Our values



As an Area Manager I’m constantly juggling competing priorities and finding the right solutions for my customers and our business.  Energy at Thrifty means never giving up - thinking outside the box and finding new and efficient ways to solve problems!




We’re innovative, and sometimes innovation comes with risk. At Thrifty we have the courage to take risks. We are empowered to speak up and we have the courage to admit mistakes and fix them.




At Thrifty we know that no one person has all the answers - the best solutions come from discussion and teamwork. We really listen to each other - Everyone’s opinion matters!




We not only own our triumphs - we own our failures. We aren’t afraid to ask for advice or help - no one gives us the responsiblity we take it!
