Thank you for your patience as we navigate the many challenges we face during
the Covid-19 crisis. Racks and fixtures have been removed to support social
distancing. Floor markers assist the flow of traffic throughout the shop and
checkout line to reinforce social distancing. The number of customers in the shop
is limited to 18 at a time.

 

All high touch surfaces will be cleaned frequently; including shopping carts, door
handles, and checkout counters. Hand sanitizer is available to customers at the
entrance of the store and also at the checkout counter. To protect your health and
safety fitting rooms and public restrooms are temporarily closed.
All volunteers, staff, and customers are required to wear face coverings.
If you are sick, please stay home and get well! We’ll be here when you are healthy!
Thank you for supporting the Orange Lutheran High School Thrift Shop ministry.

We have missed you all, and we look forward to serving you!

MISSION

The mission of the Orange Lutheran High School Thrift Shop is to support the Christian character and education of Orange Lutheran High School students through financial assistance and reach out through ministry to our community.

HISTORY

The original Lutheran High School Thrift Shop opened in 1969 on Chapman Ave. at Prospect and was open for nearly 20 years. The shop eventually closed, but after a few years, it was decided that a thrift shop was needed to provide for student financial assistance. In 1994 the Lutheran High School Thrift Shop opened at 686 N. Tustin St., located in the building we now call the furniture store. Within a few years, we outgrew that space and took over the adjacent building which is our present location. The main store houses clothing, household goods, media, electronics, jewelry, and collectibles. In the furniture store, you will find furniture, refrigerators, lamps and mirrors, medical equipment and rugs.

How is our thrift shop different from other thrift shops? Our shop is clean and organized, we have the best prices in town, and we know many of our customers by name plus what they are looking for!
