Abby's House Thrift Shop

Please note that in observance of the holiday, our Thrift Shop will be closing at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 22nd and will remain closed through the rest of the week. We will reopen on Monday, November 27th.

The Abby's House Thrift Shop continues to be our largest single source of revenue. All of the profits from sales at the Thrift Shop fund our shelter, housing and advocacy programs. The Thrift Shop is full of quality clothing, accessories, home goods, and bargain-priced cosmetics. We encourage you to visit the store today, not only to donate clothing and home goods, but to add some great pieces to your wardrobe!


Monday through Thursday: 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Fridays: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Saturdays: 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Thrift Shop is closed on all federal holidays. When Worcester Public Schools declares a snow day, the Thrift Shop will be closed.

In case of impending inclement weather, please call ahead to make sure we're open: (508) 756-5486 extension 12.
