Best Of 2014: Thrift Store

Arc Thrift Stores have swept this category for the past eight years, and it's no wonder why. Each of the four stores in town is large, clean and well-organized, with wide aisles and an abundance of merchandise that changes daily. Kathy McAdoo, director of community events, explains that proceeds from the stores' sales help fund the 12 Arc chapters in the state, which help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The stores also help their paying customers with a military discount, as well as 50 percent off most items for seniors every Tuesday, and for everyone who shops on Saturdays. — Kendal Kullman
