I would NEVER go into this place if you are under 50 & have any piercings or tattoos. Everyone in there is a bunch of church-going, judgemental hags. I recently went in to look around & was being stared at the whole time. It was actually a cool place and was going to come back but as I walked out the door an old lady with a fanny pack loudly told me to open tiny purse & accused me of stealing in front of EVERYBODY in the store & I was told "people had been warning her to keep an eye on me." I would never steal from anybody & was disgusted she confronted me in front of everybody causing embarrassment. Major profiling going on here. Anybody else have this happen here?

They are ridiculously high priced for a thrift store! They check their stuff against Ebay if they think it's "vintage" or collectible and then price it at Ebay Asking prices. I quit going there for that reason.

The woman with the fanny pack is named Tammy. She is the manager. I used to volunteer there and noticed how rude she was to the customers and the few employees they had working there. I stopped volunteering there because of her. She always said she wanted to thrift store to look like someone walked into a Macy's store. She is delusional and rude. The store is there for a good cause and would make more money if she were not the manager.

I was working the day the person with the piercings came in and the manager never looked through there purse she just asked that person to leave and not come back because they DID STEAL A T SHIRT so if you don't want to come in the store because you got caught stealing that's your problem other wise you need to watch how you talk about people

just so you know, i was that person. i should know what happened. she asked to look in my purse & actually never told me to not come back, so ya know i think i will go back to pay all the FABULOUS people there a visit ;) & how the hell do you "know" i stole a tshirt? you know nothing. i have never stole anything in my life. youre just as judgemental as she was. nobody even saw me take anything, you all just judged the shit out of me and assumed i did. my purse was TINY and even if i wanted to, i doubt i could fit anything larger than my wallet in it & i was wearing a normal tshirt of my boyfriends that he got 3 years ago & leggings so there would be nowhere to even put anything!!! i wish there were cameras to show what really happened because i'd definately sue your ass. Nobody likes your store because of the shitty attitudes everyone has there.(and so you know, ive talked to a lawyer already about it. hope youre ready)

My husband and Iwent in their to look around one day. The fat one you call the manager. Stopped my husband on his way out ask him to emkpty his pockets. He had on a nice pair of levis and a button down shirt. He hadn't stole a thing. She had been nice to him till she came up behind him and seen he had a ponytail. I assure you this manj or myself have never stole a thing. She told him after she seen he didn't have any of her junk on him not to come back. He was curious so he said why. She said they didn't need any long hair types hanging around. Once he told her who he was and what stores we own. She then wanted to say she was sorry come back anytime. Yeah like that will ever happen. What a unprofessional rude b****. We also spoke to our attorney.she won't be in charge to long with lack of customer service attitude.

I went to this "store" recently. Two trips in one. First and LAST. Musty smell hits you right in the face when you walk in. Everything priced way out of line. You can get a better bargain at J.C. Penny or Belk when they are having a sale.

I am a middle aged grandmother that has had a steady job since I was a teenager. I do not appreciate being watched like a hawk. Never would I steal from anybody... but you can be sure that there is nothing in that store that I would want to take if it were free. I do not donate items to that store and I have advised others to take there's elsewhere. You can not charge that kind of price for the kind of merchandise they have. Most of it is Walmart, Kmart or Dollar Store clothing.

Funny how people put down a store and say they= were accused of shoplifting and all that and they wanted to go through your purse! maybe did you think it was because you were stealing! Yes I was there that day you did steal! I am 23 and I have tattoos and I go there all the time and I always get treated with respect! If you are a theft you we be treated like a theft!

Why have these type of stores? It's just stuff they get from people, heck you could sell them yourselves instead of giving it away to them!

The store in question is to help raise money for homeless and needy ppl,but yes prices to high &bit**es work there they also let ppl volunteer there that are on probation and ppl on well fare .
And most businesses now. days look thro the busted paper on a regular bases tp identify thieves b4 they have the chance to steal.
I know tammy I've seen her be a bitch to ppl b4 but never has come at me wrong .

The prices in that THRIFT store are outrageous. I understand they are raising money for the homeless and I support that but putting a $20 price tag on a well worn shirt is ridiculous. I don't see how the store survives with Tammy being rude to people. Every time I drive by there the parking lot is full though.
