SAAC's Fifth Avenue

Montco SAAC's Fifth Avenue plays a vital role within the Senior Adult Activities Center of Montgomery County, a trusted resource serving older adults in Norristown and its surrounding areas for over 55 years.

Our thrift shop offers a wide selection of clothing styles suitable for all seasons at affordable prices, making fashion accessible to all members of the community. In addition to clothing, Fifth Avenue also provides footwear, home goods, and accessories, catering to diverse needs and preferences.

PA WorkWear

As a designated PA WorkWear provider, Fifth Avenue goes beyond offering clothing; it serves as a valuable resource for those seeking employment. Individuals looking for work can find additional support here, including one complimentary outfit for job interviews and three outfits for qualifying TANF recipients who have secured employment. Our commitment to accessibility ensures that anyone, regardless of budget, can find suitable attire at Fifth Avenue.

For quality clothing options, essential items, and employment support, visit Montco SAAC's Fifth Avenue thrift shop. 

In recent years, we have seen a great need for more relevant clothing for those in need. We are seeking seasonal, professional & casual clothing for young adults, especially in sizes extra small, small & medium. Handbags & jewelry are always needed and welcomed along with men’s & women’s shoes.
