Best of all, your Nifty Thrifty purchases directly benefit Mason County Senior Activities Center —- now, that’s SHOPPING LOCAL!

The Nifty Thrifty store was conceived by the Mason County Senior Activities Association (MCSAA) in 1988 to provide an on-going revenue source so the Mason County Senior Activities Center could be self-funding. Hattie and John Luhm championed the idea with the help of MCSAA Board President Lou Redman and Center Director Marge Emsley-Brown.

Nifty Thrifty remains the major funding source of MCSAA to this day. After 25 years, the store relocated in September 2013 to the former Activities Center building at 826 W. Railroad Avenue.
