Scottsdale is blessed with great weather, beautiful scenery and a relatively high standard of living. In fact, our city sits among some of the most affluent communities in the state. People from all over the country move here to start new chapters in their lives. Many times this means downsizing and donating high-quality items that they no longer need to local thrift stores and flea markets. Their new beginnings can equate to big savings on goods that you may need or want. Here are a couple of Scottsdale’s most visited thrift stores for savvy bargain hunters.
Savers Thrift Store
Savers Thrift Store is part of a group of global thrift retailers that have stores throughout North America and Australia. The brand has been serving communities for over 60 years, so store operators have thrifting down to a science. The retail outlet in Arizona specializes in gently used clothing, accessories and housewares.
Fans of the retailer describe a clean, organized store that houses designer brands at reasonable prices. Popular labels that you can expect to see include Banana Republic, J. Crew and Dooney and Burke. Savers offers plenty of discounts. There is a discount day specifically for seniors, and certain days during the week are designated for special savings on specified items.
Savers also shows amazing corporate responsibility. Portions of sales are donated to local non-profit organizations, and clothing that cannot be sold in Savers retail stores are donated to developing countries.
White Dove Thrift Shoppe
White Dove Thrift Shoppe is a cozy little treasure trove whose proceeds support the mission of the Hospice of the Valley. The all-volunteer staff keep the store clean and well organized for patrons who come in every day to hunt for bargains on clothes, furniture, vintage items and housewares. Color- coded tickets on items indicate discounts that have been known to go as low as $2.50 for designer jeans and trousers. Tommy Bahama, Ralph Lauren and Levi are just some of the brands that you might see at the Scottsdale White Dove Thrift Shoppe.
