checks it becomes ready to be priced. We price items
on coloured tags which helps us identify how long it has been on the sales floor.
The production team members determine the value for the thousands of items they handle daily.
They consider quality, condition, style, brand name, seasonality, uniqueness and rarity to
determine an item’s price.
Consider that we have the one-of- a-kind, unique items that you will not see anywhere else. We
don’t have racks upon racks of the same styles. Whether it’s vintage, retro, trendy or classic,
you won’t find hundreds of them on our floors.
As an organization, the Salvation Army has been recycling for over 100 years. Our primary focus is
to be able to provide our customers with the best possible product. The reality is that not all items
that our donated to us are sellable.
Through careful sorting of donated goods our dedicated and socially conscious staff take the
necessary steps to ensure the reduction of unsalable items from going into the landfill through our
recycling initiatives. We currently recycle a number of items, including: clothing, shoes, accessories,
books, cardboard, metals, plastic bags, plastic, electronics, and many other items. Did you know that
we divert approximately 10,000 lbs. a month from the landfill into our recycling programs?
By strengthening and expanding our relationships with recycling partners such as Planet Earth
Recycling, we are assuring the best possible reuse of that product. Through our combined efforts we
can ensure a lighter ecological footprint in the Okanagan.
It is important to remember that we are not a recycling depot or a substitute location for the
landfill, so please be sure the goods you donate are quality items and only donate during business
hours. It costs The Salvation Army each year to remove trash that has been dumped outside our
Thrift Stores. The required cleanup diverts vital funds away from those who most need our support.
Thank you for your cooperation.
