View Full Version : Thrift store name?

05-24-2005, 12:35 PM
I've just rented a nice piece of property in Peobody, MA for $1700/month. My business partner and I are starting a thrift store. We will be selling furniture, games, electronics, books, household stuff, etc. The products will good quality and heavily discounted. The store will be well lit, clean and professional, yet comfy.

My business parnter's name is Dan and my name is Eric if it matters. I haven't come up with anything good yet. It should be catchy, yet not lame. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Suggestions from friends: "Family Thrift" "Discount Botique" "DnE Discounts" "D and E Discounts"

Just a couple of ideas...

"Second Time Around" or "2nd Time Around"
"The Attic" (since this is where people usually find things they have forgotten they had, and can now use again).....or any version thereof, (i.e. Dan's Attic, Eric's Attic, Discount Attic, etc.)
"Second-Hand Smiles" (although probably a little too girly of a name)
"Dan and Eric's Thrift Store" (America's Thrift Store is very popular here)

That's just off the top of my head while doing 10 other things, I will think on it and let you know if I come up with anything else.

Good luck to both of you!!

"Family Thrift" sounds like a decent one to me. Some ideas I'd personally consider if I were you are:

-Thrift Nation
-Thrift World
-Value World

Basically something catchy and gives off that it's a thrift shop.

In my city, the nearest thrift shop to me is simply called "Phil's Stuff". Inside is Phil, and his stuff---it's not a clever or amazing name, but I think it translates well to a thrift store that maybe doesn't want to associate too heavily with bargains or with pricey antiques. He deals both out of the shop, so why specify in the name something that he doesn't hold to?

Attic sounds dusty to me. "D and E's Stuff". Vague, yes. Intentionally so!

I like the names that used the word "Attic" myself! Bargain Basement is kind of catchy, but I think it also implies cheap, dirty stuff....whereas Attic sort of suggests intrigue. Isn't it funny how they're both storage places but can have completely different connotations??

$1700 is a lot of rent to pay for a Thrift shop. Although if i had to suggest a name. I would say be direct, and straight to the point. I would suggest you use your name followed by Thrift shop. it would read like "For The Cause Thrift Shop". I think that would be a great name.

Name suggestion? "Cheap S**t here"..... it might certainly make people curious! But I would put in the asterisks...

I think you can get more profit if you contact with a business broker who can sell your business in the market in you favour. In this way, you can get more profit as you can sell singles thing of your business. But first you responsiblity to study your all business in which you have advantages and disadvantages on sale the business.
