Good will to who? – Seriously??? Who marks the prices for this junk? I was looking for pretty glassware to reuse as candle containers. I noticed they are asking more for some items than what they cost originally, not to mention I can still find the same exact glasses (coke and margarita) at less than what these guys are asking for. I can also find in the same store the exact same thing with two different prices for the item. So much for helping the poor. It seems that most all thrift stores have this same idea of get as much as we can , instead of lets help the poor. The stuff was all free to them, what gives? I'm thinking if you want to donate do it some other way than to drop it off at one of these stores. See what they charge before you try to help those in need. I'm sure there is a better way to help people out. Set it on your drive for free????
new pricing system, way TOOO much for second hand – I recently made my occasional visit to the Olathe Goodwill. The old pricing system was a set price per item..all jeans, skirts, shoes were one price as posted. Now all the items are tagged individually and priced according to brand, and they must think this is a consignment boutique or something. I saw a skirt from target for $6.99 and an Old Navy jacket for $18.99 both items which I know for a fact were only 1/2 off the retail price. I could have bought the items from the store for the same price or less. This worries me because alot of people who shop at these stores do so out of necessity and simply will not be able to afford these marked up prices. I would suggest sticking with shopping the saleracks at your favorite store!
