  1. I’m currently working in Preston Deseret Industries thrift store. One day I was in the clothing room sorting when all of the sudden the paper towel dispenser came on. I was the only one in there, nobody came in and it just turned on. So in my mind I thought it was just because I used it last, but the more I thought the more I convinced myself that the thrift store is haunted by some old couple or someone died in there and is now haunting it.
