I think it's worth pointing out that in "the strip" aka Hamilton Mountain there are quite a few thrift stores that have taken the concept and hybridized it with big box suburban shopping. Take for example Value Village or more locally Talize.

So it's not like people shopping in "the strip" are unaware of being ecologically conscious or more specifically thrifty.

Then again many of these places are mostly car dominated and on the peripheral of larger Smart Centres(R) style suburban resident traps. I like to them of them as a venus fly trap that preys on cars and prefers Mastercard. Pedestrians, transit users and cyclists too light a snack to satiate it's voracious appetite for volume purchasing.

Also Capitalist, I'm so glad we have a resident troll! Every good discussion has to have somebody play the fool. Sincerely, thank you.
