A new shop in town will be opening in March: The American Cancer Society Discovery Shop is an upscale resale store featuring gently used collectibles, clothing, jewelry and more.

Located in the Bouquet Shopping Center at 26570-B Bouquet Canyon Road, it will be open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed Sundays.
It’s a place to discover treasures and learn about the work that ACS does in the community.

The shop’s proceeds fund ACS programs and research.

Here in Santa Clarita, ACS provides free services for cancer patients. These include the free wig program for patients undergoing chemotherapy, transportation to and from treatment appointments through the Road to Recovery program and hotel accommodations for patients receiving treatment in Santa Clarita through the Hotel Partners program.

The ACS Discovery Shop may be the first contact that people have with the American Cancer Society, so the shop will provide brochures with information about cancer support services.

Store Manager Josette Guidos says she is excited that a Discovery Shop is opening in Santa Clarita after decades without one.

She is humbled by the enormous support from community members who have donated clothes, shoes, accessories and home decor.

She hopes many creative people will want to show their skills and volunteer to work in the shop as merchandisers, decorators, sales staff or donation processors. She hopes to create a family environment where people do what they love while making a difference.

In 1965, ACS volunteer Denise Noel opened the first Discovery Shop in San Fernando.

Currently, there are 49 shops in the western region of California, Oregon and Washington. Santa Clarita is in line to become No. 50.

In 2019, Discovery Shops nationwide raised $22 million to fund programs, services and cancer research.
