Value Village opening a second Greater Victoria store


Hey thrift shopping enthusiasts, get ready for some exciting news!

Another Value Village is set to open soon in the capital region.

The thrift store chain is expected to open a curated selection of goods in a boutique-style retail concept, providing a more streamlined shopping experience.

The new store will open later this year at Colwood’s Colwood Corners development.

Victoria Buzz has reached out to Value Village for more specific details on what customers can expect with this new location but did not hear back in time for publication.

According to details online, the company’s “boutique” offering will have fewer categories of items than the main Value Village in downtown Victoria because it’s a smaller space.

Most Value Villages require loading bays and warehouse-like square footage to accommodate all of the receiving and sorting that takes place.

The company, well-liked by bargain hunters and thrifty shoppers, has faced criticism in recent years due to its elevated prices and disassociation from charitable causes.

“We are a for-profit company that champions reuse. Shopping in our stores doesn’t support any nonprofit,” the company notes on its site. “We pay nonprofits for your stuff, helping them fund programs in our communities.”

Are you looking forward to the second location opening in Colwood? Let us know in the comment section below.
