Since 2009, Second Chance Thrift Shop has supported Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra’s year-round adaptive sports and therapeutic recreation programs while giving new life to gently used goods in the community. “The Second Chance staff is so thrilled and excited about our new location,” says Second Chance Thrift Shop Manager Cai Lepre. “We’re like little kids at Christmastime.”

The new location provides more space and a prominent storefront near Von’s and other Old Mammoth Road restaurants and shops. DSES Executive Director Kathy Copeland says “This is a dream come true. We are so excited to have our own forever home. Huge gratitude for all of Mammoth for your love and support.”

Beginning July 1st, Second Chance Thrift Shop will be open seven days a week from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Donations will be accepted during business hours only. The community is invited to help celebrate the grand opening of the new location with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, July 4th at 1:00 pm.
