I love this thrift store, which is on Macon Center Drive (not on Palmer!!). I have donated a lot of things and bought just as much! The people who work there are super-nice. Today, Oct 29, 2021, everything in the store except Christmas stuff was 50% off. I got a whole set of dishes, 4 mugs, and 4 adorable placemats with moose on them for $6.40. It's a nonprofit and I am pretty sure they feed people with the money they make.

Very clean and things are priced well. I go several times a week and haven't walked out with empty hands. Also the main place I donate too.

About CareNet

The Macon County Care Network, also known as CareNet, is a non-profit, tax exempt corporation, established in 1988, by churches of Macon County, North Carolina. CareNet is located in Franklin, NC.

We are a non-denominational ministry

which serves as a central location to provide relief for those in crisis. When help from other agencies is either unavailable or insufficient, CareNet provides food and limited financial assistance with other necessities, such as prescriptions, utilities, fuel, and rent on an emergency basis.

CareNet is supported by churches,

donations, grants, and the CareNet Thrift Store (formerly Bargains Galore). The store was started in 1998 to raise money for CareNet clients and program costs. CareNet is fortunate to have wonderful partnerships within the community that host annual fundraisers to support our missions!
