Spring cleaning season goes hand in hand with thrift store donations and WDAY learned those stores are very busy right now.

Staff at the Arc Attic Treasures thrift store in Fargo say donations double in the spring and summer. They can see more than 80 cars a day dropping off donations during busy periods.

Donors can help make their job easier by avoiding bringing in big appliances like a stoves or a fridges and make sure the donations are in decent shape and well sorted.

"It's nice when clothes come in one bag and miscellaneous items come in a separate bag too. That makes it easier for us," said Arc Attic Treasure Store Manager, Dawn Nystrom.
