Lancaster Mall is pleased to welcome In for a Pound.

In For A Pound is a thrift store that is operated by the organization East Coast Rag and Bone. The store charges $1.99 per pound of clothing and is located in the old International Clothiers location.

A portion of the store’s profits will be donated to One Change.

According to Aaron Peters, a student who was hired by Rag and Bone through the SEED program, an entire outfit usually weighs about 1.5 lbs. “If you were to purchase two pairs of jeans at the store you could expect to pay about $2 if I had to guess,” said Peters.

Along with accepting donations through their bins, the store will also be purchasing clothing by the garbage bag at 25 cents per pound.
