Abby's House Thrift Shop

Please note that the Abby's House Thrift Shop will be relocating to a new location while renovations are being conducted at 52 High Street.

The new location will be at 875-R Main Street, Worcester, next to St. Peters School, the rear of the Main South CDC Building.

The store will be closed on March 26th and will reopen at the new location on April 2nd. This is a temporary move, and we will be back at High Street in September. As always, we appreciate your support of Abby's.

The Abby's House Thrift Shop continues to be our largest single source of revenue. All of the profits from sales at the Thrift Shop fund our shelter, housing and advocacy programs. The Thrift Shop is full of quality clothing, accessories, home goods, and bargain-priced cosmetics. We encourage you to visit the store today, not only to donate clothing and home goods, but to add some great pieces to your wardrobe!


Monday through Thursday: 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Fridays: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Saturdays: 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Thrift Shop is closed on all federal holidays. When Worcester Public Schools declares a snow day, the Thrift Shop will be closed.

In case of impending inclement weather, please call ahead to make sure we're open: (508) 756-5486 extension 12.
