Treasure hunting at second-hand shops is a popular activity for many and a group of Metro Vancouver thrift stores is teaming up to offer customers an incentive to pop some tags.
The annual Burnaby/New West Thrift Store Crawl is taking place from July 15 to August 15 at six shops across the two cities.
First held in 2018, the thrift store crawl is a great opportunity to learn about the important causes the shops support. Plus you’ll have a chance to win prizes.

Visit any participating store to pick up a stamp card, then visit each shop to get a stamp.
Once your card is complete, drop it off at any location for a chance to win a gift basket or a gift certificate from each thrift store.
