Ohio Thrift is a chain of for-profit thrift stores established in the late 80s. It sources its merchandise from non-profits, liquidators, importers, brokers, manufacturers, etc. This way, thousands of items pass through its thrift stores daily.
Non-profit organizations deliver donated goods to Ohio Thrift stores, which then buys the items wholesale. This aids non-profits in collecting funds for their programs and causes. Ohio Thrift pays federal, state, and local taxes while helping non-profits meet their financial goals.
Donations are then sorted. Higher quality items are sold at the shops while lower quality items are sold in bulk for recycling/resale. Other items sold in Ohio Thrift shops include garments, bags, shoes, accessories, textiles, and mattresses.

A loyalty program is offered to repeat shoppers. Due to its fast turnover of merchandise, the company cannot keep a detailed inventory of all items. All merchandise is sold as-is, and all sales are final.
Their stores can be found in several locations in Columbus. It also operates a number of outlets elsewhere in Ohio. The stores offer promotions regularly including the 1/2 price sale on the middle and last Wednesday of every month.
