Find: Exposure A.L.P.H.A. Interchange 

New thrift store funds HIV/AIDS screenings

There has been some magic going on at 213 N. 10th St. Not only did Allies Linked for the Prevention of HIV and AIDS transform the storefront into a fully operational thrift and consignment store called Exposure A.L.P.H.A. Interchange, the store will also be performing some metaphorical magic of its own.

"We're turning other people's stuff that they're not going to use into test kits and condoms," said Executive Director Duane Quintana.

All proceeds from items sold at the store will go to fund HIV screenings at A.L.P.H.A.'s 45 testing locations across the state and to subsidize its support and outreach programs.

Exposure A.L.P.H.A. Interchange officially opened its doors July 7 and features an array of clothing, accessories, footwear and home items. The store is open Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In addition to its new retail arm, A.L.P.H.A. will also be opening a clinic in the adjoining warehouse space with testing rooms, meeting/workshop areas and a food pantry sponsored by the Idaho Foodbank.
