However, don’t rule those small, rural towns out – they can hide some legendary thrifting within their city limits. Some of the top-rated shops include places like Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, in Homewood, Bargain Hunt (see, it’s even in the name!), in Hoover, Opelika, and Huntsville, and Dirt Cheap, in Albertville. Of course, that’s not all of them by any means – but it’s a splendid start.
