We are currently open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday - Friday.

Masks are required to enter the store.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Second Chance Thrift Store is vital to the continuation of Steps to HOPE's programs designed to break and end the generational cycle of domestic and sexual abuse in our community. As Second Chance provides much of Steps to HOPE's operating capital, we know all too well that we simply could not keep our doors open without your patronage and tax-deductible donations. Please call 828-894-2373 to schedule a pick up of your gently used merchandise. Also, make plans to stop by and see why Second Chance is often referred to as "the Belk's of Columbus."
