For most of the past decade, this well-managed thrift store, operated by the nonprofit Disabled American Veterans, has been known among its loyal constituents as the DAV Thrift Store. Two years ago, though, its operators changed the name to Red Racks. "We're creating a brand-specific store," says Doug DePew, its president. "But it's still raising funds for disabled veterans." Regulars swear by the place. "It's super-organized," one shopper tells us. "There's a lot of junk, but it's good junk." And its fast-moving good, uh, junk. "We rotate everything out of the store in a four-week period," DePew confirms. To do that, Red Racks puts up some alluring sales. Go on a Sunday, for instance, to pick up specially marked items at four for 25 cents. "I bought an antique Jenny Lind bed for a quarter," that shopper tells us. Nothing junky about that.
