Rescue Mission stores celebrate 50th anniversary

The Rescue Mission will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its first thrift store with a special two-day sale.

Thrifty Shoppers will hold a 50 percent off storewide sale from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday March 25 and from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday March 26.

Take advantage of half-price savings off the already reasonable prices of spring as well as winter clothing and shoes for men, women and children plus household goods, electronics and furniture where available. In addition to stretching your dollars, you'll be shopping for a greater good as every purchase helps the Rescue Mission serve our neighbors in need.

That Saturday, the first 50 customers at each store will receive a gift, customers will enjoy cake and a grand prize will be awarded at 6 p.m.

This sale is in celebration of the first Rescue Mission thrift store, known as the Helping Hand Store, which opened in March 1961 at 811 East Washington St. Fifty years later, the Rescue Mission operates 13 stores now known as Thrifty Shoppers. They are in Auburn, Baldwinsville, Binghamton, Cicero, Cortland, East Syracuse, Fairmount, Henrietta, Liverpool, North Syracuse, Oswego, the Valley section of Syracuse and Watertown.
