“No more shoes piled up high!!”

The same goes for clothes, toys, kitchen items and other goods free for the taking at the renovated Bruktikken thrift store, which is reopening this week. Gone are the tables that goods used to be stacked on; in their place are shelves and clothing racks where everything is far better sorted and much easier to browse through.

“As we know people, are desperate for us to reopen, we did as best as we could today to get some things back in the store and will be reopening tomorrow,” a post at the thrift store’s Facebook page announced Wednesday.

The store will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. during its “debut.” It is also expanded its regular opening times to three days a week (instead of two): from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.

The store was closed in mid June for the renovation, which volunteers originally hoped to complete by June 30. But delays in carpentry work set the schedule back a few weeks.

About Post Author

Mark Sabbatini

I'm a professional transient living on a tiny Norwegian island next door to the North Pole, where once a week (or thereabouts) I pollute our extreme and pristine environment with paper fishwrappers decorated with seemingly random letters that would cause a thousand monkeys with a thousand typewriters to die of humiliation. Such is the wisdom one acquires after more than 25 years in the world's second-least-respected occupation, much of it roaming the seven continents in search of jazz, unrecognizable street food and escorts I f****d with by insisting they give me the platonic tours of their cities promised in their ads. But it turns out this tiny group of islands known as Svalbard is my True Love and, generous contributions from you willing, I'll keep littering until they dig my body out when my climate-change-deformed apartment collapses or they exile my penniless ass because I'm not even worthy of washing your dirty dishes.
