The name says it all. they have very nice jewelry and I love their clothing!
Not happy with greeting – I was very disappointed when I entered and was not greeted by staff. The store was not busy, the employees did appear to be stocking. I base my feelings when entering a store on how well the staff interacted and was I greeted upon entrance. I stood at the counter for a while appearing to be interested in something behind the counter and not once did a sales person say may I help you. Unfortunately, I will not be returning to this place.
Never realized I would love consignment this much – I am not one to buy "used" clothing, but I stopped in this shop just to check it out, and now I am a dedicated customer. I wear plus sizes, and there is a very good selection. The clothing, shoes and accessories are in just-like-new condition, as the name of the shop indicates. They are clearly very picky about what they will take. The quality is incredible. I love getting a great deal on like-new items. Many items are, in fact, new with tags on them. The prices are great. I got a brand-new shearling jacket (Coldwater Creek) for only $38 and a pair of Talbots slacks for work for only $11. Most sweaters and pants are in the $12 range. They also have an eclectic selection of housewares. I bought a roasting pan for Thanksgiving for only $11. They also have books, CDs, DVDs and knick-knacks. It's really fun. My friends and I go there frequently, as they have new treasures every day. Fun!
The only negative is that the staff in the back can be rather rude when you're dropping off consignment items. I understand being picky about what you'll take, but rudeness is unwarranted. The lady at the front register is extremely friendly, but a couple women in the back are rude and have a severe attitude problem.
Love this place – Went there with my 2 Girlfriends and we all love this place. There are so many incredible things there from clothing to shoes to handbags. We all got lucky there. With so many incredible things, it's really hard to walk out without something. The prices are very reasonable too. Love their markdowns too. We are going back really soon. We joined their mailing list too for their blowout sales (can't wait)!!!
Great store – It was my first trip to Just Like New and it was great. My daughter and I found some amazing clothes for the fall at great prices. The best part about Micheal's was the fact that it is decorated so nicely. I felt like I was in a charming boutique. What often comes along with a boutique is high Prices, was i surprised:) GREAT PRICES!! ! I will shop here in years to come.
GREAT Consignment Store! – The best consignment store for beautiful clothing and jewelry! Great prices..go to the mall and compare! The staff is friendly and on the ball..people don't like to hear their clothes are out of style. Go to Uptown with your out of style clothes, you might get 50 cents. By FAR the CLEANEST most ORGANIZED CONSIGNMENT store around. Have fun shopping there. They are open 7 days a week!
Great shopping – This place has become my one-stop-shopping. I have found everything I need here; shoes, handbags, fine jewelry, suits, dresses, etc. And they only carry the best (my favorites)? I?ve been to many consignment stores and none compare to Just Like New. They just simply have the best stuff. I consign here too which has been well worth my while. Although I must stress, they try to only take the best so don?t get offended when they turn down your favorite shirt that seen its day. . Why, after coming here for so long, have I decided to write a review? Well, I felt i need to share with everyone that this place must not be missed.
Amazing Finds – I am not what you would consider consignment savvy. I have wanted to however add to my designer collection of clothes without paying full price. I recently stumbled upon Just Like New the other day and I'm still glowing from my amazing Gucci, LV and Coach finds. Most of my purchases still had the original tags. I'm now telling all my friends. It's simply a must before making the trek to crowded department stores or putting up with snooty sales associates at the designer boutiques. I really think that the sales girl who assisted me made all the difference as a consignment newbie. She didn't rush me, established immediate credibility and had excellent suggestions. She wasn't pushy about it either - just showed me how to shop consignment. I look forward to going back!
NEVER SHOP HERE! – The last time I was in just like new in vernon, i was treated so rudely by the staff I will never return. the few times I have previsously been in the store i witnessed a much older woman rudely telling people their clothes aren't "fashionable" I don't think anyone that age knows what's fashionable!
I saw one woman turned away with clothes that were obviously BRAND NEW and still had their original gap tags on them because they weren't "selling" obviously they're doing ok at the gap!
furthermore, everything in the store is way overpriced. i've seen clothes (especially kids) priced the same or MORE as department stores. All the empoyees are extremely rude and not helpful at all. If customer service is important to you, DO NOT shop at just like new.
Awful, rude staff – I was in this store today and couldn't believe what I witnessed. An elderly woman was collecting on her consignment account. When she asked for cash, the salesperson snapped at her and said, "We don't give out cash. We only do checks."
The woman was then instructed to "fetch" her remaining unsold items in the store. The salesperson did nothing to assist her, just said, "On that rack, over there" and pointed. I helped the woman with her items and immediately left.
This isn't the first time I've seen this type of rudeness in this store, and today was the last time I'll ever set foot in that store.
I hope others decide to do the same.
The reviewer on 7/31/09 obviously has some kind of connection to this business. Their merchandise is dated, overpriced and mediocre.
I'd suggest Uptown Consignments like the other reviewr, and also Just Like New in Wallingford. Each place has a professional, friendly staff and reasonable prices.
