The Medford Senior Center Thrift Store

The thrift store is located directly at the Medford Senior Center and is open daily during regular business hours.  If you are on a restrictive senior budget, then finding bargains is a must.  At the Senior Center’s thrift store you’ll find some fantastic deals on barely used clothing items, houseware, books, CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, collectables, furniture, decorations, supplies and lots more.

Bingo is Big at the Senior Center

It’s well known that seniors love their bingo.  Bingo not only offers excitement to the sometimes slow-paced life of seniors but it builds a strong sense of community while helping to establish new friendships. You also will have the opportunity to potentially win some extra pocket cash. Bingo is played every Monday and Wednesday at 1:30 pm, and on Saturdays at 12:30 pm.  You can get in on the action for as little as $5.00 for a Regular Pack of 10 games.  If you’re looking for some entertainment, come try your luck and join in with the community.
