As the B-thrifty thrift store prepares to open the doors of the area’s largest shop on August 19, 2011, many people are wondering what all the buzz is about. Those who regularly shop at thrift stores will find that they have a new place to browse, one that is stocked with over 250,000 items in more than 100,000 square feet. Those who are new to thrift-store shopping may not know where to begin to find the bargains, but they do abound!
“Thrift-store shopping has always been popular, but today it is even more so,” explains Diego Belmonte, co- owner of B-thrifty (www.b-thrifty.com). "It is environmentally friendly, and there are always great bargains to be found. Plus, you can find some rare and valuable items there that you just can’t find elsewhere.”
