Local shoppers know it's nifty being thrifty.

A desire to save money while shopping has kept the area's numerous thrift and consignment shops in business, including six stores owned by Blue Ridge Hospice.

Blue Ridge Hospice opened its newest thrift store in Strasburg during a grand opening last week.

The store sells used clothing, shoes, accessories such as purses and jewelry, furniture and household and children's items.

Linda Roberts, Blue Ridge Hospice community liaison. said the opening comes after months of planning to bring a store to Strasburg.

"We thought this was an area that would embrace a thrift shop and wanted to bring service in that community because we cover Strasburg with our hospice care," she said.

All of the proceeds raised from the thrift store will be used to provide financial assistance to residents who can't afford hospice care. Roberts said the new location will allow them to care for more patients.

"We're providing excellent merchandise at good prices and also providing a good resource for people donating items," said Roberts, adding that stores are always in need of donated clothing. "They don't have to worry about where their donations are going because they're going to Blue Ridge Hospice, which never turns anybody away, so it's a really good situation all around."

She said Blue Ridge Hospice has plans to open up more thrift shops in addition to its locations in Front Royal, Stephens City, Winchester, Berryville and Purcellville.
