Thrifty Times

If you're a thrifty shopper, you'll be happy to hear about a new store opening on Monday.

Currently located on 6th Street in downtown Panama City, the rescue mission Bargain Center is branching out by opening a second store, this time in Graceville.

The Jackson County Chamber of Commerce is hosting the grand opening ceremony Monday morning.

Last year, the Panama City Bargain Center brought in at least 20 percent of the rescue mission's income.

Donna Rogers, an employee at the Bargain Center, says the mission is there to help anyone they can.

“Help the lost, help the needy. Give them a boost up when they're needing help really bad."

When the Panama City Bargain Center becomes full, employees will now be able to transfer some of the goods to the Graceville store.
