We are The Bag Ladies Thrift and Gift. We are a local Albany Oregon thrift store that started as a dream of 3 unsuspecting humans. There seemed to be a need in the Albany area for a thrift store offering better quality and cheaper prices than the rest. We strive to offer great customers service, good quality merchandise and have happy customers.
We care! We have no 'paid' employees, if you see someone behind the counter ,it is one of us 3 unsuspecting human owners, so yes, we care!
We also offer delivery on large purchases, free locally and a small fee for gas in the surrounding areas.
When did we show up?
A suitable building seemed to appear out of nowhere last September (2008) so the unsuspecting humans took the plunge and opened the doors on October 13th.
What are we about?
Well, we offer better quality merchandise at thrift store prices, usually lower than the big boys. How do we do that you ask? Don't we just put out stuff that is donated to us? Nope! We are not legally defined as a 'non-profit' organization and as such we do not rely on donations for our merchandise. We buy most of what we sell (and still sell it for less than the others). The advantage of buying our merchandise is that we can be 'picky' and we try to do just that.
We do gladly accept and greatly appreciate all donations, we just don't rely on them for the majority of our merchandise.
Where are we? What are our store hours, etc?
