Just because Christmas has come and gone doesn’t mean thrifty shopping should stop! It’s the perfect time to hit the new America’s Thrift Stores location in Opelika because new items arrive daily!
A New Kind of Thrift Store
For those of you who haven’t noticed, there’s a new store in the formerly empty space that once was Gander Mountain. An America’s Thrift Stores location in Opelika opened its doors last month in the Tiger Town Shopping Center. It’s the 12th location to open in Alabama.
According to the website, America’s Thrift Stores is one of the largest in the Southeast, and merchandise is constantly added as items are sold as quickly as they are delivered! There are several things that make this thrift store unique, but one of the biggest is the fact that more than 12,000 new items are added every day!
That’s why the tagline, “Where it’s a new store every day,” works. Shoppers are encouraged to come by regularly because you never know what treasures have arrived since you were last there. Merchandise ranges from brand new clothing, household items, shoes, accessories, décor and more!
Shopping with a Purpose
With a total of 21 locations across the South, this thrift store is on a mission. Did you know that the America’s Thrift Stores location in Opelika—as well as the stores in neighboring Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee—all donate a significant portion of profits to local partner charities? For the Opelika location, the partner charity is Make-A-Wish Alabama.
Their goal is to distribute more than $100 million to those charities over the next 10 years. By shopping and making donations of gently-used clothing and other items, you are doing your part to help them reach that goal.
Save Every Day!
It’s nice to save during the holidays, after the holidays and every day in between. This is a reality at the new America’s Thrift Stores location in Opelika. Prices are low from day one. There’s no reason to wait for a sale to shop. But there are reasons to follow them on Facebook, including tracking discount days and colors.
America’s Thrift Stores is motivated to be a community partner while providing useful, affordable goods, or as they prefer to call your thrift store finds—treasures! By supporting them, you in turn support the children of Alabama and help make wishes come true!
