There is a new store in town and it's not your usual retailer. Its mission is to stop homelessness.
The thrifty shopper, a thrift store chain, opened in the Park Manor Plaza on Hooper Road in Endwell.
The store not only sells clothing, household goods and furniture; it also supports the Binghamton Rescue Mission. The Mission's goal is to end hunger and homelessness in the community.
This is the second Thrifty shopper in the area. The Binghamton Upper Front Street location opened in 2003. Since that time, owners say that store has helped to raise more than $1,000,000 towards helping the homeless.
