I just visited for the first time yesterday and all the clothes in the store were 1/2 off until 1:00 p.m. I walked away with tons of great stuff. Unlike all the other reviewers I did not find that the place was dirty (but I concentrated on women's clothing), found it to be packed with lots of things. I found the staff to be helpful and gosh there must have been at least four cashiers if not more. I will definitely be going back!
I know that the staff can get busy, but without fail I have tried to go there 3 times and each time it smelled like pee as if they used a mop and NEVER washed the mop. This is what happens when the store is so big it SHOULD have its own janitor. Workers probably take turns cleaning up. A place that big needs its own janitor.
This place is full of more basic items. If you are looking for something specific like a purple t-shirt then this is the place you want to go to. You don't have to dig around so much. You just go to the section and look around. The place could use a mop and a broom, but when you consider the size and often they only have 2 employees around well no wonder. The clothes aren't dirty though. They floor could use some work guys if you're reading this! Other than that the jewlery is forgettable, but they sometimes have some decent furniture in the back. The dresses they get there tend to be very 80's but not in a cool retro way more like the stuff you see in bad movies.
I like Thrift center because they are packed to the gills with great stuff. My issues with them are that they are dirty, and some-times their products are crushed, smashed or broken. Last time i went, there was broken glass on the floor--and there were children playing nearby
