This weekend, May 2-4, King’s Home Thrift Stores in Birmingham, Pinson and Hanceville are cutting ribbons and celebrating their grand openings! All weekend, each store will have 25% off everything plus grand opening parties each day. Don’t miss all the food and fun for a great cause. Plus, it’s FREE!
The Better Stores
Over the weekend, there will be grand opening celebrations happening at each location. There will also be a free buffet BBQ dinner, activities for the kids, King’s Home Thrift Store gift cards, King’s Home Prodigal Pottery pieces and more. If you want to shop some great secondhand items—for 25% off might I add—and support a great cause, you don’t want to miss this.
“We are honored to serve customers with new inventory daily, updated stores, and the best prices. Even better and unlike for-profit thrift stores, 100% of proceeds go to helping abused youth, moms and kids at King’s Home find hope in life… When you shop at King’s Home Thrift Stores, you are making an eternal difference in the lives of many.”Lew Burdette, President of King’s Home

Why This is Such a Big Deal
King’s Home of Alabama is a statewide non-profit organization which provides essential services to abused youth, moms, and children fleeing domestic violence. They operate 22 residential group homes on six campuses and serve all 67 counties of the state. But over the last year, they’ve faced major financial struggles.
They lost their partnership with America’s Thrift Stores, which stripped them of $750,000 in annual funding.
Lew Burdette: “Losing $750,000 in funding was a heartbreaking disappointment, especially for our residents who need help the most, but God has blessed us with this opportunity to begin recouping some of this lost revenue. The public needs to know that now 100% of their donations go to King’s Home because, in the past, America’s Thrift Stores kept a large majority of the profits.”
Donate with Better Bins
Can’t make it to the event? You can still support the cause by donating gently used clothing and household items to the stores! You can drop off donations at their coral-colored Better Bins around Central Alabama, at one of their three stores, or call them at 205.506.6009 to schedule a pick-up or do it online here!
