Double take Thrift store

Double Take now has an online store!

Store Hours: Monday  – Saturday, 11 AM – 8 PM
Location: 310 Gerrard St E, Toronto

YSM’s Double Take is a thrift store that offers incredible classic vintage items. All proceeds go directly to supporting community members in need.

Here are some helpful guidelines for donating clothing:

  1. It helps so much if you are able to donate clothing that is already washed, and separated according to type (men’s, women’s, kids). Seasonal is especially appreciated! 

  2. Please donate directly to the back doors of our warehouse between the hours of 10 am-4 pm, Tues-Sat (ring the bell if the doors are closed). If you need to come between 4-8 pm, a cashier can help you with your donation through the store. Please do not leave bags or boxes on the floor in the store, in the foyer, or outside our doors!

  3. Consider signing up as a volunteer to see firsthand our processes and to multiply your giving!
