***Thrift Stores Reopen on West Bank New Orleans***

One of the biggest signs of recovery around town has to be the reappearance of two thrift stores on the West Bank.Thrift City, the wonderful store that used to be next to Union Supermarket in the Carrolton Shopping Center in New Orleans is now located at Terry Parkway in unincorporated Terrytown. This might be the "Divine Providence" indicated in the above photo. Thank you thrift store goddess!

Thrift City was my first New Orleans thrift store and you never forget your first one in every new city. Especially when the stuff is as good as it is there. Thrift City now has a sale every day on whatever color tag. They never used to have that! However they have resurrected 1/2 off day, the next one to come is February 15. I'll see y'all there at 7am. It is awesome they have these now on Thursdays because that is my late day at work. Do you remember running to Thrift City on your lunch hour during 1/2 off day?

Thrift City is run by the same great folks and they still take donations. They still dont have dressing rooms though.

Last Chance Thrift store has just reopened in its same location at 1716 Barataria Boulevard, four blocks from the intersection of Barataria and Lapalco.
Last Chance Thrift Store is open Mon-Sat 10AM - 8PM
