Every time I walk into Thrifty Joe’s I'm greeted with a smile and a wave. That small, welcoming gesture is the introduction to a business defined by their love and passion for literature, film, and music. The staff is knowledgeable in numerous realms of media and often suggests something I’ve never heard of before, which I usually end up liking. Thrifty Joe’s is a delight. (Monte)
Thrifty Joe’s is an invaluable resource for all of my favorite music, games and books. They always have what I'm looking for, and, even when I'm not looking for anything in particular, I find something new and unique to add to my collection! (Matthew Reveles)
Nice place great selection of books and trinkets. They have a USPS which is rad, because the real ones always have super long lines and turtle slow service. These guys are nice and fast. They also have old nes games. How cool is that? The location is a little tucked away. They are in the same lot as the Stein Mart. (Ryan L.)
They have a post office in the back. I usually come in just for that, as it’s much easier to get in and out than the full-service post offices nearby. (David D.)
They have reg nintendo games to buy!!!! enough said! You can also sell your games and books records all sorts of great stuff! Great little place! (Mat P.)
Thrifty Joe’s is a cool little place hidden in the back corner of a strip mall, near a big mega church and a Stein Mart i believe. This place is just a little nook of used books, CDs, games (vintage and newer: see their N-64 selection, pretty nice), vinyl, and some other odd little knick knacks. I dig this place mostly on nostalgia. I love their selection of vinyl. The classic book selection is great as well, there are a ton of quality authors from Camus to Emile Zola you can bet on finding for relatively cheap. Love ya TJ! don’t ever change! (Robert O.)
