The Best Deals in Laramie

Nu2U- Clothes

Nu2U, located at 116 E Custer, is my personal favorite place to buy clothes. The store has clothes that are donated and consigned, so a lot of the clothes you find are brand new! This eccentric little shop is a wonderful place to sell your clothes and a couple weeks later (hopefully someone has bought your items) and buy new ones. Nu2U is a place of circulation and groove.
Bart’s Flea Market
Bart’s is an adorable and quirky shop located off of 3rd Street, south of Interstate 80. I love the cheap jewelry they carry, but Bart’s also offers antiques, collectables, furniture and much more.

The Clothing Cottage

Another great place to get used clothes is the Clothing Cottage located at 310 University Avenue. The Clothing Cottage is open from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Tuesday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. The Clothing Cottage only accepts donations and their employees are all volunteers. The Clothing Cottage sells clothes, shoes, house hold items, and jewelry.

Safeway- Gas

The cheapest place in town to get gas is at Safeway. Do you want cheaper gas? If you register for a Safeway card, for every $100 you spend on groceries, you get 10 cents off a gallon at the pump. That’s some really cheap gas!

Walmart- Price Match

As everyone who has seen the television commercials, Walmart has some of the lowest prices in town. But if you do a little research, Walmart will match any price their competitors advertise. Just bring a coupon or advertisement to the register and the cashier will match the competitor’s price!

Farmer’s Market- Produce

Every Friday, now through September, Laramie has a farmer’s market from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on First Street and Grand Avenue. You can find lots different kinds of things at the farmer’s market. What I have found to be the most cost effective was the produce. They also have really great breads, cheeses, jewelry, and occasionally a hamburger vender. Parking is a little hard to find so I suggest parking by Nu2U and walking a couple blocks north. Don’t forget your cash as most venders won’t accept credit or debit cards, and bring bags for your stuff!
