A meeting of the newly-formed Nonprofit Thrift Store Alliance was held at CareNet on Wednesday, Jan. 19. The group of Macon County will meet once a month to discuss ways to work together to promote the thrift stores.
Events that are planned include a Best Window competition. Each store will decorate with a theme for the month. The theme for February will be Sweetheart Month. Each store will decorate and be judged by shoppers’ votes. The winning store will choose a name out of the ballot box, and the person chosen will win a gift certificate for that store. There are also plans for a bed race in April.
