New Life Furniture Bank is pleased to announce the opening of New Life Furniture Thrift Store, coming June 1 to the Sharonville Plaza.

New Life Furniture Thrift Store will help advance the furniture bank’s mission of turning empty

houses into homes for those starting over from significant life challenges, while supporting the

organization’s financial sustainability. This will be the region’s only home furnishings-focused

thrift store, providing a highly curated shopping experience for affordable home furnishings and

hidden treasures in a clean, brightly lit retail location that spans 15,000 square feet.

“After years of planning and preparation, we are thrilled to announce the opening of our thrift

store,” said Dana Saxton, executive director of New Life Furniture Bank. “We are so grateful to

the community foundations and partners whose contributions have made this endeavor possible

including The Carol Ann & Ralph V. Haile Foundation, The Mayerson Foundation, Crossroads

Church and the George B. Riley Foundation.”

Similar to New Life Furniture Bank, New Life Furniture Thrift Store is dependent on donations of

gently used furniture, home décor, and accessories. “The thrift store will not only help meet the

need for quality, affordable used furniture in our community, but will also be a wonderful

shopping destination for the increasing number of people who are looking for ways to support

sustainability and re-use of resources in our communities,” said Saxton.

The thrift store will allow the organization to accept a wider variety of donations. “Community

members can donate everything from gently used furniture to functioning appliances and

exercise equipment, to kitchen wares, décor and even clothing. The need for furniture continues

to rise, and we’re looking forward to helping more people enjoy the comforts of a bed, couch or

kitchen table. The thrift store will help us achieve that, in addition to being a great place to

shop,” said Saxton.

Saxton emphasized that the requests for furniture have increased significantly in 2022 while

donations have remained consistent. “If you’re spring cleaning, please contact us and we’ll pick

up your donation!” she offered.
