Store Manager Lacks Honesty & Trust – Do not donate your items to this store!
The store manager lacks loyalty and honesty. On May 5, 2011, I went into the store, showed interest in two chairs. I paid cash for one chair and had to go to the bank to get cash for second chair. The manager mentioned that he would hold the chair and allow me time to go to bank. When I returned, the chair had a sold sign attached. I expressed my concerns… (I drove 20 minutes, picked up my credit card, withdrew money and returned to store within 20 minutes.
The cashier was very rude. He stated that, the chair had been sold and there was nothing he could do. I remained in the store until closing and the chair was never picked up. I believe one of the employees (manager) was interested in the chair.
The Salvation Army is a non-profit organization. Items are donated and sold for a profit. Many of the valuable or designer items are taken by employees and never placed on the floor or sold to a family member, friend, etc….. I am very upset and will never shop at The Dover Salvation Army store again.
Stocked exclusively with donated goods, thrift store contributes all earnings to Bible-based rehab programs throughout the world. – In Short
The Salvation Army is an evangelical Christian organization that devotes billions of dollars and thousands of volunteer hours each year to disaster relief, social services and other charitable causes worldwide. With proceeds going directly to adult rehabilitation centers, the Army's many thrift stores play an important role in furthering the organization's mission. Patrons of the stores pick through a diverse selection of moderately worn clothing, as well as second-hand furniture, electronics, books and toys at bargain prices.
Check this store out – This is a good thrift store. Prices are pretty good on clothes - very good on furniture.
If you are in a poverty situation and need assistance you can speak to Captain Nester at the Salvation Army church about working with you on the prices . For example if you are in need of furniture and cannot afford it , you can speak to him about a voucher for an item. You may need to bring some documentation of your income .
