What has happened there? The workers was always rude but I could look over it because it was a good place to find good deals. The last few times I went there their was as many clothes on the floor as Hung up. The prices on some stuff was way too high. I left there and went to the 1 in Williamsburg and have been goin there ever since. It was clean and neat and the prices are cheaper there. Not to mention they are nice. I heard corbin had a new manager and thetall darkhead one is gone.

well rightt hate to tell u but your wrong!!! My husband works at firestone and I am a stay at home mother of 2 kids. One of the reasons I shop at the goodwill. Even though my husband has a good job we still have to watch our spending and cut corners where possible. Sorry if I hit a nerve. I take it that you work there? Like I said before, the workers are not very friendly.

You have no idea if she is an ex-employee. She is actually correct. The employees are rude and the prices are too high. By the way, I've never worked there either.

I agree. I went there looking for some stolen stuff. I knew it was there because a friend of mine bought some of it when she found it on the racks there and returned it to me. So I went and asked if they had seen some certain items. They said they couldn't tell me what had been turned in. I told them I didn't want any names of who'd turned it in, I just wanted the items. I even agreed to buy them and they refused. So in my opinion, they are thieves for receiving stolen property!

1. Unless you had proof that it was stolen there's nothing they could do. They probably couldn't sell the stuff back because it may have already been sold, or it was still being sorted.
2. Goodwill uses all of the money they use to help people find jobs and go to college (even get their GED) nothing goes on the floors unless it's in good condition. Everything with stains, holes, nicks, etc. goes to those less fortunate locally and overseas.
3. Goodwill may not pay them for items that were dropped off but it is considered a donation when you drop something off and you can write it off in your taxes. They even give you the form to fill out when you take it too the door.
You can't diss all goodwills just because 1 store didn't give 5 stars.

Also, just because it was donated at the corbin store doesn't mean it ends up there. They ship donated items to other goodwill stores.

But the employees have the right to lower or raise the price depending on the circumstances

For one, clothing wouldn't be laying on the floor if people did not drop it and leave it laying there...the employees put it on the racks, not the floor. Two, only the managers are allowed to price items...not the employees. Three, a lot of the good stuff gets stolen throughout the night when people drop it off after hours. Here's a little tip- if you want your stuff to be donated to goodwill, drop it off during store hours. Otherwise, people go through it (in front of a camera) and it gets stolen, or scattered throughout the parking lot, only to be ruined and thrown away. The camera catches it all, so if people are stupid enough to commit a crime in front of a few cameras, then they deserve to go to jail. The employees that work there have to deal with a lot of negativity from the public, so if they have been rude to you, it's probably b/c they are having a bad day...the shoppers think that they are the ones who price things and decide what and when things are coming out onto the floor...they are ridiculed daily for things outside of their control...i hope you have a better experience next time :)

I've donated very expensive barely used things such as clothes, rugs etc. and I'm talking very good stuff. Never again will I donate to goodwill because I've yet to see any of my stuff put out in the store and I've been told the employees take what they want and have first choice. Not fair.

Not sure if this is true or not but I've been told they ship local donations to other stores and non local ships to here.
