The Green Boomerang opened on Coffeen Avenue in 2011. In 2017 the thrift store relocated to Downtown Sheridan in 2017 and moved into the old Dan’s Western Wear location and the Green Boomerang rebranded as Urban Thrift Sheridan. The best part of Urban Thrift is that all proceeds from the thrift store go directly to The Hub on Smith, a Center for All Generations. By shopping at Urban Thrift, you help serve the older adults in our community! Erin Kranz, the manager at Urban Thrift, said, “We have been blessed by the community of Sheridan, we have the nicest donations from houseware to furniture to clothes and shoes, it’s all really nice stuff.” Erin stated that the community is very generous.

When Erin and Meredith Sopko, Director of Development at The Hub on Smith, were asked what their favorite part of Urban Thrift is, they both agreed that the people and the mission are most important to what they do. They stated that they are here to help the community and there is a plethora of opportunities and adventure through The Hub on Smith and their services. Erin stated that “Urban Thrift is the first phase for visitors to get in the know about the Hub and the businesses they help serve. Once they get in the store, we have a lot of opportunity to talk to them about what we’re all about”.

Another awesome aspect to Urban Thrift is that they have a lot of volunteers in the store. Erin said with sincerity, “Volunteers work at this location and we couldn’t survive without our volunteers.” It goes to show that the people of Sheridan really care about the mission as well, to celebrate, embrace, and serve older adults for the betterment of our community.

Please continue to support Urban Thrift during construction. The sidewalks are open and there are several free public parking lots available to patrons. Urban Thrift has also fancied up their back-alley entrance to be a beacon for travelers traveling down Brooks Street. Look for the purple and teal doorway and coming soon – flower pots!
