I love what they sell - lots of clothing, a bit of a hunt for that amazing find.... but they use staples to put tags on clothing! This means ANYTHING that is a jersey, a knit, any fabric with a fine weave -- ends up with holes where the tags were attached.
It's crazy! Why on earth do they not use clothing tags? Staples have blunt rough ends, great for paper, not so much for clothing you don't plan to throw away.
Frankly, I'd go a lot more often to their store if they didn't use STAPLES on the clothing. It's a lot harder than it needs to be to find good stuff, because they ruin so much of it when they "tag" it. ARGH.
Just Getting Worse – Shady! I was shown an item in one of their cases by an associate, after inspecting it & ready to purchase it, I asked for the baggie to be resealed. It was rudely whisked away by a different associate & given back to me with the price “INCREASED”! What the heck? This is not good business practice & is unbelievable.
Something shady is going on around here.
I do NOT recommend this store and will not donate to the V V's anymore.
LOTS of stuff, big store, prices a little high, NO credit/debit – I am pretty sure that this thrift is a for profit thrift. I don't think they donate to any known charity. The store is huge and they have a large men's and women's section. Prices on jeans are pretty steap, as well as anything namebrand. You can get vintage clothing for a pretty decent price, as well as accessories, and linens. I have never found any worth-while furniture or home decor, mostly junk. There are lots of clothes some come prepared to DIG! I can't even go through the shirt section there are soo many. Down side, this place is CASH ONLY, although there is an ATM on the other side of the parking lot.
