Westminster Thrift Shop’s Mission is to provide quality, recycled merchandise at affordable prices to local families; to care for creation by providing an outlet for recycled goods. It 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. Over the course of a season, approximately 50 volunteers provide about 4,500 hours of service. 

Thrift Shop Reopening Update

The Westminster Thrift Shop Board of Directors has been planning to announce an early September reopening date of the Westminster Thrift Shop.  However, the thrift shop incurred flooding damages resulting from the recent heavy rains.  The board is working with a restoration company, therefore our reopening date now depends on their schedule, and several other factors. We are asking for your patience in holding your donations for the thrift shop at this time.  Please review the NEW DONATION GUIDELINES on the next page to see what donations we are presently accepting. Also, please note the thrift shop's new workday and business hours. Thank You for your continued support.
