Thrifty Outfitters, which helps to fund the services of the DeKalb County Children’s Advocacy Center and The Gathering Place, has moved to a new location. Formerly at 220 Gault Avenue S., the thrift store can now be found at 3700 Gault Avenue N. in Fort Payne.
The store offers a wide variety of items such as home décor, furniture, kitchen wares, clothing for the entire family, shoes, jewelry, purses, books, DVD’s, art work, and more.
Marketing Director Kelly Moses said, “We have been extremely fortunate with the success of the Thrift Store. It has been a great asset this year because we have missed several of our fundraising events and it has made up for these and then some.”
The CAC provides a non-threatening environment for forensic interviews with alleged victims of abuse who are referred by the Department of Human Resources and law enforcement. The Gathering Place is a facility that offers a safe place for custodial and non-custodial exchanges as well as a child-friendly environment for supervised visitation. CAC Programs also address bullying/cyber-bullying and dating violence, as well as teaching parenting skills.
“I would like to thank all our customers and donors for making our time at our location in town very successful, and I look forward to the same success and greater at our new location,” Moses said. He is joined at Thrifty Outfitters by staffers Brady Moses, Alex Smith and Abby Casey.
