Like panning for gold, successful thrift-store shopping requires time, a keen eye, and a pickax for fending off mountain lions. Prospect for a bargain with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of clothing and goods at Value Village Thrift Department Store. This Groupon is valid at Value Village’s Florissant, Shrewsbury, St. Louis, and Fenton locations.
Named [Best Thrift Store of 2010] by the Riverfront Times(http://gr.pn/fXvi6v), Value Village Thrift Department Store gussies up bare hangers with new, gently used, and vintage clothing alongside a host of quirky home décor and collectibles. The eco-conscious store’s inventory of apparel for men, women, and children ($0.99+) constantly rotates, eventually amassing into a downhill garment ball that adds layers of typewriters and tea kettles while accelerating past Value Village’s considerable selection of housewares ($0.80+). Model a piece of women’s clothing ($2.99 average) atop an antique table or while reclining on the store’s bevy of other distinct furniture items. Or scour toys and collectibles for nostalgic treasures such as a vintage bomber helmet and distinctive Pez dispensers in the shape of Eli Whitney.
The selection at Value Village rarely ever stays the same—that's because each location boasts a rotation of 30,000 items each week, sourced from charitable organizations and wholesalers. Among this sprawling selection, customers will find a cavalcade of new and gently used clothing, ranging from jeans to shirts to dresses, be they in classic, vintage styles or modern trends. Additionally, they'll also find a huge selection of furniture such as couches and tables, along with electronics, appliances, toys, and housewares to place on and around them.
