Bud’s Warehouse has been Denver’s Home improvement thrift store since 1995. The warehouse offers an ever-changing selection of new and used doors, windows, cabinets and more at prices up to 70% off retail. With new products and customers coming and going every day it’s easy to miss out on the big picture at Bud’s.
Aside from diverting items from the landfill and offering great deals on building supplies, the staff at Bud’s work hard to create employment opportunities for people rebuilding lives from prison, addictions and homelessness.
As a program of Belay Enterprises, Bud’s hires and trains individuals who are unable to find employment due to significant barriers from the job market. Employees stay with Bud’s for 6-12 months and receive classroom and on-the-job training during their tenure. By the time someone leaves Bud’s for another job in the community, they have trained in areas including computers, personal finances, sales, customer service, received their forklift certification and much more.
Donating and shopping at Bud’s Warehouse directly funds the job-training program and helps create other employment opportunities such as New Beginnings Custom Woodworking and the Good Neighbor Garage.
Next time you shop at Bud’s Warehouse you can feel good knowing the great deal you found also helped support someone who is embarking on a new direction in life. You can support Bud’s by donating too, find out more here.
