Shop with Confidence
Hearts Thrift Store provides quality clothing, accessories, shoes, and household items at affordable prices. Located on Tonawanda Street in Buffalo, Hearts Thrift Store is in a poverty stricken part of the city where residents do not have transportation to the suburbs to shop in malls. When shoppers walk through the front doors, they are welcomed into a relaxing environment with soothing Christian music and helpful Hearts team members.
Hearts Thrift Store is a secondhand store of convenience for everyone. Quality clothes and accessories are just the beginning - find personal care items, toiletries, and jewelry for every occasion. Explore beyond the main room to the men’s room and housewares, where you will find bargains on quality clothing for the whole family, as well as toys, home decor, games, and free books.
After expenses, all proceeds from Hearts Thrift Store are used to support the operation of our Mobile Soup Kitchen and our Hearts Harvest Pantry and Cafe, located just across the street from the thrift store. All operations are designed to help meet the needs of individuals and families in the local community.

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.
