On Saturday, Sept. 26, Shift Thrift Store opened its doors for the first time in Colorado Springs. Shift Thrift store is an innovative idea that benefits the community, local non-profits and the environment. Shift Thrift partners with local charities and accepts household goods and donations on the behalf of the charities. By keeping everything local, Shift Thrift has a unique opportunity to make a big impact in the Colorado Springs community.

Not only does Shift Thrift partner with charities, it also creates local jobs by hiring local citizens who may face challenges in getting employed. Also, by taking donations of household items, Shift Thrift keeps unwanted items out of landfills.

Shift Thrift is located at 218 West Colorado Ave. in Colorado Springs and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00-5:00. Shift Thrift has set up a crowdfunding campaign, and donations can be made by clicking here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/shift-thrift-store#/story.

Shift Thrift is a revolutionary idea that has the potential to make giant impacts in local communities. If you’re interested in learning more about Shift Thrift’s goals, visit their website at: http://shiftthriftstore.com.
