Located just west of Doylestown on Route 313. All proceeds benefit NOVA – helping victims of crime in Bucks County.
Moving to a New Location in the Fall of 2016
Network of Victim Assistance closed on the purchase of the 3.25-acre parcel at Route 313 and Broad Street. The planned 9,500-square-foot building will accommodate the shop’s need for retail, office, preparation and storage space for many years to come.
NOVA’s board of directors expects the 15-year-old thrift shop to relocate to its new quarters by fall 2016. Meanwhile, the shop continues to operate at its original location a mile and a third down the highway at Route 313 and New Galena Road.
“With our continuous growth, we’ve repeatedly outgrown our rented facility here,” says Maria White, shop manager. “We’ve pushed the limits of our available space, including two substantial sheds to the rear of the current building.”

How You Can Help the Thrift Shop
- Go through your cupboards, attics, closets, garages, and basement.
- Bring us ‘cool stuff’ that’s clean and in good repair.
- Tell your friends to do the same.
We are always looking for great items to sell in our shop! Thank you to our generous donors who help us keep the shelves and racks filled with wonderful merchandise, our volunteers who graciously give their time to help keep the shop running smoothly, and our loyal customers whose purchases help support NOVA’s mission of supporting victims of crime in Bucks County.
See our volunteer page if you are interested in volunteering at NOVA Thrift Shop, or talk to a manager at the shop anytime during business hours.
A Little Bit About NOVA’s Thrift Shop
We are so fortunate to have become a destination for many who are looking to stretch their dollars here in Bucks County. Our parking lot is always filled with customers looking for “the right item at the right price at the right time”. The shop has grown substantially since opening in 2001. We started out in one corner of the building and now occupy the entire space. We have grown every year thanks to the dedicated work of our volunteers, the generosity of our donors and our bargain hunting customers. Since there is no room for expansion in our current space, NOVA Thrift Shop is planning to move into a brand new building on Route 313 and Broad Street at some point in 2016 (Stay tuned for more news about this move as information becomes available!)
