Is owning a thrift store profitable?

The average profit on thrift stores is pretty low because of all the costs to having a physical location. For-profit thrift stores pay taxes of up to 30% on profits and then owners pay taxes again on their income. You can save a lot of this money by making your thrift store a limited liability corporation (LLC).
