Discount Store
To better reflect his retail business, Mike Scott has officially changed the name of his business from “Charity Shop Wholesale” to “The Discount Store” at 1025 North Adams.

"When we first started Charity Shop, it was just a part-time side business to give back and make some extra money, and then as it’s growing over the last few years, while we still give to charity, a lot of people have the misconception that we are a nonprofit," posted Scott on social media. The previous name confused shoppers and many thought it was a thrift store, but merchandise is new and is 40-percent below Target prices, staff informed. Business improvements of new carpet and extensive organizations have increased the customer base.
