With the opening of the SPCA Thrift Store on Third Street in Sidney, there are now seven thrift outlets in the downtown core.
With only six book outlets, perhaps we should consider renaming Sidney as a thrift town.
Thrifty Foods would love it and perhaps they can be persuaded to contribute several thousand dollars to promote the unofficial change.
This would attract more customers from the southern Peninsula than books do.
Perhaps projects like Sandown and Gateway might be compelled to provide free commercial space to non-profit and charitable enterprises.
