The Best Thrift Store In La Crosse Rootin Crown Thrift Boutique
Dated: December 20 2019
The holidays are here and it can be a difficult financial time for anyone. It’s hard to gift shop for the people you love, especially when you’re on a budget and they deserve the world! Well, I have the perfect solution… Rootin’Crown Thrift Boutique, right here in La Crosse, Wisconsin!
They are a thrifty boutique with a "BUY LOCAL - STAY LOCAL" shopping experience. Their goal is to help Support our local registered & active "non-profit" Organizations, to flourish & grow in numbers from the strength of our local community. Unlike many other classic thrift stores, RootinCrown makes a direct impact on our local community that you can actually SEE. What can be better than that: shopping and supporting the greater good?
Rootin’Crown offers a unique shopping and thrifting experience because you have the option of choosing which one of their many registered local non-profit Organizations you would like to donate your goods towards! Also, as you shop you will also be able to see which organizations your purchases will support individually.
Your purchases will have purpose! Upon check-out, the staff will have you choose one of the local "non-profit" organizations that you would like to donate your entire purchase too! Each item purchased, has a value of 1 point. These points are placed into that organization’s account. Organizations compete on bracket placements, by points earned. Once qualified, those monthly qualifying organizations earn a % of Net Profits raised accordingly to those brackets earned.. All non-qualifying Organizations points roll over into the next month. How cool is that?
If you’re not in the mood to shop you can still help your organization by volunteering! Your time helps generate more sales and donations for that organization. Photos of you volunteering can also be taken and promoted on social media to increase traffic to the organization that you had chosen. They also have a similar point based system based on the hours you volunteer, which is so great!
In 2018, the Rootin’Crown had the pleasure of releasing donated funds in the amount of $26,148.95. The proof is in the pudding that your efforts really work and make a difference. Be sure to check out Rootin’Crown in La Crosse.
