About Thrift Town
Norquist Salvage Corporation is a family-owned business operating fifteen Thrift Town thrift stores in four western states. The company was founded in 1972 by Bud & LaVey Norquist and Steve Moore. Their goal was to make Thrift Town a clean, well-lit, and organized place to shop with well-priced merchandise. The founders were committed to making an honest living, as well as helping to raise funds for charity. This same commitment holds true with the next generation currently running the business.The concept of our business is extraordinary. Not only is our company good for the community, it is also good for our charity partners, the environment, and our crew members. We have built our business on providing a fun work atmosphere, competitive wages and excellent benefits to our employees.
Our Vision Statement:
Committed to Making a Difference Every Day.
Our Mission Statement:
Unifying Crew, Charity and Community to Enrich the World.
Respect, Integrity, Growth, Loyalty & Work-Life Balance
Our Commitment to the Environment:
NSC is proud to have spentÂ four decades dedicated to socially responsible recycling. If the merchandise we sell wasnâ€™t in stores like ours, much of it would end up in our landfills. Buying used instead of new saves time, energy and raw materials that would have been spent to make a new item. We are all proud to be a part of the solution instead of part of the problem for the countryâ€™s waste management problems.
