Where every purchase is a gift to the world
Thrift shoppers are from all walks of life… They’re quality seekers, deal hunters and inventive creators.
Our thrift shoppers are also difference makers.
Unlike other major thrift shops, at New Hamburg Thrift Centre, all of our proceeds fund the work of Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) programs – so when you purchase a $3 bowl, you’ve helped to fund one of MCC’s 761 local and global projects.
The perk of being a non-profit also means you won’t pay tax on any purchase!
When shopping with us, you get the convenience of department store selection at thrift shop prices. You’re bound to find what you’re looking for – or what you weren’t looking for. There’s new stock arriving daily and the items on the floor are guaranteed to be different every month (if it lasts that long) because of our colour rotation pricing.
For those people looking for the truly unique pieces from the past or present, we also have a Silent Auction. These items are up for bids and last as long as people continue to bid. For full rules and to register as a bidder, drop by the shop. Please ensure you fully inspect items before bidding.
At New Hamburg Thrift Centre we have very creative volunteers who quilt, sew comforters, knit and make mats out of recycled materials. These handmade items are also available for sale in the shop and can be custom made.
Like other retail shops, we have seasonal features with a large selection for Christmas, Halloween, etc. We’re also home to the largest MCC Ontario Perennial Sale which takes place every May.
A perfect way to to share the love of thrift. Load any denomination on a gift card… perfect for friends, family, teachers, caregivers, crafters, neighbours – perfect for the bargain hunter in your life! Our re-loadable gift cards can be used at any MCC Thrift Shop in Ontario! (Includes Thrift on Kent in Kitchener, MCC Thrift & Gift in Elmira, MCC New to You in Milverton, MCC Care & Share in Stouffville, MCC Christian Benefit Shop in St. Catharines, and MCC Thrift on Mill in Leamington.)
Colour Rotation – It’s a new store every time you come!
We have new items arriving in the store every day! Each article is priced with a colour tag to indicate when it went into the store. Most fly off the shelves in a matter of days. But, this is how we help you one step further to get the best deals in town. Any item that sits more than two weeks is automatically reduced to HALF PRICE. And to further your savings, we give the article one last chance. Anything left on week four is reduced to our our clearance price of 75% off the original price.
Shop often – you never know what you’re going to find!
