Bakery Thrift Stores offer past-dated baked goods at a fraction of the cost. You can get day-old bread for 50 cents. We learned this after asking our fellow passengers, “What the heck is a bakery thrift store,” visions of donated, somehow ironic loaves passing through our head.
We sped by to elsewhere but if we had gone in we think it might’ve gone something like this. Sweet, simple, cheap, and a little sad.
Across the street was a Goodwill, and the Merita connected via parking lot to a Family Dollar. Apparently we were crossing the Charlotte gravity well of savings.
We’re jealous, if there was a bakery outlet store near us, we’d totally hit it up! — BEN POPKEN
