There's a new thrift shop in Tacoma where you can get discounts, help folks in need

Aug. 7—Tacoma Rescue Mission receives an overwhelming amount of donations to help its clients out of poverty.

The homeless shelter nonprofit came up with a solution to maximize all of the donated clothes and household items: a thrift shop. Mission Thrift, 2502 6th Ave., opened last month. The store is open 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday to Friday, 9 a.m.- 6 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday.

Darrin Miller, social enterprise director, said Tacoma Rescue Mission uses at most 3 percent of items donated. The thrift shop will allow the rescue mission "to make the most of donations that we receive and be able to generate revenue and go back to our clients and those in need in the community," he said.

Mission Thrift sells men's, women's and children's clothes, including sports jerseys, toys and games, shoes, purses, home decor, kitchen appliances and dishes, lamps, furniture and more. Customers can come across rare finds, like a Star Wars spatula.
