Quadra Thrift MOVED up the street to 2644 Quadra

Effective Jan 27, 2021, come check out our bigger location at 2644 Quadra St. (site of the former Party Crashers store)…. Across from Fairways, and only 6 doors from our previous location.

We’re still adding a few finishing touches (such as new exterior paint and signs) but the shop is open for you.

LOTS of GREAT DEALS, CONVENIENT PARKING,  and MORE SPACE (which means room for MORE ITEMS for sale). As at all Beacon thrift shops, sales proceeds support our charity’s local community programs and services.

Please drop by to say “hi.” We look forward to welcoming you!

Shops & donations depot are open

Beacon Thrift Shops are now open Monday – Saturday, 10 am – 4 pm (except Statutory Holidays). (Thank you for understanding that these hours are shorter than before, to allow for extra cleaning and restocking during the pandemic.)

Please note, measures have been put in place in-store for health and safety purposes: limited number of people in store at all times, shorter hours to allow for cleaning and restocking, debit and credit card payments are preferred, we regret there is no access to change rooms, and all sales are final.

We also thank you for your cooperation in wearing a mask while at our shops, to help protect customers, donors, volunteers and staff.

Donors: please follow our Contactless Donation Protocols:

  • all donations arrive in SEALED cardboard boxes, as we will be quarantining them for 5 days prior to processing them 
  • donors will be asked to put their donations in boxes that can be sealed
  • please refer to our Accepted Items list
  • please maintain 2 metres separation for your safety and the safety of our volunteers and staff

All donations in Sidney will be accepted from 10 am – 4 pm, Monday to Saturday at 9760 Fourth St.

All donations in Brentwood Bay will be accepted 10 am – 4 pm, Monday to Saturday at 7060 West Saanich Rd.

In Victoria, donations will be accepted 10 am – 4 pm, Monday to Saturday at Quadra  Thrift (2644 Quadra St.) and Pandora Thrift (715 Pandora St.)

We’re also happy to pick up furniture donations! Please call 250-656-6828 to arrange.

Thank you for thinking of us; we look forward to seeing you, and greatly appreciate your support!


Beacon Community Services’ Thrift Shops offer affordable, convenient shopping for your entire family. And they’re a great place to donate items you no longer need. Because loyal donors and shoppers help our Greater Victoria community, too!

Many non-Beacon thrift shops are private, or they direct only a very small percentage of sales to the charity they claim to represent. We’re proud that Beacon Community Services’ thrift shop proceeds are 100% dedicated to not-for-profit programs and services — and we’re grateful for the community support that makes them possible.

Our shops fund LOCAL programs
We also pick up donated furniture: call 250-656-6828

For more than 30 years, Thrift Shop proceeds have funded many LOCAL Beacon services and programs. Services like the Out of the Rain shelter for homeless youth. Kids’ literacy and play programs. Quality care for seniors living with dementia. And more.

We’re also proud to host free training programs at some Beacon Thrift Shops. Our shops are encouraging places where you can learn the skills you need for working in the retail industry.
