Just-A-Buck – A Mission Driven Dollar Store

 “Employing People of Differing Abilities”

After years in the making, Community, Work and Independence (CWI) opened a not-for-profit retail dollar store on October 7, 2016.  This store is a partnership with the Just-A-Buck Corporation to provide employment, internships, assessments and training opportunities for people with disabilities.

CWI is the 7th human services organization in the nation to operate a mission-driven dollar store.  Just-A-Buck provides an opportunity for individuals to develop vocational skills.  Like all retailers, we rely on community support and patronage as this is not a state funded venture.

At Just-A-Buck (JAB) everything is just $1 every day.  Our unique retail model offers close out items and bargain prices.  We offer typical dollar store merchandise in addition to quality name brand merchandise.  You benefit by shopping with us first because we buy overstock merchandise from name brand retailers and sell at a fraction of their price.  By choosing to shop with us your dollar goes further and it helps support us to teach real life skills and encourage independence for Just-A-Buck associates.

Community, Work & Independence Inc. supports individuals striving to reach their potential to be productive and meaningful members of their community.  The operation of Just-A-Buck furthers our mission and makes it more visible to you, our shoppers.
