Winning at Assistance League of Irvine!

Everybody likes to win, and if you can figure out a system that improves your odds, so much the better! Usually such systems involve PhD-worthy math calculations, spending lots of money (if you never buy a raffle ticket, you’ll never win, right?), or many visits to a psychic.  We’re going to share with you a system to SAVE EVEN MORE MONEY AT THE ALI THRIFT SHOP. 

If you shop with us regularly, you know that our sales tags and dots are color-coded.  They also show the date the item went out on the sales floor.  Each month, we switch to a new color.  Items with a particular colored tag will be out on the floor for about a month at full price.  AND THEN:

One week at 25% off!

One week at 50% off!

One week at 75% off!

Then they’re gone (we pass whatever’s left on to the Salvation Army)!

You can see that if you can hold out until the 75% off week you’ll save even more money over our original low price.  BUT you have to weigh the odds that the thing you want will STILL BE THERE. 

To be honest – most of our merchandise is already priced so low that it’s not worth the stress of waiting for the 75% off sale!

Come in this week and you’ll see what we mean.  And your chances of finding a really great bargain are WAY MORE than your chances of winning the lottery!

Valentines Day is around the corner and you may be in the category of people who want to find something extra-special for that significant other for Valentine’s Day.

You know where we’re going with this:  the ALI thrift shop can help you find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, no matter WHICH category you’re in.  And when you shop with us, you’ll be in the best category of all:  people who give back to their community while shopping!
