Shop with Confidence

The original Hearts Thrift Store offers a wide variety of quality clothing, accessories, shoes, and household items at prices that won't break the bank. Conveniently located on Tonawanda Street in Buffalo, our original store provides a shopping solution for residents of a poverty-stricken area who may not have access to malls and suburban shopping centers in Western New York. When you step inside our stores, you'll be greeted by soothing Christian music and our friendly Hearts team members, creating a relaxing environment for your shopping experience. 

Our location on Tonawanda Street, which has been in business since 1997, has become a fabric of the community. It is a convenient one-stop-shop for everyone, offering not only quality men's clothing and accessories, but also personal care items, toiletries, and jewelry for any occasion at affordable prices. Beyond the main room, you'll discover our men's clothing room, where you can find a wide range of charitable men's clothing items, donated shoes, children's books, and housewares. You'll discover incredible bargains on quality clothing for the entire family, as well as toys, home decor, games, and free books.

All profits from Hearts Thrift Stores go towards supporting our various outreach programs, many of which are located on the Hearts Campus. Our operations are designed to meet the needs of individuals and families in our local WNY community. By shopping with us, you'll not only find amazing deals, but you'll also be supporting our mission to improve the quality of life for those in need.

Our new store will offer the same great selection of donated quality clothing, accessories, shoes, and household items at affordable prices, along with the warm and welcoming environment that our customers have come to love. We can't wait to expand our impact in the Tonawanda community and continue supporting our outreach programs. When you shop at the Hearts Thrift Stores, you help support our mission.

What folks are saying about us:

The services that these people are doing are just amazing. Not only do they sell donated clothes for super cheap, they also will give out clothes (primarily for men) for free if you ask them to. On top of that, when asked if they take food donations they said that they have a kitchen that they make and source food out of to a soup kitchen. Just a wonderful establishment Buffalo should be proud of housing.

Love going here. Always come out with a shopping cart full and don't pay much. The staff is very friendly. They have a basket full of free stuff. They also have a pantry in the same lot and the staff is just as friendly. Today they gave out Turkeys for Thanksgiving and I made them cupcakes to accompany their package. Every last Wednesday of the month from 1-3pm they have a mobile pantry to distribute food and other items.

Never been to the thrift shop, but I'm reviewing because I go through my clothing once or twice a year and always donate the bag to a red Hearts for The Homeless bin. I really appreciate that these items stay in the WNY area and help those in need.
