White Rock needs a thrift shop

Dear Editor,

White Rock is in dire need of a thrift shop. It might be to the county’s benefit to do something. The Los Alamos thrift shops receive much more than we can use. We end up being more of a sorting center than a thrift shop. We are overwhelmed!

A county committee could look into inviting a commercial thrift shop such as Habitat for Humanity, Savers, Salvation Army, Good Will, or similar companies. Savors, located in Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Rio Rancho, receives a lot from us through Clothing Helping Kids and Big Brothers & Big Sisters.

Habitat for Humanity receives a fair amount from us and has shops in Espanola, Santa Fe and Albuquerque. These stores would be open six or seven days a week and would need to charge higher prices but they would be handier for the customers. Their overhead would need to include hiring sorters and clerks, maintenance, rent, etc. Our shops would be open one or two days a week with cheaper prices. Our shops are run by volunteers.

Another idea would be a community volunteer shop having a building supplied by or rented from the county. There are available volunteers left from the Jemez House thrift shop. They also have some racks and display cases available. The income could go to the United Fund or something similar.
