Compared to other thrift stores in the Birmingham area they are great. Hands down the best prices and service you can get.
This is not a clean store at all. Very junky and unorganized. Price is not always listed on the item. A sharpie marker is used to price the items if it is priced but they will not always charge the amount. They may decide to charge a higher price then claim that merchandise comes to them with a price on it. $1 for a small tea cup is very pricey when .25 is marked on the bottom of the cup with a sharpie marker. It seems to me that when 45 tea cups would be purchased they could give some kind of deal knowing that I donate so much merchandise to them. I should say donated so much merchandise. No additional merchandise will be donated to them.
Very helpful staff, clean store, great selection at incredible prices. Better organized than most of the other thrift stores I've been to.
The pets wait for their fur ever families to find them in clean, comfortable kennels that resemble a showroom. It is never dirty, it smells clean, and the volunteers (& employees?) are clearly dedicated to being sure the pets are compatible with their potential adoptive family (while not being snarky and elitist like certain groups are).
clean store , great prices

They are amazing people. To take care of these animals day in and day out you have to have love for them, and these people do. They go to great lengths to make sure that every animal there has a fair chance at adoption. If you have to give an animal up for adoption then you should definitely contact the GBHS and give your animal a chance. They give the animal plenty of time to find a home. It's better than Euthanization.
First Light really helped my mom in the time of need. From what it seems, she is happy there, the staff is courteous, and confidentiality is a priority. I would reccommend this shelter to anyone who is serious about making a positive change in thier lives.
