Thrift store smell

I don't know if thrift stores are doing something different, or if my nose has gotten more sensitive with age, but I'm having a horrible time getting the "thrift store smell" out of clothes that I buy there (multiple chains, multiple stores).

Typically, I run a wash with a second rinse and fill the bleach dispenser all the way with white vinegar. Then I hang the clothes outside for 1-2 weeks. Even so, I'm finding that I have to wear the clothes and wash them again for upwards of 5-10 more times to get the smell out. Ideas? Suggestions?
