Thrift and Free Stores

Vincentian Links

This page gives basic information about all Vincentian Thrift Stores and Distribution Centers in the Columbus Diocese. St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores can be found nationwide. They are a major source of income for the local SVDP conferences. This income is used by Vincentians to help fund all of our charitable activities, such as paying for food, heating, rent, pharmaceuticals, medicines, and other needs for the poor in their area.

We need information from conferences throughout the Diocese about stores and distribution centers operated by Vincentians. Please email information to: Also submit information about stores and outlets in your area. Information about non-Vincentian outlets will help other Vincentians refer clients to sources of aid.
