I remember when Goodwill and Salvation Army sold their jeans for $2 and the nice slacks for $3.50. But not anymore! Outreach still has low, low prices. Recently I found a couple pairs of Liz and Chicos slacks in my size for a mere pittance (with no stains or wear noted anywhere) and once I found a beautiful soft black, satin lined designer all-weather/raincoat in perfect condition. Please, the next time you clean your closet of designer and gently used clothing, or new with tags, or anything that you never wore, bring them here. Many of us appreciate the low prices here and would love to be able to find more high quality clothing for work, and school, and nice casual and play wear for ourselves and our children of all ages. They also carry men's clothing, so nice things for the men, dress shirts, slacks,suits and shoes in good condition would be great to donate here. I have no affiliation with this store, and have only been a customer and donor. But they keep the prices low, even on the high quality items. -Yoella F. This thrift store is awesome...I'm a Mother and always looking for a great deal in price and quality of clothing, this store has both!! I'm telling all my friends and fellow mothers out there they have to come to the Outreach Center!! Great deals, name brand clothing for cheap plus lots of household items and toys! It's wonderful environment to shop it. What more can I say, love this store!! -Mindy G. Every time I go to the Outreach i always find what i need. It's one of the cleanest thrift stores in the area. The staff is nice, the store is very organized and it's nice to have dressing rooms that are spacious. I would definitely recommend this store to a friend! -By Mary S. I have shopped in Gainesville for many years and always find the Outreach being the best thrift store around. They are clean, organized and price items individually!! I have been to Goodwill, Salvation Army and other local stores that price items by their category (such as "jeans", "sweaters", "shorts" etc.) they actually take the time to look at each item and price accordingly! They put out new clothes everyday and so if I have been in the store once already that week I'll go again because I know they have put out new items. I tell all my friends they are crazy to pay full price these days just go to the Outreach. -Kimberly E. You can call me a regular at the Outreach, I come 3-4 times a week, I can't help it. I find the most wonderful items there, my husband knows if I'm running late home from work I was at the Outreach. You would be foolish to shop anywhere else. These days I can't afford to buy clothes full price and by shopping at the Outreach I can buy clothes and shoes for work and not have to go broke will doing so. I'm grateful for this store it has helped clothe our family for years!! -Susan V.
Reviews taken from Glenn Vellekamp's Website: This December my wife and I will be happily married for 5 years. I now look at my wife with a new pair of eyes. With my old way of thinking, our household would not have stood the storms that came to our marriage early on. If you had not stepped in and helped me to change my mind things would of continued to head into an unhealthy direction. I became much more mature in all these areas and my vision became clearer on what direction I wanted to head. You challenge me in my way of thinking with thought provoking questions and discussions. You helped me change my mind on what I thought life was about. -R.D. Gainesville, FL Thank you for taking the time to meet with us. We truly appreciate your guidance. We are now reading 'Love and Respect ' which has been very helpful in understanding our different needs. -Dr.'s C & S FL Our life coaching chats have given me very clear direction on how to pursue my spiritual life, my marital life and my parental life. I look very forward to continued coaching. -Dr. M.L. Gainesville, FL Thank you for the coaching you gave both of our sons in preparation for their marriages. -Dr.'s E & J FL I can't tell you in words how helpful our talks have been. Dealing with childhood abuse, substance abuse and the bitter aftermath that follows have all been traumatic to me to say the least. You have never told me what to do, but I have known what to do and am much healthier as a result of talking it through. Thank you so much. -D.S FL If your goals are to secure a broader perspective of your situation, candid self awareness (both positive and negative), and a personalized strategy for actually navigating the circumstances in question then I can, from my own experience, recommend Glenn Vellekamp as a Life Coach. -Dr. Brown FL
I just wanted to give the thumbs up for David Cox and his service. David was very helpful and assisted me toward our goal completing work that needed to get done. Thank You!!!
