America’s Thrift Store opens in Opelika, hosts grand opening through weekend

OPELIKA, Ala. (WTVM) - America’s Thrift Stores opened new store in Opelika Thursday morning.

The Opelika store opened Nov. 19 and will continue the Grand Opening Weekend through Nov. 22 in the Tiger Town Shopping Center next to Lowe’s in the old Gander Mountain.

The store located in Opelika is one of the largest thrift stores in the southeast with a 32,000 square-foot facility and has the ability to stock more than 15,000 new items daily.

“Our tag line is, ‘Where it’s a new store everyday.’ And so we pride ourselves on being the best at variety and selection. This store will put out 15,000 new items every single day. And on top of just that sheer amount of selection, we organize the store in such a way that you can find everything you’re looking for because while we know that thrift people love to treasure hunt, we think that they actually like to find their treasures more,” said Ken Sobaski, CEO of America’s Thrift Stores.

The store offers 100 new jobs to the Auburn-Opelika area. America’s Thrift Store also supports local charities like Make-A-Wish Alabama. With each new store that America’s Thrift Store opens in Alabama, Make-A-Wish Alabama benefits through their unique “Donate for Wishes” program.
