New Thrift Store Doubles in Size

Huge bargains in huge outlet

The RAPS Animal Hospital Thrift Store is now one of Metro Vancouver’s largest outlets of its kind. The newly opened location has just expanded to a second floor, doubling the retail space.

Located at 9040 Francis Road (corner of Garden City), is the second in the RAPS Thrift Store chain. The original, long-standing thrift store, at 8260 Granville Avenue (just east of Number 3 Road) remains a destination for smart shoppers, with 100% of revenue supporting the RAPS Cat Sanctuary. All revenue from the new store supports the not-for-profit RAPS Animal Hospital.

Unlike many thrift stores, some of which are run by for-profit companies, every dollar of profit from both RAPS Thrift Stores goes directly into services for animals.

With almost 4,500-square-feet of retail space at the new store, we’re issuing a call-out for contributions. Is it time to clean out the garage, the spare bedroom or closet? Donating to the RAPS Thrift Store is a great way to make your home less cluttered and make your heart feel good. Because of the ample size of the new store, we are able to showcase a wide range of furniture and other household items. If you know someone who is starting out in their first apartment, send them our way for affordable furnishings. If you know someone who is downsizing, let them know that we are on the lookout for gently used, quality household goods.

Downstairs at the new store, you will find our furniture, electronics and small appliances.

Upstairs is where you can peruse a vast range of clothing for men, women and kids, as well as smaller housewares and knickknacks.

Here’s the kicker: RAPS Animal Hospital VIP cardholders get a whopping 25% off at both RAPS Thrift Stores. As if our amazingly low prices weren’t incredible enough. Are you a VIP yet? Register online today!
