Too Good To Be Threw back in downtown Courtenay with second location

The new store opened Tuesday at 456 5th Street

After a devastating fire that destroyed Too Good To Be Threw in January, the Comox Valley Transition Society is bouncing back.

In March, CVTS opened the thrift store’s new location on Puntledge Road, and on Tuesday, they officially opened their second location downtown on Fifth Street.

Heather Ney, executive director of the CVTS, says the support from the community has been amazing after the fire, which meant their much smaller Puntledge Road location was soon overflowing with donations, necessitating a second space.

“We’re really grateful that the community has continued to support us both by donating and by shopping at our Puntledge location,” she said. “We really couldn’t do justice to all the items in such a small space so we decided to open a fashion only store.”

The downtown shop, located at 456 5th St., will be dedicated to selling men’s women’s and children’s clothing, as well as shoes, accessories and jewelry.

The Puntledge store, located at 239 Puntledge Road, will continue to have these categories, as well as housewares, home decor, toys and books.

All donations can be dropped off at either location but both TGTBT stores are still unable to accept furniture, hardware, sporting goods or electronics due to space constraints.

Nay says since their Puntledge location opened in March, the store has been bringing in about 75 per cent of the business they had been doing at the original store. With the new downtown location opened, she hopes to see more foot traffic from downtown shoppers.

The hours at both locations are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
