 Like No Thrift Shop You Have Ever Seen 


Dear Thrifty Shop Family,

We have made the very difficult decision to temporarily close our stores in Edwards and Eagle, beginning Tuesday March 17, until further notice. We will not be accepting donations during the closure so please hold onto your donations until we open back up.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We will continue to monitor notifications from the CDC, our state officials as well as Eagle County Dept of Public Health and Environment and make further decisions accordingly. We will alert people to changes through the newspaper, emails, social media and our website.

Eagle County, you guys are great, I have seen many acts of kindness so if you see a need, meet it if you can. Let’s continue to help each other. Everyone, follow all recommended guideline and stay as safe as possible.
