As many stores are beginning to reopen, the last remaining Thrift Town on El Camino Ave. in North Sacramento is throwing in the towel. The family-owned business made the sad announcement on the Thrift Town website

“…after 49 years of serving our local communities, we find it necessary to close our California stores permanently.” 

They tried to survive through the pandemic closure. Funding from the federal relief program allowed them to pay their employees during the statewide shelter-in-place orders. 

“Unfortunately, we do not have the resources available to reopen our California Thrift Town Stores,” the announcement continued.

Last year Thrift Town sold two other area stores which have since converted into Goodwill locations. The location on El Camino is also the Thrift Town that was featured in the 2017 movie “Lady Bird” which was written and directed by Sacramento native Greta Gerwig.
