The Country Corner Thrift Store is not open on Wednesdays. The thrift store offers good used clothing and small household items at reasonable prices. Bag sales will be available the first and third Saturday each month. Bags containing 20 items or less will sell for $4. The proceeds from the store support the food pantry.
