cape (azate BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE FRIDAY, JANUARY 3- MONDAY, JANUARY 6, 2014 41 Unfinished Business celebrates 2013 as banner year Thrift shop has been going strong since opening in summer of 2013 After opening in June 2013, Un- finished Business: A Community Thrift Shop is going strong and breaking records, according to owner Lynne Matoy. "2013 has been a whirlwind. The unique concept is taking Sussex County by storm, and we are doing just what we are supposed to be do- ing," said Maloy. Unique among thrift shops Unfinished Business gives 85 percentof its profits away to a different nonprofit organization each year. Traditionally,. thrift shops are owned and operated bythe organizations that get the financial benefits. "Not us," says Maloy.Every year or every two years, a different organization will be chosen to receive sup- port. This year, the profits go to CAMP Rehoboth. "I was a big fan of CAMP Rehoboth before we opened and now, well, I am their biggest cheerleader. CAMP runs great programs, doesn't waste money, is focused and caring all at the same time," said Maloy. The structure is not the only difference in Unfinished Busi- ness versus the traditional thrift shop. It is small, compared to others in the area. "But we are mighty," says.Maloy. "We have 60 to 80 percent turnaround in inventory every 25 days, which means there are always new and interesting treasures to be found. Plus, every day, items at drasti- cally reduced prices are always available." Complaints have been heard that there are too.many thrift shops in the area, and that can have a negative effect on ev- eryone's giving pattern. Maloy disagrees. The more thrift shops that are around, the more thrift- ers are attracted to the area, and the more customers there are for everyone. "It's like fast food marketing of days gone by," says Maloy. "Once one opens, others SUBMITTED PHOTO MILTON RESIDENT HONUO MATHIS, left, and Lewes resident Esther Friend organize the books at Unfinished Business: A Community Thrift Shop.
