I was in a hurry but I did find a few things for my granddaughters. They liked the learning activity books that I found.
For a ministry that is suppose to help and support the poor and homeless, the prices are overwhelming! How does a homeless person afford these item??
Lots of product , reasonable prices and friendly help.
This is been one of my favorite thrift stores for some time now. I would have easily given it a five stars up until about 4 months ago when I noticed the prices going up. I haven't been in for a few weeks so I thought I'd stop in this afternoon. Right away I found myself thinking "what in the hell is going on with these prices?" The prices exceed Goodwill and are not far off of Walmart & Target. I mean... $19.99 to $29.99 for winter coats? $10.99 for jeans? $9.99 for sweaters? $10.99 for shoes? I understand there's overhead to be considered but, it's VERY LITTLE OVERHEAD when you consider that their entire inventory is FREE. They enjoys a 100 profit on everything that's laid at their door. I also understand that the revenue generated by "The Family Store(s)" support Salvation Army programs but I don't see their programs at at work in the community, EVER. There are so many families are struggling right now to afford just the bare minimum to maintain their households. Many, like myself, turn to thrift stores to make the most of ever dollar. The Salvation Army should be there to support the community who's donations supports them. tToo much taking, not enough giving! Shame on you salvation army. ☹️
