People who love thrift stores really love thrift stores. And they were gaining in popularity well before Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" made its best attempt to ruin that trend. Data show that in a given year, approximately 16 percent to 18 percent of Americans will shop at thrift stores.
