A membership of 85+ volunteers, the Invermere Health Care Auxiliary (IHCA), fundraises for hospitals and health care facilities in the East Kootenay. They participate in the running of the Invermere Thrift Store and are committed to health care in the East Kootenay Region.

The Thrift Store offers something for everyone including sporting goods, clothing, housewares, linens and even those famous things none of us really need but always treasure – the coveted knick knack.

Hours of operation – Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10am-4pm.
Seniors (65+) Shopping Day – 1st Wednesday 2pm-4pm

Accessibility Notes:

Every 1st Wednesday of each month the thrift store closes off to most of the public, but lets in people who have mobility challenges, making it easier for them to shop and move around. The volunteers are great role models inclusion with that, as well as donating proceeds to make spaces in our town more accessible, such as the Splash Park at Kinsmen Beach and the Community Hall and Library. Thank you Ladies Auxiliary for your effort in inclusion and accessibility in our valley. We really appreciate it.
