Crossway Community Thrift Store is a non-profit organization based in Canmore which provides its customers with a great place to shop for affordable necessities such as furniture, clothing and much much more.
Proceeds from sales go back into the community. By shopping and donating you help fund local school scholarships, subsidized homegrown sports teams, and provide props & costumes for community theatre projects. Two of our biggest projects are the Jacket Frost and Back to School programs which have also been helping families for more than 20 years.
The Thrift Store is a social hub in Canmore, where on any given day, friends and neighbors meet while dropping off donations or shopping. We are well-regarded as part of the Bow Valley's recycling efforts and are grateful to a very supportive community which provides us with fantastic items which we can offer as a "green" alternative to other retail shopping. We have had visitors from as far away as Europe, from the southern U.S and Asia; be sure to put us on your "things to do in the Canadian Rockies" list!
We Need Your Help
Our store has the same overhead costs as any other store; profit or non-profit. In fact, with thrift store prices and the same overhead, we could not stay open without our amazing volunteers! Additional programs rely on the help of others in our communtity like you.
