A popular Bend thrift store is closing down in a few days, and a huge sale is happening today and tomorrow.

 

The Bend Thrift Store is not going out of business; it’s relocating from NE Franklin Avenue to NE Thurston. 

 

Money made from the thrift store goes to support "Feed the Hungry" and other Bend Community Center programs.  And the economy also seems to be affecting the volume of business itself at the thrift store:  “What we see at our location is a lot of families coming in and finding great clothes.  We get every name brand that you can think of and a lot of them are brand new.  And we get everything in.  It seems we've seen a lot more people especially in the last year and a half and I think that is a sign of the economy."  Spokesperson IIainie Gleason says the new store will have the same square footage, but the layout is better. Again, the Franklin Avenue store closes on June 4th, and reopens on Thurston on June 30th.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
