Shoppers will find style and savings during two-day sale

MANCHESTER, NH – OutFITters Thrift Store in Manchester, NH announces a two-day sale on Friday and Saturday, August 27 and 28 to welcome students back to school. Furniture will be 20% off and all clothes and books will be buy one, get one free. One-hundred percent of proceeds will go to support Families in Transition’s housing and services for homeless individuals and families in Manchester and Concord, NH.

According to a recent press release from the National Association of Resale & Thrift Shops (NARTS), “Back to school shopping is the second largest consumer spending time of the year.” But for the cash-conscious consumer, there is relief. “Students can be outfitted at resale, consignment and thrift stores for a fraction of the original price. Parents who understand value do not let back-to-school shopping sabotage their budget,” continued NARTS.

With volunteer support of twenty incoming freshmen from St. Anselm’s College, OutFITters, 394 Second Street, Manchester will open for its Back to School Sale on Friday, August 27. The sale will run for two days, 9am-8pm.
