MCC Thrift response to COVID-19

To our valued customers. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our shoppers, volunteers and staff are of primary concern. For that reason, some MCC Thrift shops have made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend operations or reduce hours. 

With your support, MCC Thrift is making a difference in our local communities and caring for the environment, while supporting vulnerable people worldwide through MCC's work in relief, development and peacebuilding.

We encourage you to find ways to care for yourself and your neighbours during these extraordinary times.


Here you will find a list of shop operations changes. This list will be updated as we receive new information from our shops.
If you don't see your shop listed, please contact them directly for more information.
