The Value Village in Stonebridge opened in March 2012. They have a big beautiful new store there. They have the usual gently used clothing, shoes and boots, toys, household items, book, furniture, and kitchen and bath items. During Halloween they have a huge selection of new Halloween costume, accessories, make up and home decor. And ofcourse, you can always find used items for the made up costume. Their inventory is ever changing so you can go there several times a month and find great new things. You can get complete outfits there that reflect your personal style.

To get there, you can head south on Clarence Avenue, cross the overpass, and take a left at the second set of lights. Then turn left just up ahead then turn right in to Value Village Stonebridge.
Value Village was started by Savers, a US chain of thrift stores, opening their first Canadian store as Value Village in Vancouver in 1980. From their website:
“Savers is no ordinary thrift store. As a leader and pioneer in the retail thrift industry, we’re a place where people from all backgrounds love to shop for great selection, deals and treasures. But there’s also a higher purpose for what we do.
Savers was founded in 1954 on principles such as giving back and providing opportunities—core values we still embrace today. Our more than 140 nonprofit alliances share this thinking and inspire us with their work. Partnering with local charities is not a byproduct of our business—it’s how we do business. So when you shop at Savers, you help support many local community programs.
Another key difference is the relationship we have with our customers. We’re constantly reinventing ourselves into what they tell us is important. Unlike other large retailers, we’re a privately operated chain and take pride in getting to know the people who shop with us—often times on a first-name basis. There’s nothing we love more than hearing their stories on “art of thrifting.”
In our 56-year history, shoppers have come to expect fun and surprise with each visit to our stores. We make it easy to find bargains on every aisle and our stores are filled with current looks, authentic vintage finds, housewares, collectibles, furniture and unexpected treasures at every turn. Our nonprofit alliances drop off thousands of items every day so no two shopping trips are ever the same. Our incredible inventory comprises unique, quality used goods as well as new merchandise, including closeouts on great items not found at other thrift stores.”

On my mom’s visit to Saskatoon she insisted I take her around town to check out stores that included The Salvation Army Thrift Store located at 410 42a Street East just north of Circle Drive.
We had fun looking around the store and my mom even tried out an old piano. You can see that in the video. The Thrift Store has all kinds of things to buy including men’s clothing, women’s clothing, children’s clothing, footwear and accessories, books and magazines, muli-media (including some old records), furniture, housewares and kitchen ware, collectables, bedding and new mattresses, electronics and toys. We did not buy anything on this visit but many people find cool things there all the time. Most of the merchandise is gently used and donated but they “select only the best merchandise to ensure you get the highest quality items every day”.
They have some special deals for students and seniors and they even sell gift certificates. They also have a coupon corner on their website where you can get some good savings.
The Salvation Army Thrift Stores do a lot for the communities they are located in sending a message of compassion and hope.
There are two stores in Saskatoon but we only visited the one. You can visit their website listed below for more information about The Salvation Army and their mission with the Thrift Stores.
