Why Shop Here?
You will help us fund LOCAL organizations to help LOCAL residents who need our help. You will be going GREEN by recycling these items. EVERYONE SHOPS HERE FROM ALL ECONOMIC BACKGROUNDS. Shopping second hand is HIP! This is not your grandmothers second hand store. Our styles are current!
Why Donate Here?
Keep your high quality donations local. The more we sell, the more we donate to local charities. That means your high-quality donations are benefiting the community. We are recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c) non-profit charity. Our staff is 100% volunteer, which means all proceeds go to charity.
Why isn’t the store opened more often?
Because we need more volunteers! We would love to be open Monday and Tuesday and even weeknights. That’s why we need YOU! Contact us to expand our hours.
Can you pick up my donations?
Currently we cannot pick up your donations. We are seeking volunteers who can make local pick-ups and bring the donations to the store.
What do you do with the clothes that don’t / can’t sell?
We recycle them! See here for our recycling program.
Can I drop off clothes with rips, tears, stains, broken zippers, etc
NO. We can’t sell them. SORRY. The Salvation Army in Jersey City has a RAG ONLY Program. If you separate clothes from shoes and place them in a large green garbage bags they can be dropped off at the Salvation Army Family Store in Downtown Jersey City. Please let them know they are for the Rag Only program and the items are not sell-able. This will save them time and energy from sorting them. Click here for our recycling program.

Who donates to your store?
Our donations come from local people of all walks of life, including our town’s many young professionals, most of whom simply need to clean out their closets for whatever reason. Our styles are current, with many name-brand and designer items, ranging from Gap, Banana Republic, Nike, Lululemon, and Ann Taylor, to Kate Spade, Tahari, Coach, Eileen Fisher, Ferragamo, and more. We have a “Wow” rack that features many of the designer items that come in regularly.
Do you have parking?
Alas, no. We are your typical Hoboken business, in that regard.
Are you wheelchair accessible?
Unfortunately, not very. There is a step up into the front door, and the shop is quite tight.
