Local Charity Thrift Shop Closing

For about eight years folks in Pike County have been going to The Charity Thrift store on US 460 to buy discounted items.

Now, with local donations dwindling and their main merchandise supplier in Maryland cutting off their monthly shipments, owners say the store is forced to close.

Store Owner Charles Sanders says he knows closing their doors at the thrift store will hurt many in the community. "I hate to shut it down for that very purpose, because our goal is to help those who can't help themselves....but it is also to help those that want to help themselves but can't afford to shop at the big box stores."

Owners plan to close for good on January 18th.
