Gucci, Movado, Dooney & Bourke, Louis Vuitton—a few of the labels I spotted last night during a sneak peek of the Savers thrift store opening tomorrow, Thursday, September 27, in Ellisville. Yes, y’all. Savers, an international thrift retailer with more than 280 stores across the U.S. and Canada, is finally opening in the St. Louis area.

This Savers location houses over 100,000 items on the sales floor. And, Savers stores get about 5000 new items daily. I got a glimpse at how quickly inventory is renewed when the two Dooney & Bourke bags below were purchased (one by me) and a store associate swiftly restocked the case with two different Dooney bags. I promptly asked if I could see the entire stash. She assumed I was joking though. I wasn’t 🙂

The prices are just right too!
What you’ll find in this new Savers is a well-organized store. Clothing, for example, is organized by item type (skirts, dresses, blouses) and then by size, making the search for treasures a tad easier. I was also impressed by the well-curated collection of clothing for sale. I saw all the labels I regularly shop and love (J.Crew, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor) as well as a sizable selection of items that looked vintage, all for low prices.

This Savers has fairly large fitting rooms for your convenience.
Of course, I didn’t leave Savers empty-handed. Check out my mini haul.

no signs of wear.
Savers will host its grand opening this Thursday at 9 am. If you plan to stop by, sign up for a super Savers cub card to receive alerts about special deals like 50% off clothing days, and enter for a chance to win a $100 gift card.
