Brightmoor Free Store

At the Brightmoor Free Store, we are providing new and gently used clothing, household goods, and books.  Everyone is welcome.  Everything is freely given.

More than 1,700 people have shopped at the Brightmoor Free Store since it opened in January 2014, with 60-100 people shopping here each week.

The Free Store is now open once a week for your convenience:

Saturdays, 9:30am – 1:00pm

There is also a hot meal served on most days that the store is open.

Information for shoppers

Each shopper becomes a member of the Brightmoor Free Store, filling out a membership card the first time they shop. There is no charge for this card.

Then shoppers are able to select clothing for every member of the family as well as choosing household goods and books. Each shopper will be able to take home a certain number of items each week, so shoppers are encouraged to come back to the store several times during the month to fill family needs.

We welcome shoppers to join us as volunteers to help prepare the store for others.

Information for volunteers

Individuals and groups are invited to join us as volunteers for…

  • Serving beverages and snacks.
  • Welcoming customers at the door, collecting their membership cards or assisting them to fill out new cards.
  • Assisting customers with shopping in the store.
  • Assisting with check-out, bagging items as they are counted and assisting customers in carrying items to their cars.
  • Preparing and serving a hot lunch.
  • Clean up.  Since many of the volunteers have spent the entire day at the Free Store, it is helpful to have a handful of volunteers who come to the store about the time it closes to assist with cleaning up.
