As a ministry business of Open Arms Mission, we are dedicated to providing quality used merchandise at a reasonable price to support the mission's ministry efforts. Our goal is to do this through Christian business effort, honest finances and compassionate hearts.
The store on Crowland Avenue opened in 2008 with basic shelving, tables and a small furniture area in the back. Each year we have expanded, added new displays and racks to maximize the space we have been blessed with.
In January 2012, Open Arms Mission purchased a warehouse property on Forks Rd. with the hopes that part of the warehousing would be for the food bank and part for Redeemed Goods.
We are now using 6000 sq feet of the warehouse as the Redeemed Goods Donation Centre and for sales of larger items such as furniture and appliances. Donors can bring donations to "door 4" Tuesday though Friday at the Forks Rd. location. Our warehouse is open for sales from Tuesday to Friday from 10:00am to 4:00pm and on Saturdays from 9:00am to 1:00pm
As part of our ministry, Redeemed Goods provides emergency assistance of necessity items to mission clients. Vouchers are given out by the Open Arms Mission Centre Manager and value/items are determined by examining each case.
