Upon going there last week, my mother tells me that the American Council of the Blind Thrift Store in Warrendale will be closing its doors shortly. I used to go there all the time with my mom and they had good stuff once in a while. This really sucks because everything seems to be going out of business in that neighboorhood. Late last year Harry's Department Store closed after being open since the 1930's..I do not wan to to see that area turn into just another detroit neighboorhood where 90% of the open business are car repair shops.

Livernoisyard;
Yeah, but most have english on them as well.

Kova;
lol on the weed thing...thats kinda not so good...things were always kinda pricy at the ACB. Value World prolly helped put them out of business..

it still sucks tho, that Neighboorhood has a lot of potential.

HAH! As soon as the thrift store closes. Then the Arab owners will come and build either a strip mall or a install a mom and pop business.

Maybe if people actaully used the Fruit Markets, we wouldn't have this obesity problem in the city.
