Bargain Square Thrift Stores
Adelante operates two Bargain Square Thrift Stores, in Los Lunas and Belen, both of which are social enterprises that provide employment for people with disabilities. We put out thousands of donations every day and we are open 7 days a week, Monday through Friday 10 am to 8 pm, and weekends 10 am to 6 pm. Shoppers can find great deals on everything from clothing and housewares to furniture.
We primarily sell gently used donated items, but we do buy items from wholesalers occasionally such as tools, dishes, sunglasses, and more to make sure our shelves are full year round.
Adelante can pick up larger donation items, such as furniture in Valencia County and the Albuquerque metro area. For this service, call the Bargain Square closest to where you need the donation picked up and we'll arrange for a truck to visit to your home or business to pick-up your donations.
We appreciate the community's support with donations and that fact that thousands of people shop with us each week. When you support Adelante Bargain Square, whether you are 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.
