One of the best thrift stores in all of Durham. They have a very large footprint that used to be a K-mart that is filled with a large variety of items- not just clothing, but furniture, building supplies, kitchen items, appliances, the list keeps on going. I have had a number of solid finds there over the years. They are now open again with limited hours for COVID-19 response. Masks are still requested inside the store as many employees have health concerns. The outside donation drop-off runs smoothly all day during their business hours.

As usual, I had a very pleasant experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I didn't find what I was looking for, but did purchase another item.

I absolutely love TROSA! I can always find something great at very reasonable prices and support a wonderful organization at the same time. One of my favorite shopping stops!

I had such a smooth experience with a donation pick up. My apartment can be tricky to get in and out of and I often get annoyed reaction from delivery people. But these people were so nice! It was quick and easy. I am definitely going to use them for my future donations.

Most of the store is ok except when you get to the bric or brack and the cooking items. I found them to have dried food on them really disgusting these items should never be put on the shelves.

Love me some trosa. They need to have some lower pandemic pricing though.

By far the most comprehensive and professional a-list thrift store I've ever been to. There is nothing that can compare to the elite professionalism and dangerously competitive prices this place possesses. I furnished an office and a living room for under $500 without having to compromise the things I desired. If you're thinking of putting together a room on a tight budget and don't care for an exact shade of cherry oak red or slate grey, you should come to Trosa every single time with no exception.

This is a great store and the staff is friendly. I recently took on the hour round trip from Raleigh to Durham and found that their hours are reduced to 5pm closing due to covid. This was a night swallowing mistake that if i'd gone to their website vs. google, i would have discovered.

The first time I went the people working there were so nice and helpful. I got some lovely drinking glasses and was able to find matches, which can be hard when things are donated. I also saw this end table with an attached lamp and book storage. I really liked it but at the time I didn't have anything that went with it. Some weeks later I got a bedroom set off Facebook that actually matched it exactly. But I couldn't get back to Trosa till yesterday. I was glad to find it still there and now 40% off. I was going to have them deliver it, but knowing how much that would cost the employees discouraged that. Instead they took it apart so it'd fit in the back seat of a car. They helped so much. I think this store has the some of the best employees ever.

We were so satisfied with our local move back in February. We did not have an excessive amount of stuff. So sending 5 guys may seem a lot; but let me tell you that it is well worth it. More guys means more efficiency. Tyler K., Matt O., Aaron H., Eric H. and Robert M. made our move a piece of cake. They were so professional; the packing and unpacking was a well oiled machine with this crew.

After donating for years I finally went to the store. Was impressed at the size and selection of items. It was very organized and well staffed. Good place to find odd and interesting goods.

This is an amazing thrift store for furniture. I have had so much luck finding all kinds of items here: office furniture (desk and chair), a large floor lamp, couches, etc. I would look here first if you're thrifting for furniture or workout clothes!

This thrift store is huge with plenty of treasures to find. They have an enormous supply of books of all genres to choose from. Please have time to look through their selections. They have an abundance amount of furniture for you to choose from (chairs, couches, tables, and many others). They have most of their items located in marked bins and shelving with other items placed around the store in separate locations. They have lots of clothing items for men and women, so you should definitely find what you need. They have plenty of pictures and frames for you to choose from, as well as, Cd's, Dvd's, Vhs tapes, and any other items that you typically find in thrift stores. You will be very pleased to visit this location.

Wow. This place is... something else. Huge warehouse with so much stuff! But chaotic. Great selection of lamps (all lamp shades are $2!!) Many mirrors were broken, glass was everywhere (watch yaself) I thought that most of the furniture / electronics were overpriced for the quality, but I’m not an expert on these things I was too worried about bed bugs to get sheets or towels. The staff were INCREDIBLY friendly. Eh.... I’ll probably be back.

Reuse and recycle the holidays. This store has decorations for every holiday. Every piece of plastic you take home with you is one piece of plastic that isn't going to wind up in the ocean. And, hey, rock bottom prices, too. A win-win for all.

Its very large which is appealing. But everything was pretty dirty and the furniture was extremely overpriced for thrift. I probably won’t return.

I honestly love this place so much. I got some furniture delivered from here, and have bought tons of household items, too. I can't recommend it more.

Exactly what a thrift store should be. Huge, a little bit of everything, and going to a good cause. The bathrooms were not clean so that's why I'm not doing all five stars, but that's pretty typical of thrift stores.

Last year, I bought a love seat sofa and a small rocking chair. Both items were in great condition and the prices were a hugh saving. I will be going to the store this week to pick up a few things for the house.

Incredible thrift store. I went for clothing but it looked like they had a huge selection of other things like furniture and toys. Also there are regularly sales which lower the already super low prices. The proceeds go to a really good cause too!

They have pretty much anything you could ever need and at great prices. Im pretty sure I filled my cart up with many different things, from clothes, shoes, kitchenware, stuffed animals and many other things and my total was shockingly low.... legit only $44. Great deals and the staff are friendly and helpful too!
