The Thrift Shop was started in 1939 during the Great Depression by the mayor’s wife and 17 ladies. She made them go through their closets and bring their stuff in so people could use it. The ladies would give out clothing to those in need, and they would also hand out bread in bread lines, and as things got better, they would sell items for reasonable prices.

The WSC Thrift Shop is 100% volunteer run.  And  we take donations from the public, during the hours that the store is open.  When items are donated, WSC volunteers sort, price and put the merchandise out on the floor for purchase.

The proceeds from the donations go directly back to the community.  The Waukesha Service Club works with social workers, who provide family assistance to those in need.  Clients can come to the Thrift Shop to choose items for free, and monetary assistance is provided when needed for items such as, food, rent, and gas.

Come in and shop and find terrific deals!  The Thrift Shop offers discounts on a weekly basis along with customer appreciation days, bag days and a free day!  A changeover takes place at the Thrift shop twice a year in which the store is completely cleaned out and the merchandise left on the last day goes to the community for free!

Every Wednesday, senior shoppers 55 years and older receive 25% off.
