Adelante has operated two Bargain Square Thrift Stores, in Los Lunas and Belen. Both stores are social enterprises that provide employment for people with disabilities. We have thousands of shoppers in our stores every month who purchase everything from clothing to furniture at great prices. We primarily sell gently used items, but we do buy items from wholesalers occasionally such as tools, dishes, sunglasses, socks, and more. Due to a fire we suffered, the Belen store is currently closed, but we do have a temporary donation site in Belen next door to the store for donation convenience.
We greatly appreciate the support the community is providing. If you'd like to help Adelante rebuild and restock the Belen store please shop at our Los Lunas store, donate items we can sell (a helpful list of ideas is below) or make a financial gift to help us re-open.

Adelante can pick up larger donation items, such as furniture. For this service, call the closest store location to your site to arrange a visit to your home or business for pick-up.
When you support Adelante Bargain Square, whether it’s donating items or shopping at our stores, you help us provide retail training and employment opportunities for people with disabilities in our community. People who work at Bargain Square help with donation pick-ups, organizing and stocking the store, and handling customer service at the cash register. A lot of the work day is spent processing donations, including sorting clothes, cleaning up household items, hanging linens, and preparing almost anything for the sales floor. Training and supervision is provided and no experience is necessary.
