More People Are Thrift Store Shopping and Donating Less Clothes

Have You Been Donating Less or Buying More Thrift?

Thrift stores are reporting an increase in same-store sales for 2008, but they are concerned that the slowdown in donations will leave them without enough Winter stock. George Hood, national community relations and development secretary for the Salvation Army, explained, “Young women are looking in their closet and saying, ‘You know, I’m going to wear that a little longer instead of giving it away.'"

Does his comment describe your recent thought process, and have you been contributing to the boost in thrift sales this year?
