Mint Thrift Opens its Doors in Fresno
Mint Thrift opens in Fresno! The Fresno Chamber, elected officials, and shoppers alike joined for the ribbon cutting last Friday.
Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting
The Ribbon Cutting took place outside of the Mint Thrift building. With hundreds of people in attendance, the store was welcomed to Fresno. Voice of the Bulldogs, Paul Loeffler was the MC of the event introducing elected officials, acting Superintendent of Central Unified, and of course CEO of Minth Thrift, Kevin Foster. The Fresno Chamber of Commerce presented Kevin with his membership plaque and certificate welcoming him and Mint Thrift. Doors opened to shoppers immediately after the ribbon was cut.

Mint Thrift offers clothing, home décor, books, and so much more at a price that is affordable. When you walk into the store you will notice it isn’t like your typical thrift store. The layout resembles that of the higher end retailer, Anthropolgie. The store and its employees are so welcoming.
If you are looking donate some items, you can do that too! The store accepts donations during store hours, Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 5pm. Mint Thrift will accept your smaller donations in store, while the larger items should be dropped off at the designated area, on the east side of the building.
The new store is on West Shaw in Fresno. The store sits behind Chili’s on the corner of Shaw and Valentine. That general area is also home to LifeBridge Community Church where Mint Thrift CEO, Kevin, is Lead Pastor. LifeBridge Community Church was the Community Hero Award Recipient at the Fresno Chamber’s 2021 State of the County.

LifeBridge Community Church helped to launch the ACTS Foundation, a separate nonprofit organization that will help further compassion work here in Fresno! It stands for “Actively Coming Together Selflessly.”
The Fresno Chamber of Commerce is so excited to welcome Mint Thrift to Fresno.
