This is the best thrift store by far - it is the largest. It is clean, has clean bathrooms, changing rooms, drinking fountains, plenty of parking, safe location, etc. Tons of high quality merchandise. Mostly great prices, with a few things marked higher than normal by the staff (though not nearly as overdone as other goodwills like the south asheville one). If you're up for some real treasure hunting, also visit the Clearance Center, around the back of this store. It's tons of bins to dig through - purchases are $1.10/lb.
This is the best thrift store in asheville if you're looking for used furniture. its so clean and organized and they have the friendliest people working there. the manager is a jem! she helped me when no one else would. it use to be in westgate shopping center but its across the bridge now beside fedex and now called western carolina rescue ministries super thrift store.
This is a very good organization for those whom require a guardian. My personal experience with Hope for The Future has been an ouutstanding experience. The Guardians that I have worked with have been very helpful, caring, supportive, and understanding. I have found, that if you do what you have to do the easier it is to get where you want to be in life.
