Twice Nice Thrift Store 


The ACCAP governing board voted unanimously to close the store after a thorough discussion of the pros and cons of remaining open.  It wasn't a staff decision.  The actual out of pocket losses over the last five years from Twice Nice operations was in excess of $300,000.  The landlord was only willing to make slight concessions on the rent and we understand that Good Will plans to open a store in the vicinity of Twice Nice.  With that information the Board came to the conclusion that the store would continue to lose $50-70K a year over the lease period and, based on their fiduciary responsibility, had no choice but to close the store.
The Thrift store industry has dramatically changed in the last 7 years since we opened Twice Nice and the economics of the business makes it nearly impossible for a small store like Twice Nice to break even.
