PTA Thrift Shops Complaint - I Thought Thrift Shops Were Supposed To Be Affordable
PITTSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA -- I thought thrift shops were supposed to be affordable? Thrift shop? (Or) are they really pawn shops? I have noticed in the past several months that thrift shops all around are jacking up their prices....Why are they being allowed to do this on item's that were donated?
New item's (or) used..... A thrift shop is suppost to be selling the item's cheap for people to afford.....Not sky high retail store prices!
If that's the case you might as well buy the item new (at least if anything is broken you can return it at the retail store)... Thrift shops I have been visiting has the "sold as is".
What really made me write this article is I saw a brand new Christmas item (never opened) in one thrift shop priced at $15.00....While in the meantime a few blocks down that same exact item can be purchased for $19.99.
To me....If an item is sold for more then half the face value...It's not considered thrift store price!
