With a plethora of thrift stores in Fargo, there is bound to be one close to home loaded with all kinds of treasures. From infusing your closet with more style to outfitting your ever-growing kids or finding items for your home, our Guide to Thrift & Consignment Stores in Fargo-Moorhead has all the places to find amazing deals!
Thrifting takes some practice, so if you are not accustomed to it here are three main tips for your typical thrift store:
- Go with an open mind. If there is something specific you are looking for this might take a few trips to the same or different stores. Otherwise, free your mind and look for colors, textures or patterns that draw your eye to narrow down options and save time.
- Go frequently. Once you are familiar with a couple of stores, their layouts and what they seem to have, pop in occasionally to see what’s new and if they have something you are looking for.
- Watch for sales and discounts. On top of the already reasonable prices, many second-hand stores in the community also have regular sales. You can become a member and get emails/texts to be notified when these happen.
There are many reasons why you may choose to buy second-hand; you value your money and perhaps have a tight budget, you value the search and thrill of finding that perfect item, or you could value the environment and see how this is a more sustainable way to shop.
Whatever your reason, here is a guide to find the thrift stores in Fargo that will quickly become your favorites!
Note: Please check with each store for their updated guidelines and policies due to COVID-19. Stores may not be allowing the use of dressing rooms and may have changed their return policies.
