Rescue Mission comes to rescue with sale

Fifty percent off sales for tough times

Rescue Mission Thrifty Shoppers are helping individuals and families stretch their dollars in this tough economy with a special sale May 16.

Everything besides new merchandise in every store will be 50 percent off their already reasonable prices during this Customer Appreciation Sale. Mark your calendars now to stop by and stock up on clothing, household goods and furniture.

If you haven't visited your nearby Rescue Mission thrift store recently, you need to check out what many more people are discovering--that your hard-earned dollar goes much farther at Thrifty Shopper.

Retail sales may be down double digits at most stores but they're way up at Thrifty Shopper. Sales in the last quarter rose 22 percent at those stores open at least a year, and the recession phenomenon is continuing.

One downside is these skyrocketing sales have left the Thrifty Shoppers with a critical need for donated clothing and household items to meet the continued high demand anticipated this summer and fall. With goods flying off the shelves, the Rescue Mission is asking community residents to go through their closets and drop off clothing, shoes and accessories they no longer wear or need--regardless of condition.

The Rescue Mission, one of Onondaga County's biggest recyclers, will turn any article of clothing into revenue that feeds, clothes, shelters and equips homeless and hurting people. When you drop by a Thrifty Shopper, drop off a donation of clothing.

The May 16 Customer Appreciation Sale is 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Rescue Mission stores in Auburn, Baldwinsville, Binghamton, East Syracuse, Fairmount, Liverpool, North Syracuse and Syracuse's Valley section - plus more out of town locations. For store addresses, donation locations or phone numbers, visit rmsyr.org or call 453-7242.
