At Vinnies we are grateful for each customer that steps through our doorway. As many already know, with each purchase from our shop, you're directly supporting our food pantry which feeds nearly 1900 Peterboroughians monthly. There is no middle man for us, your purchase truly is making a difference locally; that's why use the saying "Feel Good Shopping" - because you can feel good about your purchase on many levels.
While our shop is filled with plenty of regular customers, some of you may be new or perhaps are unable to make it in often. If you come in often enough you may have caught on to some shopping secrets. But for those who don't, we thought that today, we would go behind the scenes at Vinnies and share some insider secrets.
Here are five tips to make the most of your next shopping trip at Vinnies!
1. Calling all book lovers - everyday is book day.
Have you stopped in and checked out our book section lately? It's incredibly well organized thanks to volunteers and staff, and there is a huge selection! Everything from fiction and children's books, to nonfiction like cookbooks, religious texts and more. The prices can't be beat.
