If you do go, avoid the parking lot! Some lady backed up right into my car while I was in it! I'm sitting there honking while I watch her put a dent in my car. The thrift store itself has nothing and it stinks. Avoid this place!

Last time I dropped off my donations, I had to wait for 25 minutes to get a receipt. It wasn't really a receipt, rather just a piece of paper saying thanks for my donations. During my 25 minutes wait, I had witnessed one of the female employees who came out of the back door went through the stuff the lady in fron of the lines had already dropped off (and left) and was telling the other female employee how she was keeping this and that, whatever she liked. Everybody in line was watching and heard what she was saying but she did not care and no one said anything. Next thing, she came out with an empty box and started to pick out whatever she wanted to take home from the few bags the lady had dropped off. I was disgusted and could not believe that employee had the audacity to steal people's donations in front of doners eyes!!!! I hope whoever in charge of the salvation army will read this and take appropriate action to prevent this kind of stuff from happening in the future.

This thrift store is kind of icky. It's the reason why people avoid thrift stores. It smells bad and it's so jam-packed with stuff that it's very difficult to have the patience to find anything. I can barely fit between the racks of clothing, and I am not a large person. It's also unpleasantly crowded on Saturday afternoons, and you have to walk by a throng of men seeking work in order to enter the store, which I find a bit intimidating. The store is also located on a kind of abandoned looking street that is not well kept up.

On the plus side, they have quite a large selection of clothing, and of furniture, especially living room furniture.

Next door to the main thrift shop there is a so-called upscale thrift shop that sells designer brand items for prices I don't really want to pay. The store is smaller, cleaner, and better organized. You are doing a good deed by shopping at Salvation Army, since you get to give money to charity and get something in exchange, so in that sense, the prices aren't so bad.
