After closing their doors in mid March to help curb the spread of COVID-19, Fred & Betty’s Thrift Store reopened their doors Monday, October 12th!

Hours are 10a-5p, Monday through Saturday, with a special shopping hour on Wednesday mornings from 10-11a for seniors and those most vulnerable to shop. Visit their refreshed store stocked with lots of Halloween costumes, fall sweaters, and fall home decor. Walking or driving by, you’ll notice their new autumn window display artfully made from repurposed items like coffee filters and old book pages.

To allow for a safe shopping experience, COVID protocols are in place including required mask wearing, limited customers inside store to allow for social distance, frequent sanitation while open and after each day, and fitting rooms remain closed for the time being.

Donations are open as well! Donation Days are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during open hours (10a-5p). If you cannot make it those days, call to see if we can set up an appointment time. All clothing and cloth donations MUST be sealed in a trash bag (see our donation list of what we can and can’t accept on our website). Call ahead of time if your donation is large or will require physical assistance, so that we may staff accordingly.

For questions about donations or for large item pick up inquiries, contact or call (805) 593-0255.
