Founded by The Junior League of Greensboro in 1935, the Bargain Box (a locally-owned thrift store store) is the League’s largest ongoing fundraiser. Since it’s founding, the Bargain Box has helped The Junior League of Greensboro fund nearly 3 million dollars worth of community projects.
- 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 Box moved again and would later move only six times until 2016: 145 Bishop Street, 117 South Davie Street, 218 South Greene Street, 908 North Eugene Street, 113 South Elm Street, and finally, 122 North Elm Street.
- In 2016, we settled into our new location at 1410 Mill Street.
