Y’s Buys Thrift Store is the place to shop! Whether you are looking for something special or just browsing, we have something for everyone!

One hundred percent of Y's Buys net proceeds support YWCA Great Falls' life-changing programs and services for local families in crisis.


We are open 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.

  • By shopping at and/or donating to the YWCA Great Falls' Y's Buys, you directly support our programs and services while providing Mercy Home participants with the opportunity to shop, using free vouchers, for the items they need to rebuild their lives.
  • We rely on volunteers to staff the store in order to offer low prices.
  • We rely on individuals in the community to donate good quality clothing.
  • We accept gently used clothing, accessories, and shoes. The store is currently in need of gently used school-aged boy clothing.
  • Due to the changing volume of donations we receive, our ability to accept donations can vary from day to day. Before dropping items off, we recommend calling to check whether donations are open.


Come in and see us at the YWCA Great Falls, 220 2nd St. North (in the basement)!
