The Store

Top Notch Thrift Store strives to provide our community with quality used merchandise in categories you would find in any department store: clothing, furniture, housewares, tools, gardening, pet supplies, linens, books, music, small appliances, electronics and home decor.  We also have a fabulous selection of vintage jewelry and collectibles.  

Located in Bond Plaza on Columbia Blvd, our goal is to live up to our name with top notch merchandise, top notch staff, and a top notch shopping environment.  Our prices are low, the store is clean and organized, and our staff is friendly. 

​Yes, we know St. Helens has a lot of second hand stores, but we're proud to say we're the best!

​Who We Are

Top Notch is run by mostly volunteers and a few employees to raise funds for the St. Helens Senior Center and its programs, including home-delivered meals.  
Our customers agree!

“Great place to find amazing prices on everyday items. I highly suggest everyone donate their new or used items for a good cause.”

1/16/21 TOP NOTCH WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FEB. 1

Due to a positive COVID test of one of our staff members, out of an abundance of caution, Top Notch will be closed for two weeks for quarantining and sanitizing. The person who tested positive does not have contact with customers, so there is little chance of customer exposure. 

Be safe, and we’ll see you on Feb. 1! Our hours then will be Mon-Thurs-Sat 10-5!

 11/2020 We're still open during the "freeze!" Our large building can accommodate over 50 customers even at 75% capacity, and I don't know if we have ever had that many people at once in the store, even on our busiest days. (Last week's high count was around 30.) We urge everyone to stay six feet away from others who didn't come with you. Our amazing staff is sanitizing shopping cart and basket handles, pens, the ramp railing, door handles, and other surfaces to help keep you safe. (However, anyone with compromised immune systems or other health vulnerabilities should stay home as a precaution.) Current hours: Mon-Thurs-Sat, 10-5.
 Face coverings must be worn inside the store. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask or shield, please let us know what you are looking for and we will serve you curbside. Donations are accepted during store hours. There are no pick-ups and deliveries of donations/purchases until further notice. We look forward to seeing you!
