Thrift Store Opens To

Benefit Furry Friends

It’s only the first day at the Super Heroes in Ripped Jeans Thrift Shop and business is already bustling. “We had people here the moment we opened!” said volunteer staff member Emily Phillips, Oneonta, seen above tagging clothing. At right, Irene Bourgeois, Oneonta, takes care of customer Barbara Moore, New Lisbon, who was going home to bring them donations. Located at 4 South Main Street in Oneonta, next to Casey’s Barber Shop, the new store offers customers gently used and new clothing, household items, antiques, collectable items, jewelry, locally made crafts, gently used pet supplies and more! They are currently open Thursday – Saturday 12-6pm. All proceeds go to support Super Heroes in Ripped Jeans, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit pet rescue registered with the New York State Department of Agriculture who just last year helped find homes for nearly 300 animals. “If we can get some well behaved puppies, we’ll bring them into the store!” said Phillips. “We will even have a wall of pet photos behind the counter of animals that people can adopt.”(Ian Austin/

    And after being talked to like this …
    Will continue to give any/ and all donations to SPCA store in Annex as they are appreciative
