Inclement weather conditions may cause closure or reduced hours for donation services. These closures may occur with little or no notice. Thank you for your understanding.
Donating to ReTails is now even easier thanks to our partnership with Resupply. They'll pick up your gently used clothes, furniture, and household goods and deliver them right to ReTails where they'll find a new home! Your items will not only find a great new home, you'll also help the animals of the Humane Society for Southwest Washington.
Take a look at the information below and learn more at the Resupply website.
- Pickups within 48 hours.

Tips for Easy Donating
We know you have choices when you donate. Thank you for considering ReTails! Make your donation experience easy - please consider the following:
- Remember the ReTails Golden Rule: If you would consider giving it to a friend, then the item is most likely in good condition and appropriate to donate to ReTails Thrift Store.
- We do not have a repair facility. Please, no items that are stained, broken, or are in poor condition.
- Save time when donating: have your items sorted and ready to give to our donation staff. If possible, please have your items in a bag, box, or container that you're also willing to donate.
- Please be patient during busy times. Our staff is working hard to make the process as efficient as possible.
Please do not dump unwanted items at ReTails. Doing so means higher fees for disposal of waste and less revenue to support the dogs and cats.
