Where Shopping makes cents

Consider Donating to Thrifty Alternatives

Need a little more room in the closet or house? Why not donate your gently used clothes, house wares, books, puzzles, games, DVD's, toys, knick-knacks, candles, decorations, jewelry and accessories to Thrifty Alternatives? You can clear out the items you don't need and help Productive Alternatives at the same time. Thrifty Alternatives is located at 802 Jenny Avenue, Perham, Minnesota.

Thrifty Alternatives has a green side! All clothing, shoes and other items that are not sold in the store are baled for recycling and shipped to other outlets. The more we collect, resell or recycle, the more opportunities become available for the individuals we serve.

Due to space or liability reasons, we cannot accept the following items: Electronic Devices, Large Furniture, Baby Equipment, Bicycles, Mattresses, or Large Exercise Equipment.


Come and check out our clean and well organized thrift store where there is something for everyone. It is a pleasant shopping experience for all ages!
