Thrift-Store Sales Rise, But Donations Fall
Apparently, having worn what you sell to a secondhand store isn't always required.
"We have [secondhand] clothing items that still have tags on them," Andrade said.
You'll see the same at Thrift Town and Salvation Army, but it isn't always a sign of someone having money to burn.
Salvation Army recently took in a donation from Mervyn's.
The shuttered chain had to offload goods that remained after clearance sales.
Time for the tough to go shopping.
