Time to BROWN BAG it!

Do you remember how we used to “brown bag it” and take our lunches to work? (This, of course, was back in the days before everyone had designer lunch bags with matching water bottles.) You could fit a sandwich, an apple, some carrot sticks, and a cookie in the bag.  It was (and still is) a great way to save money.  All it took was a little extra effort.

ALI shoppers, it’s BROWN BAGGING TIME AGAIN! On Wednesday, May 29 and Thursday, May 30, we’re having a BROWN BAG SALE.  These are our FINAL TWO DAYS BEFORE WE CLOSE FOR INVENTORY, so we want to clear out as much of our stock as we can.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:  You’ll shop as you normally would, then bring your purchases to the register to check out.  WE’LL PACK everything into a brown bag (you could end up with several brown bags).  EACH BROWN BAG is $5, total.  If something doesn’t fit in the bag (for example, a painting), it’s 75% off the marked price.

Now this won’t be a lunch-sized brown bag – it’s going to be a grocery-sized brown bag.  Just think of how many tops, pants, vases, cooking utensils, books, etc. you can fit in your brown bag.

Be at the thrift shop when we open at 10 am on Wednesday, May 29 when our Brown Bag Sale starts.  You could save enough money to be able to go OUT to lunch instead of brown bagging!

A month of sales!

If you’re a long-time customer of the ALI thrift shop, you’ll remember that we take inventory every year at the end of May.  That’s right – we count every single item in the shop, BY HAND.  And what does that mean for you? It means – your favorite month is here! May! THE MONTH OF SALES!

All month long, we’re going to have sale after sale, because we DON’T LIKE COUNTING.  We want everything in the shop to find a home with some happy customer, LIKE YOU.  Because if it’s sold, we don’t have to count it!

The sales will change week to week, but they’ll be GREAT! You’ll want to stop in every week, maybe even two or three times. And YOU’LL be counting up the dollars you saved!
