Second Chance Thrift Store customers lined the sidewalk Tuesday morning, September 3, for the Fall Re-opening and the doors opened at 10:00 a.m. to a very happy and eager crowd. 


During the week before the re-opening, Second Chance Thrift Store underwent a deep cleaning, got a little fresh paint, and new displays were added to complement new fall and winter merchandise. The store is bright, beautiful, and has lots of great furniture, fall and winter clothing, and unique household items. The variety assures that there is something for everyone.
