The review below sounds like 2 disgruntle employees! I, on the other hand, frequent Carson City several times a month and Classy Seconds is ALWAYS on my list of places to visit.
I have never smelled anything out of the ordinary and find the atmosphere to be most pleasant. I love all the displays that are put up that make my shopping experience feel more like walking into a mall, then a garage sale. There are plenty of items to choose from and always seem to be organized. I really like the boutique as I seem to find treasures in there on every visit. I'm an EBay seller and find many of the items not only look new (in fact, many still with store tags), that I can turn around and sell the items and not only get my cost back but usually make at least a 100% profit. As you would expect, I visit many thrift stores all over the area, but for me to go all the way into Carson for Classy Seconds, means there is a reason I do so!
The people I've noticed working there have always been pleasant, no complaints. However, I find it interesting that some people have nothing better to talk about, then to complain about an establishment that gives back to the community in many ways.
As for allowing ""criminals"" to work there and put in community time, I appreciate that Classy Seconds opens it heart to reach out to those that need help. Thank God, when my son got a ticket for riding his skateboard in the park, that he was able to do community service in Reno. If it wasn't for places like this, our jails might be overrun by ""criminals"" whose only crime was to J-walk! My God, seriously!!!! Get a life ""complainers!!!"" BTW, what makes you an expert on ""criminals""? Are you passing judgment on those that may not be? Again, your words sound like someone who has nothing better to do than cause problems. Thank God most will see your hatred and disregard your review as nothing more than trying to cause an oil spill and hurting those in your path!
For those that are still with me...don't take my word, nor the word of some seriously pissed off ex-employees, go in and look around...smell if you need...get DNA samples of all employees, but make your own decision, and not take the word of those that have no life!
To the person(s) who wrote the first review/comment: How dare you make racist comments about Mexicans. And just in case you don't know the word ""racism"", I've listed the defination below:
racism n. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
You are far from ""superior"" to anyone walking the streets, let alone those that walk into Classy Seconds.
Furthermore, do you have any clue where the money goes that is made by Classy Seconds? They fund a woman's shelter for domestic violence. When you take a stab at an establishment that has proven it's credibility, you take a stab at all woman and children that have been abused and fear for their lives! Shame on you!
Best regards Classy Seconds, thanks for all that you do. I look forward to my weekly visits and will always be a loyal shopper. Thank you for all the good you put back into the community! I wish there were more companies that cared for the community as you do!
