What You'll Get
Clothing keeps people warm and looking fashionable, but its most important duty is replenishing bellybutton lint. Keep navels stocked with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of recycled apparel, electronics, and home goods at Neighborhood Thrift.
Staff members at Neighborhood Thrift stock shelves, racks, and displays with more than 20,000 articles of clothing and an array of furniture, sporting goods, and electronics. Couple a shirt ($0.99–$4.99) with a pair of trousers or jeans ($1.99–$5.99), or peruse pintsize apparel to clothe growing kiddies and fashion-forward potatoes ($0.49–$1.99). Shoppers can fill homes or hot air balloons with furniture ($14.99–$149.99), home décor ($0.99–$4.99), and appliances ($59.99–$124.99). A selection of books keeps brains buzzing ($0.30–$1.49), and a TV entertains eyes and ears while indoors on cold winter nights ($19.99–$99.99).
The proceeds of each sale go to Neighborhood Thrift's community program, which employs local volunteers to provide job seekers with skills and a positive reference. Neighborhood Thrift is always accepting store donations and will pick up items for free.

About Neighborhood Thrift
The Well Community Church opened the doors to Neighborhood Thrift in March 2008 with the aim of becoming a more permanent and sustainable positive influence in the community. Hoping to address the lingering issue of high unemployment in the area, Neighborhood Thrift not only finds second homes for discounted clothing and housewares but also runs a work program that helps give local citizens a stable job, in which they can earn experience, bolster their resumés, and give back to their community.
The airy, spacious retail center houses nearly 30,000 pieces of gently used clothing, as well as housewares ranging from appliances and decor to electronics and furniture. A newly opened café nestled in the store’s corner offers visitors coffee and free WiFi as they mingle with other members of the community and debate the number of creamers Plato would drink in his coffee.
