Hours of OperationThrift Store
Ruby Mountain Resource Center (RMRC) provides “thrift store shopping” for the communities of Elko, Spring Creek, Carlin and Wells. This meets a need for those people who cannot afford shopping in the local mall stores. RMRC also provides a “drop-off” location for thrift store resalable items that would otherwise be taken to the landfill. This helps with landfill over- dumping.
RMRC is the oldest non-profit agency in Elko County to act as a training center for adults with disabilities. We currently serve 16 adults in this capacity. These individuals are employed in the two thrift stores operated by RMRC.
RMRC also offers confidential paper shredding to local businesses and government agencies. A number of the adults work in the shredding room and have mastered this skill.
RMRC sells large bags of cut rags to local car services, fire departments, car washes and auto-mechanic businesses. Our individuals cut the rags and stuff the bags for sale.
RMRC employs 7 adults with disabilities in the green house which was acquired in 2012. This next year, RMRC hopes to employ more individuals and have a greater selection of plants and vegetables for sale.
RMRC offers food, shoes, clothing and hygiene products to the homeless citizens in our community. RMRC has a food pantry available to them and clothing is available from our stores. The homeless can also receive backpacks, sleeping bags and tarps when they are available.
