Savers (from what I understand) is a For-Profit thrift store which means it doesn't really help out the community like Goodwill and others supposedly do. So basically, people donate stuff, they price it, and keep the money. Good for the environment, yes, but doesn't sound like a great store to me.

Savers is a thrift store/second-hand store based in Seattle, WA. They have stores in Canada known as Value Village (Village des Valuers in Quebec).

They're opening one in the Stop & Shop shopping center in Medford, NY where Steve & Barry's (and before that, S&S itself) used to be.

Savers must be opening a store in Bristol, Connecticut. There was an ad on Careerbuilder.com that they're looking for a manager in Bristol, Connecticut. I wonder where they're going. Perhaps in the old Stop & Shop on Famington Ave next to TJMAXX. I just don't think they'd subdivide the old Shaw's.

Saver's is opening in Meriden, CT. They're taking over the old Circuit City, which itself was part of an old Super A&P Foodmart.

The Medford, NY Savers just opened last week, and it's better than Salvation Army or Goodwill.

They're also opening another in Holbrook, NY in a few weeks in a former Circuit City.

They are in fact opening in the old Stop & Shop next to TJ Maxx in Bristol, CT. There are signs in the window announcing they are hiring Entry Level Managers and to Contact Mr. Torres and gave the phone number of their Waterbury Store. So far nothing is listed on their website.

Went to Savers in Bristol with my Mom today. It looks like the other 2 Savers I've been to - Meriden and Waterbury. It looks nothing like the old Stop & Shop.

Savers is closing down their Waterbury, Connecticut store on November 16th! I wonder if the Big Lots next door will expand.

I am kind of shocked by this. These type of thrift stores are all the rage now. Wonder what happened.

Yes they are especially after last year's hit song "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore and Lewis.  Maybe they had a problem with theft. Although I usually shopped at The Bristol store because I go to Bristol more often than I go to Waterbury I thought the Waterbury store was nicer than the one in Bristol as is the one in Meriden.

Only one review of this store on Yelp, but I wonder if there's a grain of truth in it...

So a friend of mine who is still a subscriber to the paper version of the Waterbury newspaper told me the article said the store is closing because sales have been slow and that no other Connecticut stores would be closing. (Where have we heard that before?)
