Thrifty Threads Store Spotlight: Sacks on 72 "$5 Clothes Sack Sale Everyday"
MarMac Charities, Inc., Crisis Services, Save a Life Pregnancy Center, and Habitat for Humanity
Store Owner: Sean Overmyer
Store Location: 7443 Highway 72 W
Store number: (256) 837-7772
TT: How long has Sacks on 72 been in business?
Sean Overmyer: Since 2009, we’ve been open for 3 years now.
TT: What makes your thrift store different from other thrift stores in the community?
Sean Overmyer: We have the $5 clothes sack sale every day, because most of our donations consist of clothing we wanted to figure out a way to get customers to buy more clothing (that way we have more room in the store for more merchandise) so we came up with the idea of allowing customers to fill up a bag full of clothing for only $5! It worked, so we continue to do it and even named the store after the idea.
TT: This is what got me (Dom) to the store, a fellow thrifter told me about the store and I was in disbelief when she told me you could fill up a bag of clothes for only $5, I had to find out for myself and that I did!!!
