[Enid, OK] – Park Avenue Thrift’s Outdoor Outlet returns this year on Saturday, September 23rd from 10am – 2pm just west of Park Avenue Thrift, outside on 150 W. Park Street.
“We had our first Outdoor Outlet in July of 2022, and it was such a fun event. Our thrifters loved it, so we knew we wanted to bring it back this year,” said Stela Jantzen, Park Avenue Thrift Executive Director. “We wanted to make it bigger and better than last year. We decided to move it to a bigger location and Park Street was the perfect spot.”
Park Avenue Outdoor Outlet is an outdoor fill-a-bag sale where you bring your own plastic grocery bag and fill it up with items that will be available for purchase at the event site. Clothing, housewares, media, linens, craft items, jewelry, electronics, hardware, and toys will be items for sale at the Outdoor Outlet. You are encouraged to bring your own plastic grocery bags, and whatever items you can fit in your bags will be $2 a bag.
“We have so much fun at these events, and love seeing both familiar and new faces coming out to treasure hunt. There will be so many amazing items to purchase!” says Malvin Arter, Park Avenue Thrift Operations Manager. “Park Avenue employees will be on hand to restock throughout the event, and to help answer any questions. Just look for the Park Avenue Crew t-shirt!”
There is no limit to how many bags you bring and fill. Cash/card accepted but cash preferred. Registers will be outside at the event so you can shop the Outlet then pay for your bag(s) at their outdoor checkout table. All items are first come, first serve, no holds, and all sales are final. Park Avenue Thrift asks that you do not take filled Outdoor Outlet bags inside the store.
“Since we have more space for our Outdoor Outlet, we invited friends to be a part of the fun! We will have El Monchis Snacks and Kona Ice set up selling delicious treats and Enid Axe will have their mobile trailer out,” Jantzen says.
Park Avenue Thrift is an Oklahoma 501(c)(3) that exists to strengthen the Enid community and serve others by collecting donations, running a top-notch thrift store, and giving the proceeds to Enid nonprofits that invest in quality-of-life initiatives.
