Strong Sales Prompt Housing Works Tribeca to Move to Huge New Location

Soon to be filled with high-end clothing, furniture and accessories

On Friday, July 31, Housing Works Thrift Shops thriving Tribeca location will officially move from 72 Warren St. to nearby 119 Chambers St (between West Broadway and Church St). The stunning art gallery-like location is four times the size of the old store, allowing Housing Works to sell even more of the top-quality clothing, accessories and furniture for which the upscale charity chain is so famous.

Housing Works will not be closing or changing its weekly hours to accommodate the move. The Tribeca store is open Monday-Saturday from 10am-7pm and Sunday from 12-5pm.

Housing Works Thrift Shops President Richard Vorisek says, “In less than six months, we’ve outgrown our original Tribeca location and, due to exceptional sales, we’re moving into a space that’s four times as large. The neighborhood donations have been strong and we’ve found a welcome home in Tribeca.”

The Tribeca store has been an instant success, thanks in part to donations from high-profile Housing Works fans such as Chloe Sevigny, Susan Sarandon and cast members of Bravo’s ‘Real Housewives of New York.

To celebrate the grand opening of the new location, the Tribeca store will host the August edition of our popular Editors’ Choice monthly shopping evenings. On August 25, from 7pm to 9pm, Allure fashion director and Housing Works board member Michael Carl will present “Hot Days of Summer,” a one-night only shopping event featuring gorgeous bikinis and light, easy beach wear. Plus, enjoy ice cream and beach food!
