Unique. What a great name for the thrift store/bargain warehouse in Wheaton. Unique has aisle after aisle (upon many more aisles) of one-of-a-kind finds, from clothes and home goods, to electronics, furniture, books, and much more. Someone else’s cast-offs might just be your treasure, and shopping at Unique is like one big prize hunt. And for such low, low prices, you can afford to grab whatever catches your eye. Go green with a trip to Unique and discover the fun of second hand shopping. And while you’re there, pop next door to the bazaar – a year-round flea market with handmade items and discount services onsite (including the occasional haircut!).
There is plentiful parking in the lot on Veirs Mill Road, but be prepared for a crowd if you visit on a discount day. Unique is huge, but attracts throngs of people when the items are marked down to move. Unique is open daily from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. (closes at 7 p.m. on Sundays).
