St. John’s Opportunity Shop (Thrift Store)

Op Shop Reopens!

The St. John’s Opportunity Shop is currently open on an adjusted schedule for indoor and outdoor sales as well as for accepting donations (see details below).

Come browse through the full range of Shop treasures, from clothing and jewelry to household items and small furniture. We hold sales each Wednesday on certain kinds of items. Follow us on Facebook or stop by the store and sign up for our mailing list to learn what items will be on sale each week.

Please pack donations in boxes or bags that can be left at the shop-it will not be possible to unpack individual items.

The Shop is not able to accept items on consignment just yet.

Masks are required at all times.
