California Discovery Shops

California Discovery Shop Experience: Where helping others is always in style.

Our Discovery Shop locations across California help support the fight against cancer through the sale of high-quality, gently used, donated merchandise. For more than 50 years, the American Cancer Society has owned and operated these specialty resale stores, featuring items such as clothing, accessories, jewelry, artwork, antiques, collectibles, furniture, and other household items.

Please stop by and see what you’ll discover!

Get Involved

Discovery Shop stores rely on the community to shop, donate, and volunteer.


High-quality, gently-used and new merchandise are donated by the community. Our fun, upscale resale atmosphere separates the Discovery Shop from a typical thrift store. There’s always something new to discover with refreshed merchandise daily, and you’ll love our amazing volunteers! Every purchase supports the American Cancer Society mission as well as a sustainable global environment.


If you have items that no longer bring you joy, entrust them to your local Discovery Shop. Drop-offs are welcome every day. We can also arrange to pick up larger furniture, in very good condition, on a shop-by-shop basis. We cannot accept major appliances, mattresses, or intimate apparel. Merchandise donated by the community has raised $22 million in 2019 and is helping the American Cancer Society save more lives.


For a few hours every week, join the fun and camaraderie while supporting your community! Volunteers are key to our success. With shops staffed almost entirely by volunteers, funds raised go even further to help the American Cancer Society lead the fight for a world without cancer.

See available opportunities!



More than 40 California Discovery Shop locations offer a fun way to have a meaningful impact in the community and help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle. We’re expanding to new communities thanks to your support, recently opening our doors in Huntington Beach, and coming to Santa Clarita and Folsom soon!
