Founders of Pulaski Free Store hope to inspire others  
Reported by VPM News’ Angie Miles 

In Southwest Virginia, there’s a new store that needs no price tags. That’s because everything on the shelves is completely free. Community members donate what they don’t need to the Pulaski Free Store, such as household goods, food and toys. The store’s founders say it’s a mutual aid hub and they hope to inspire others to start similar ventures in their own communities.
