Great Deals at a Retirement Village Thrift Shop!
I was talking to someone over the weekend and she mentioned that the thrift shop at the retirement village where she lives had been having great deals on barely used appliances. When the residents in the town homes move away or decide to move into the actual nursing home facility, the appliances from their town home is given to the thrift shop to resell. They'd had stoves and fridges selling for under $75! That is a great deal for a high quality, barely used appliance! And the money goes to a good cause - it goes into a benevolent fund to help any of the retirement village residents who may need it.
The thrift shop, being in an "upscale" retirement village, also has other great, quality merchandise at reasonable prices.
So if you are looking for a great deal on a used appliances or other quality second hand merchandise, make sure to check out your local retirement village to see if they have a thrift shop!
