The Bargain Box

Regardless of where it is located, the Bargain Box has proved itself a successful fixture in downtown Greensboro. Bargain Box Logo

 

  • In 1935, the Junior League Gift and Antique Shop became known as the Junior League Thrift Shop.
  • In 1947, the Thrift Shop became a League mainstay and changed its name again — this time for good — and celebrated the grand opening of the Bargain Box on Summit Avenue.
  • In 1949, the Bargain Boxed moved again and would later move six more times in only 30 years — 145 Bishop Street, 117 South Davie Street, 218 South Greene Street, 908 North Eugene Street, 113 South Elm Street, 122 North Elm Street and finally 1410 Mill Street.

The Bargain Box is the League’s only ongoing fundraiser and sells previously owned merchandise donated by League members and the community.
