Our Thrift Store
Where Are We?
We operate a retail thrift store at 37B Main Street
(Route 103), Ludlow, VT. The thrift store hours are Monday-Saturday 10 AM - 4 PM. We are located in a building behind the Ludlow Community Center. Turn at the military tank that is parked in front of the Community Center. Follow the dirt driveway to your right, alongside the Community Center, to the rear of the complex.
We are in the large brick building at the end of the drive.

What Do We Sell?
We sell clothing, shoes, housewares, small appliances, books, toys, games, small furniture and linens. Proceeds from sales are used to pay the operating costs associated with our food and financial assistance programs, and to provide funds to distribute directly to those in need. NOTE: WE ACCEPT CASH OR CHECKS ONLY. Prices change seasonally and are subject to change without notice. Please see our current price list below.
Where Does Our Merchandise Come From?
All of our merchandise is donated by the public. We are a Section 501 (c)(3) charity and donations are tax deductible. We accept donations as outlined below, but we reserve the right to refuse any items that we cannot sell. Please read the "Thrift Store Donation Guidelines" below for more details.
While we appreciate intent of all who wish to give us items, we do find that broken, torn, stained and worn out items actually cost us time and effort to dispose of. Please use good judgment in donating to us. We have had to throw away many, many donations because they were left outside in the weather. We are happy to arrange for large donations at a mutually convenient time. Please call us at (802) 228-3663.

Black River Good Neighbor Services greatly appreciates the generous outpouring of donations we receive on a daily basis. We would like to be able to take any and all donations that come in. However, our customers trust in us to sell safe items that are in good/working condition. We must pay to dispose of items that do not meet these standards and it is at the expense of our many other programs that we offer. We appreciate our customers and communities continued support and understanding, and if there are any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us at 802-228-3663.
