America’s Thrift Stores hosts grand opening in Huntsville March 18-21

HUNTSVILLE – America’s Thrift Stores announces the Grand Opening of its newest store in the Old Kroger off Drake Avenue (2009 Drake Ave SW). Grand Opening Weekend will kick off Thur., March 18 at 8:00 a.m. with events and door prizes and continues through Sun., March 21.

The Huntsville store will be one of the largest thrift stores in the Southeast with its more than 65,000 square-foot facility, 35,000 square-foot sales floor and ability to restock more than 15,000 new items every day. With up to 70% off pricing of name brand clothing and household goods, the store reinvents itself daily with donations from the community. This new location also offers a completely contactless drive-up center for safe and easy donating.

“We’re excited to bring our 22nd America’s Thrift Store to Huntsville,” said Ken Sobaski, CEO of America’s Thrift Stores. “Our stores are unique, when you walk in you’ll realize ‘We’re Not Your Mama’s Thrift Store’. We don’t just offer quality, inexpensive clothing and household goods, but we organize our store in a way that helps all those thrifty treasure hunters find everything they are looking for. We also give back to the community that’s embraced us by creating up to 100 new jobs, and giving donors an ecofriendly way to discard their unwanted items.”

America’s Thrift estimates 40 million pounds of goods are kept out of local landfills every year thanks to their stores. Additionally, locals can rest assured their donations are going toward a good cause. Through their unique “Donate for Wishes” program, America’s Thrift supports Make-A-Wish Alabama with every new store opening.

“Make-A-Wish is a cause close to our hearts and we’re thrilled to be able to continually support them,” said Sobaski. “For every pound of goods donated, we make a cash donation to the organization. Every bag or box of donations benefits Make A Wish of Alabama and will help grant wishes to the 85 children in Northern Alabama that are waiting on the ‘Wish List’. Last year we donated more than one million dollars to the organization and we’re looking forward to raising even more money for them this year, through this new store and others.”
