The Clark University Thrift Store is a hub of creativity and sustainability on Clark’s campus. Started in 2010 by two students, Alexa Lightner ’11, ’12, and somebody, after winning funding from Clark Tank (formerly known as Ureka), the pair quickly set down roots to become a staple on campus and the community.

The store sells affordable, second-hand clothing and hand-crafted goods from Clark student businesses. Student employees run the thrift store and it is open to the Clark University community and the general public.

The store also hosts regular events such as the yearly fashion show and art show, school bands, crafting and sewing workshops, jewelry repair, and more.

The Clark Community Thrift Store accepts donations of all clothing and small housewares! We cannot accept bedding and large individual items.  Donation bins can also be found in student dorms.
