‘Mall’ great place to shop

Open two days a week - the Westbridge Thrift Store is a wonderful opportunity for shopping on a budget. Neat as a pin too!

The Westbridge Thrift Store is not only a great place to do some smart shopping but it is also a wonderful opportunity to donate what you no longer want or need to a good cause.

“We call it the Westbridge Mall – because you can find everything here,” I was told when I stopped by last Saturday.

They take donations of gently used clothing (men’s, women’s or children’s), books, CDs, household goods, ornaments, sporting goods, jewelry, all the way down the list to plumbing supplies. They do not accept large items.

They prefer that items be dropped off on Friday or Saturday between 10 and 2 so they can be moved out of the weather immediately.

They are currently working winter hours – open from 11-3 on Fridays and Saturdays.

The volunteer group’s work supports the Westbridge Community Hall.
