In today’s economy, it’s important for shoppers to get the most bang for their buck and the thrift store is where you can do that. Open your mind fashionistas and fashionmistas, the thrift store isn’t only for those in need.

The Smyrna Thrift Store is a good place to find affordable clothes, if you can get past the new furniture in the front of the store. The store is across the street from a Goodwill store but shoppers say Smyrna Thrift has the better deals. The store is located at 3150 South Cobb Drive in Atlanta.

Home of the “finest selection of used clothing in Atlanta” Last Chance Thrift Store is one of the largest thrift stores in the area.
