Money Saver shows you how to score bargains while helping the community through the end of January.

The Thrift Shoppe Trail begins Saturday, Dec. 19, and runs through the end of January. Shoppers get a card with all the thrift stores taking part in the trail. Each time a customer stops into one of the eight participating thrift stores, they receive a stamp for that store. Once four stamps are collected, it means savings.

Thrift stores from eight Durham and Orange County non-profits are taking part including:

The Scrap Exchange - Durham
Pennies for Change - Durham
Durham Economic Resource Center
Durham Rescue Mission - Durham
TROSA - Durham
The Salvation Army - Durham
PTA Thrift Store - Carrboro and Chapel Hill
Club Nova - Carrboro

"Every time they get four stamps, they'll be able to turn that card in at any store for five dollars off a 10-dollar purchase," said Jeff Stern of the TROSA Thrift Store in Durham.

Stern said there is no limit to how many coupons that customers can accumulate.

"If you get four (stamps) on one and four on another, you'll be able to use five dollars off at each store," Stern said.

In addition to being a good deal for shoppers, the Thrift Shop Trail helps to promote the need for donations.

"So, it's not just about the shopping, it's also about the giving," Stern said.

Terry Pannick, of Pennies For Change Thrift Store, said the money raised for the non-profits through thrift stores is extremely important.

"That's the importance of a thrift store, because it's a continuous funding source," Pannick said.
