(Press Release) – Nifty Thrifty, located in the Maricopa Business Center on Honeycutt Road, is winding down its business. The thrift store has provided a variety of household goods and will be liquidating all of it’s inventory. Due to the economy and some personal challenges the store was never able to gain sufficient momentum to be profitable.
According to John Zolyniak it has been a difficult decision to close the business. He and his family would like to thank the people of Maricopa for their business. The thrift store has made charitable contributions of clothing and household items to those in need.
The inventory liquidation process begins immediately and will continue through the end of March. The Landlord, Kirk Shroyer, stated that Zolyniak is transitioning his lease and all tenant obligations amicably and professionally.

“In the very near future, people seeking to stock gift stores, select merchandise for resale or furnish hotels and restaurants will be able to do so with one stop to the Phoenix Mart in Casa Grande,” said Pinal County Supervisor David Snider who has worked with project participants for two years to bring the project to Arizona.
“The Phoenix Mart will participate in the U.S. Customs & Immigration Service’s EB-5 program which offers incentives for job creation and investment in areas of high unemployment,” Snider explained. “Phoenix must generate at least 3,000 permanent full-time jobs for U.S. citizens.”
