Honestly, I travelled 2,400 miles from the West coast to experience the Huntsville, Alabama Thrift Mart first hand. I must say, it does not disappoint! I was delighted to see that the manager does indeed snort a variety of opiates, and after doing so becomes incredibly attentive for 3-5 minutes, right up until the shakes set in. Anyone who knows me knows I love two things. Jesus, and finding a deal, and I was able to score a ziplock bag containing various molds and 7 pounds of "second hand bologna" for only $4.99! How many birds can one even hit with a single stone!?Also, Thrift Mart is for LOVERS! I met my first wife while waiting in the line for the bathroom, which is enchanting, even if it is only a rolling bucket with a secondary function of mop holder. We conceived our first abortion right there in aisle 8, behind the hornets nest. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would. Highly recommend!

This is NOT a true thrift store! The prices are ridiculously high. Also, there is no dressing room to try on the over-priced clothes. They allow you seven days to return clothing, but who wants to go home and try on clothes and then go back to the store to return an item all the time?
Awful, unethical, for-profit store in a shady section of town. Horrible management and practices. There are plenty of thrift stores in town that use the money they make to better the lives of others. This apparently makes a big difference in how a thrift store is run because Thrift Mart is overpriced and they ring up items, don't bag them, and then resell them to another customer. Sad, but true. Skip this one.
We went to the pet adoption event and fell in love with a dog. We paid the fee and signed the contract. The director Karen didn't want to let him go to us so she said she needed to do a home inspection. We agreed and she didn't show. 2 days later she called saying someone else had already adopted him. What a joke. They do this all the time. They discriminate to who they want. They told us they had another dog for us to go pick it up. We drove there and they didn't let us take the dog. My daughters were upset and the lady told me I needed to teach them disappointment. Never again!
I adopted a dog from this organization years ago. I am being forced to move to a place that doesn't allow dogs. I went and explained myself, and they weren't happy that my dog and I had to be separated, and they didn't have a spot open in a foster home right then. They told me I could help get him adopted. I brought him to Petsmart two weekends in a row, and on the second weekend an awesome family with kids adopted my sweet Buddy. All these people are volunteers, trying to make the best of the situation. I am glad they are here, doing what they are doing. I am going to try to start helping them by volunteering. They saved Buddy from the shelter and maybe death. I bet he is happier than he ever was with me. If you need to take a pet back to them, you will have to be involved - this organization isn't like the city pound where you can just dump them an leave. You should know that going in.
The checkout line in this place reminds me of roller coaster lines at six flags. The cashiers move with little regard to the length of line. I have abandonded the checkout line often leaving a cart full of stuff. They rarely answer the phone but instead pick it up and hang it up. I now avoid this place like the plague.
This place is a joke!! They told us that we could return the pet to them if we did not want her. Well i grew allergic and needed to send her back. They told us they were too full and then told us to bring her to petsmart on their adoption days. That is not what is in the contract. Not once did it say i had to waste my gas going to petsmart to try to find this dog a new adoption. They have broken their end of the contract as far as i am concerned. I would not recommended getting an animal from this place!!! Very rude and unprofessional unless you are getting a pet from them then they are happy to take your money and run! Thanks for nothing a new leash on life!
Staff needs to be more educated on the sales! Called on Saturday 9/5/15 to see if any specials going on and they told me 50% off everything. Great! Drive there, shop for 2.5 hours being selective on a budget only to be told upon checkout that the sale will actually be on Monday 9/7/15 and would not honor the 50% off even though I was told wrong. Irritating and waste of time and too bad they had to put everything back!!
After finding the right Puppy for my 9 year old son, we did all our paper work and paid the fees to get our puppy. We were told they had to have a vet check first and microchip her before we get to take her home. When she was ready, we were asked if we really wanted her and were told that someone else wanted her if not. We told the lady we really wanted her for my son. the next day the lady that was taking care of her called and said she had to come do a home inspection. We told her that would be fine. When the lady, showed up at the house, she looked around very critically at everything in the house. In the end, she did not leave the dog. The reasons were that our furniture was too expensive and our house was too new and the puppy was going to chew it all up, and the fence was not good enough to keep her inside the yard. I really do not understand some people and how they discriminate against people in so many creative ways. I guess if my furniture and house are too good for your dogs, then I do not need one of those animals that you take care of. Plus, I believe that maybe you wanted to give the puppy to someone else that you knew or keep it for yourself. Signed, The family without Weezer!
