Monochrome Community in Jeddah gathers thrift shoppers in one place

JEDDAH: The practice of purchasing secondhand items is a little uncommon in Saudi society, which makes the Monochrome Thrift Shop distinctive.

Faris Al-Manea, founder of Monochrome Thrift Shop, noticed that there was a lack of the thrift shop concept in Jeddah, which made him initiate it as a small business idea.  

“The major reason I created the thrift store at first was that I was a thrifter and saw that Jeddah didn’t have many thrift stores at the time,” Al-Manea told Arab News.
