Metro Retro & Retail

Metro Retro & Retail gladly accepts your donated, gently used and new furnishings for the express purpose of reselling. The revenue generated from sales goes directly to Metro Inclusive Health. When you shop with Metro you’re making a larger impact on the community.

100% of store profits are used to support ongoing HIV/AIDS programs and services and provide purchase certificates for hundreds of people with HIV in the Tampa Bay area
Virtually every purchase or donation that you make can have a direct impact on people and/or families affected by HIV/AIDS in Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Pasco Counties.
Serving St. Petersburg for more than a decade, Metro Retro & Retail has been instrumental in providing free household goods, clothing, and other merchandise to anyone living with HIV/AIDS through donated merchandise and sales to the general community. Purchase certificates are available through all case management agencies in Pinellas County.

Please call 727-321-7212 during normal business hours in advance to schedule the date and time of pick up. Also, check with your neighbors to see if they would like to contribute. The more furniture donations to pick up in one neighborhood, the better!

“Would I give this to a friend or family member?”

Metro Retro & Retail appreciates the good will and generosity of our donors but ask you to read the guidelines posted here before bringing your items. We are forced to haul items that do not sell to the dump, which is costly and wasteful, and therefore reduces our funding potential for much needed HIV/AIDS services and programs.
