National Thrift Shop Day


Thrift Shop Day is dedicated to thrift shops, the resale shops that more often than not are connected to a charity organization. While some resale shops are for-profit businesses such as buy-outright or consignment stores, most thrift shops have received their goods as donations, and donate to or are a charity organization. Popular items found at thrift shops include clothing, DVD's, CD's, books, and furniture. People shop at thrift shops for various reasons, whether it be for the low prices, support of charity, or for environmental and ethical reasons such as recycling and protesting sweatshop work.

National Thrift Shop Day is observed next on Monday, August 17th, 2020. It has always been observed annually on August 17th.
