Trussville follows through with plan to block thrift store

TRUSSVILLE, AL (WBRC) - The Trussville City Council plans to make another move to block a thrift store from opening.

On Monday night,  the city council approved a purchase agreement for  $5.6 million to buy the shopping center where "America's Thrift Store" wanted to open. The city will also have to buyout the lease for the thrift store.

City leaders say the thrift store did not fit Trussville's master plan for downtown.
