If you love to read, we’ve got an offer you can’t refuse. We’re currently selling TWO books for ONE DOLLAR. Mix and match hardback and paperback books – any combination! But if you buy just ONE book, it’s still going to be one dollar. So you might as well buy TWO.

We have many, many books by popular authors that are practically new. At this price you can stock up, and you’ll be ready for a cozy night of reading when the next El Nino storm hits.

This offer doesn’t apply to any books with individual price tags (for example, some specialty books will have their own price sticker) or children’s books. Children’s books are $1 for hardbound books, 50 cents for paperbacks or soft-cover books, and 25 cents for mini-books.

We also carry recent magazines at just 50 cents each.

You can use our two-for-one-dollar price for anything else – mysteries, literature, biographies, history, cookbooks, how-to books, romance novels – such a deal!

We’re ALWAYS getting new book donations, so stop in often to see what’s new on our shelves. Just remember – TWO for ONE when you’re in our book section.



Yes, New Year’s Day is over, but it’s not too late to make those New Year’s Resolutions for 2016. And just to help our readers out, according to ABC News, the top five resolutions for 2016 are:

  1. Enjoy life to the fullest
  2. Live a healthier lifestyle.
  3. Lose weight.
  4. Spend more time with family and friends.
  5. Save money, spend less.

The ALI thrift shop can help you meet these goals!

#1: We like to think our shoppers ALREADY enjoy life to the fullest. Our shoppers are curious and always ready for something new, because they come in every Wednesday morning just to see what interesting treasures we’ve put out on the shelves over the weekend. They’re smart, because they know they can save a lot of money shopping with us. They’re courageous, because many of them face daily challenges in life and the thrift shop helps them stretch their dollars to meet those challenges. They’re confident and they think for themselves, because they have no problem wearing designer jeans with a sweater they bought at the shop (and have no problem telling their friends where they bought the sweater). They have lots of hobbies, because they buy sports equipment, crafting supplies, and books. They love their families and their friends, because they’re always spotting a T-shirt, or a toy, or a little necklace that they just HAVE to get, because “it would be perfect for my daughter” (or my grandson, or my neighbor). They care about others, because they bring us lots and lots of great donations that we can sell at the shop to pay for our philanthropic programs.

Our shoppers can also check off #4. Think of all those hours that are freed up when you’re not circling around the parking structure at the mall!

Our shoppers OBVIOUSLY have #5 covered, because where else can you find prices like ours?

See how easy that was? Just by shopping at the thrift store, you’ve fulfilled 60% of your New Year’s Resolutions!

(And if you really want to work on #2 and #3, we have plenty of “healthy lifestyle” cookbooks to get you started . . .)
