Faith-based and non-profit mission, The Thrift Shop has opened at 1673 Bankhead Highway in Carrollton. Local community advocates Arthur and Linda Garcia opened the store to connect and give back to the community through The Purpose Center that offers a rehabilitation and recovery program for men.
The Thrift Shop celebrated their grand opening Wednesday, May 1. The store has a host of appliances, furniture, bedding, kitchen appliances, knick-knacks, accessories, clocks, home decor, as well as office furniture and cabinets.
The Thrift Shop accepts drop-off donations and offers pick-ups on Saturdays and Mondays. To schedule a pick-up, please contact them at (678) 343-7867 or (770) 906-4145.
Linda shared, “Initially, my husband and I were recruited to help establish the first substance abuse program in west Georgia. We help the community by providing a twelve-month residential program and residential care for men struggling with life-controlling issues.”
She continues, “We opened The Thrift Shop to sell valuable items at a fraction of the cost. But more importantly, we want to be an avenue to help single moms and those in need. We partner with local business leaders, churches, the legal system, and resource centers.”
The Thrift Shop is open Wednesday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Visit the store for super savings and friendly service.
They look forward to serving the community at The Thrift Shop.
