ALBANY, GA (WALB) – In the mood to spend a little money? You can go shopping and help a good cause at the same time.

The Albany Advocacy Resource Center Thrift Store begins a spring sale Monday. The prices are already low, but during the sale, you can get clothing and glassware for 50% off.

That means some items will be less than a dollar each. In addition to the great prices, you'll also be helping people with disabilities work.

Thrift store manager Matthew Barnes said, "We have great items at very reasonable prices and it helps individuals with disabilities get employment and maintain employment."

The ARC Thrift Store is at 901 Pine Avenue. The spring sale runs from March 22nd through April First.
