The Maltsev family loves the outdoors. They purchased a property in Dingmans Ferry 11 years ago and have been visiting on weekends and during the summer ever since.

The Pike County Chamber of Commerce was on hand for a grand opening last month at their new business, the Milford Thrift on East Harford Street.

“Milford Thrift is a family owned thrift store that cares about the planet & our community,” said owner Max Maltsev. “We believe in reusing clothing and other accessories for the better benefit of the community. Our mission is to bring quality clothing and accessories to our community at bargain prices to enable everyone to dress well without worrying about the cost.”

The Maltsevs had a clothing and dry-cleaning business in New York City, but the pandemic devastated both their business and their family. At that point, they made the easy decision to permanently move to Dingmans Ferry and establish their business in Milford.

“In time, we are hoping to move closer to Milford, and identify other ways of how we can make a living and contribute to this amazing community,” Maltsev said.

Their shop is located at 214 East Harford Street in downtown Milford. Call them at 646-552-3728.
