A local thrift store is closing after nearly 60 years
WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – A Wichita thrift store that started as a small garage sale decades ago is closing its doors.
The Economic Corner, which was operated by First Presbyterian Church, was permanently closed due to structural damage to the building.
One volunteer told KSN Economy Corner that it is a valuable community resource.
“All the volunteers are very sad,” Chris Alexander said. “It’s almost like a grieving process. It helped, and some of the regulars who shopped there came out and offered their condolences.”
The final sale will be held at Grace Presbyterian at 5002 E. Douglas Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
