The Long Beach Free Store Doesn't Put a Price Tag on Any of Its Items

A store selling all of its items for free may sound too good to be true, but that is exactly what the Long Beach Free Store is doing. Created by the grassroots NPO Catalyst Network of Communities, the Long Beach Free Store offers free items in exchange for nothing.

While patrons can pick and choose any item they want, they are encouraged to donate an item of their own to help the store maintain inventory. Donations are also accepted to help offset the cost of rent and other bills. The store has recently opened and already it is a huge hit with the Long Beach community. Here's hoping this store inspires similar stores around the country to open up.
