New thrift store helps Des Moines’ homeless



US WHY THIS STORE IS SO UNIQUE. THE GOAL OF THRIFT MART IS TO BE DIFFERENT FROM A TRADITIONAL THRIFT STORE. I JUST WANT TO SHOW YOU AROUND HERE WHAT? IT’S A VERY BUSY STORE. IT’S KIND OF HARD TO MOVE AROUND. WE HAVE FURNITURE RIGHT AT THE FRONT OVER ON THE WALL. YOU HAVE SOME HOME DECOR. THERE ARE SOME HALLOWEEN AND CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS. BACK HERE. WE’RE LOOKING AT A DISC SET. THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF ITEMS HERE THAT ARE REALLY SIMILAR TO THAT OF MORE OF A HIGH END RETAIL STORE. AND JUST LOOK AROUND THIS OTHER DIRECTION. HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE IN THE STORE? RIGHT NOW, IT’S VERY BUSY, ACTUALLY, SOMEWHAT DIFFICULT TO WALK AROUND. BUT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MAKES THIS STORE, THIS THRIFT STORE UNIQUE, DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS IS THAT ALL OF THE PROCEEDS HERE GO TO HELP THE HOMELESS COMMUNITY HERE IN DES MOINES.

UNTIL 6 P.M. IN DES MOINES. AND FROM
