The store was recently moved from their location on Hardy Street near downtown to the much larger and more modern facility. The store is located at 2305 Hardy Street across from McAllisters and Gold Post restaurant.

The store offers slightly used products at bargain prices. Racks and shelves are full of clothes, household goods, books, and more.
