Value Village Opens a New Store in Mississauga

Value Village grand opening offers exciting secondhand shopping experience and a new store to house Community Donation Centre benefiting the Canadian Diabetes Association

October 6, 2011 – Value Village, the international chain with more than 270 locations across Canada, the U.S. and Australia, opens its second store in Mississauga. The new store offers great deals on thousands of unique items while benefiting its nonprofit partner, the Canadian Diabetes Association. The grand opening of its Mississauga location kicked off on Thursday, October 6, with an 8:30 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Value Village executives and representatives from the Canadian Diabetes Association.

“We’re excited to open our second store in Mississauga,” said Dale Debusschere, the new store manager. “This will be the 13th Value Village in the Toronto area, and we can’t wait to see our fantastic customers come out and discover the great finds we’ll offer. We’re also thrilled to expand our longstanding partnership with the Canadian Diabetes Association, which began in 1985.”

Carrying everything from men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and accessories, to housewares, electronics and furniture, each Value Village stocks more than 5,000 new items daily and has over 100,000 unique items on the sales floor at any given time, ensuring customers continuously find a refreshed assortment of quality, value goods. At 31,885-square feet, the location will also house a Community Donation Centre, providing a convenient place for residents to drop off their reusable clothing and household goods free of charge. Value Village pays the Canadian Diabetes Association for every donated item, turning otherwise unused goods into sustainable revenue that supports their programs and services in the local community.

The new store comes in conjunction with the ever increasing thrift shopping trend, which is one of the fastest growing retail segments. Lifestyle, economy and social trends have contributed to the growth, including the popularity of do-it-yourself projects, renewed interest in vintage clothing, and importantly, environmentally and budget-conscientious consumers. Last year alone, Value Village and its nonprofit partners kept more than 500 million pounds of unused goods from ending up in landfills.

Special grand opening activities will begin Thursday, October 6 and continue through Saturday, October 8, including the chance to win one of five $100 Value Village gift certificates. The Mississauga store and Community Donation Centre, located in the former Price Chopper space at 70 Bristol Road E., Mississauga, Ontario, will be open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm and Sunday 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

  1. Scuze ca scriu in romana, dar mi-e mai la indemana acum :) Nu stiu cum e in Canada cu produsele si calitatea lor, dar cum am mai zis, in SUA e ceva de groaza. Aveam senzatia ca totusi se triaza marfa, dar cand vezi mormane de articole de lenjerie intima, electronice de genul filtre de cafea, super folosite si murdare, decoratiuni pline de praf si mizerie, iar cireasa de pe tort - o perie de par electrica plina de par..... ti se intoarce stomacul pe dos crede-ma. Dupa parerea mea, sunt un focar de infectii. Nu stiu cum se descurca angajatele cand au de pus pe rafturi toate mizeriile alea. E de apreciat gestul lor ca doneaza banii, insa mi se pare de prost gust ca se pun toate gunoaiele pe raft. Chiar au senzatia ca o sa le cumpere cineva??

    Aici din ce am vazut, singurele magazine in care se poate intra sunt cele de genul consignment unde nu se accepta decat obiecte spalate, fara pete si fara defecte. Asa mi se pare si normal.

  2. Buna Roxy, aici in Toronto poti sa gasesti lucruri faine la Value Village, dar trebuie sa cauti mult si sa ai rabdare, ca in orice magazin de acest gen. De multe ori e un adevarat treasure hunting, cand mergi acolo, nu stii ce cauti, pentru ca nu poti sa cauti ceva anume, cumperi ce gasesti fain.

    Ultima oara am fost la un magazin Value Village aici in Toronto acum un an; am gasit doua bluzite dragute; dar am facut un efort de rabdare sa le caut. :))) Mi-am mai luat si cateva carti, la $2 si $4 bucata, care la librarie sunt de obicei $10 sau $15. La mobile si electrocasnice nu m-am uitat, de obicei imi cumpar noi.

    Mississauga este o suburbie a Toronto-ului, si la magazinul asta nou de acolo care tocmai s-a deschis si despre care am scris in articol n-am ajuns; dar oricum, daca e sa merg la Value Village pentru un pic de thrift shopping, merg aici in Toronto, aproape de mine, si nu la o locatie in suburbie.

  3. Cred ca mai depinde si de locatie, e posibil ca la unele magazine Value Village marfa este de calitate mai buna decat la altele.

  4. Buna Haine xxxxl, din pacate Vallue Village nu vinde si online; trebuie sa fii in SUA sau Canada ca sa cumperi din magazinele lor.
