Daily Staff Report

Does the Thrifty Shoppe in Eagle have the best restroom in the area? The staff and customers certain-ly think so: “What a sanctuary!” exclaimed one customer.

Cheryl Braucht, supervisor at the Thrifty Shoppe, admits she is a restroom fanatic, which is what led her to create a public restroom people would enjoy using. Braucht enlisted the help of all her staff. She says it was Fabiola Chavez (supervisor in training) who started the transformation one day when she deep-cleaned and got rid of all the clutter.Clutter is something you’ll find little of at the Eagle branch of Vail Valley Cares’ two Thrifty Shoppes. The Edwards location does a much larger volume of business and so keeping it tidy can be a challenge. Even self-confessed “over-organizer” Fabiola agreed it would be hard to bring her idiosyncrasies into play at the Edwards location.

In the mean time, frequent customers at the Eagle location love the little artistic changes the staff is making.And it’s not just interior decorating; customers are saying other stores could learn from the customer service delivered at this Thrifty Shoppe. New customers are encouraged to enroll them in the frequent customer program before the store moves from its current location on 2nd street to Chambers Avenue in Eagle.

So stop in, relax in the candle-lit restroom and even sign the guest book!

This is for the young lady that stood in line at Gypsum Daze with the funnel cakes. I have something of hers she lost. She was wearing a white sweatshirt-style zip up jacket with a blue shirt and faded blue jeans. She had blonde hair. If she could call 401-0199, I would like to return what she lost. Thank you.
