Welcome to Westminster Thrift Shop

Westminster's Thrift Shop was opened in the borough of West Chester in 1990 for the purpose of raising money to support the building fund for a new church building to be built on Pleasant Grove Road, just south of West Chester. Shortly after the first contribution was made, Session approved a motion to divide all contributions evenly between mission and the building fund. Today, all donated funds go to the Thrift Shop outreach fund. 

Thrift Shop is excited to move to their new location at Gay Street plaza in the borough of West Chester. Opening day will be September 11 at 1pm.
