Community Thrift Store of Portage County


"We’re getting a lot of families and that really bothers me," shares Shari Denenberg, director of Community Thrift Store of Portage County. "It all bothers me. But I can’t stand seeing kids in need. It’s changed very little."

Our pantries are still in crisis mode from the pandemic, but you can help! Read more in this fantastic article from Stevens Point Journal Media. #SolvingHungerLocally #StocktheShelves
Hi there, just a question, am I allowed to donate CRT TVs to your store?
Don't bother stopping here if a medical condition prevents you from wearing a mask.
It is one half hour before your store closes. When I rang the bell on the side of the store, to leave a donation, an employee came storming out, was extremely rude, informed me that the store closes SOON and donation time was CLOSED!!. (It is one half hour BEFORE you close!) Not a thank you from the guy... nor anything else ...just absolutely rudness and arrogance.
Be sure you will NOT be getting a single item from me as a donation.... nor will I patronize your store.
Please...REFRAIN your staff on customer service.
Your open for donations? What hours? Anything specific? Or things you don’t take?
Please post what donations you are accepting and when. Also if you have new hours.
10:47 on a Saturday morning. Our car won't start due to dead battery. Buster is a little P-ed off to not be at Community Thrift Store *right now*! He is taking it out on his stuffies.

We are a non-profit organization that offers gently used clothing, furniture & housewares at low prices to help those in our community. The proceeds from these sales support our food pantry and a voucher program.

See our hours below.

I am sorry to anyone who feels that our mask mandate is unfair. Our policy has been and will continue to be that masks or shields are necessary when in our store and at the pantry for the sake of our patrons. So please, if you feel you cannot wear a mask or shield then choose some other place to shop. Anger and threats will not change our policy!


Greet customers, answer questions, help schedule pick-ups and deliveries and run cash register.

It's past Election Day and Covid-19 is not is worse than ever! You are welcome at our store but you must wear a mask the correct way (over your mouth and nose) at all times!


I'm sorry if you are angry with us regarding our mask policy. Many of our customers are elderly and/or immune compromised and we are trying to act in the best interests of the majority of our customers. Most medical authorities agree that if you are too sick to wear masks then you are too sick to be out shopping. We will continue to do our best to protect our customers!


We need someone immediately who likes people and wants to work 3 to 5 days per week (some Saturdays). You need experience cashiering and must be dependable! If this is you, please fill out an application online or stop in the store to fill one out.


Due to Covid-19 our store has had to shorten hours and work with less staff. We are also asking that everyone wear a mask. Most people respect these changes and are supportive. Our hours are 11 to 4 Monday thru Saturday with houseware and furniture donations being accepted on those days from 11:30 to 3. Clothing and linens are only being accepted Thursday through Saturday 11:30 to 3. All clothing and linens must be in small boxes, washed and folded. We are doing the best that we can right now. Thank you for respecting our limitations!


Our donation hours are Monday thru Saturday 11:30 until 3:00! Clothing and linens are accepted Thurs., Fri. & Sat. only. Please see clothing and linen restrictions in the post below.


Please do not come to shop without a mask! We are trying to protect everyone!
