New Horizons Thrift Store

Creating a dynamic retail environment that fosters a spirit of community, provides for capacity building opportunities for volunteers, and improves employment related skills . . .


New Horizons Thrift Store

New Horizons Thrift Store is a unique place; it’s a community space first and a retail store second. We are working towards a sustainable future by diverting useful items from landfills. The store itself is operated by volunteers who are learning new skills to enhance their employment opportunities, and it’s a place for people to connect and experience community.

New Horizons sells used clothing, toys, housewares, linens, sports goods, books and much more.  The funds raised through the sales are utilized to not only operate New Horizons but also to support the various programs of Welcome Inn.

COVID Update: Due to the pandemic, New Horizons Thrift Store has been temporarily closed. We are, however, excited to annouce that New Horizons will be reopening in a new loctaion in the coming months. Stay tuned for our GRAND REOPENING!

Funding for the expansion of our thrift store and its grand reopening is being provided by the Hamilton Community Foundation.
