Our Thrift Store
The SOS Children’s Village Thrift Store Foundation location in the community of Steveston in Richmond first opened its doors in 1992, as a way to raise funds for the creation of an SOS Children’s Village. In 1999, the store expanded to its present size on Moncton Street in Steveston. Today, approximately 50 volunteers work in or support that store. The store is run by two managers and a team of approximately five to eight volunteers each day of the week.
Our Dedicated Team
Manager of Steveston Store
Working at SOS thrift stores allows me to combine years of experience in retail since 2001, my training and passion for creative merchandising, with the meaningful work of SOS Children’s Village BC. My goal is to increase our funds to help more kids, to create a welcoming work environment for our valuable volunteers, and to offer our customers a unique shopping experience by providing a well presented eco-friendly second hand store. At the end of the day I want to see only the smiles of our volunteers and feel customers’ satisfaction by having done a good deed at our store. I’d like to build a community within our store to share our stories, to give back our appreciations, and to connect with our neighbourhoods.
