More about Every Thing Goes Every Thing Goes is a collection of four thrift stores located on the North Shore of Staten Island. Our first store opened in 1983 at 208 Bay Street. It expanded from one floor to three and from one building to four over the course of 10 years. Everyone who works in the stores lives together and shares in the stores’ profits. Because we live and work together, work relationships and conflict resolution are important to us. We seek open and caring ways of relating to one another in which we regard problems as opportunities to work together. And we find that when we do put our minds together to solve problems we make better decisions. We want to extend this caring of each other to our customers as well. We view our customers as unique, valuable people who add to our lives by sharing theirs.
