The Village Thrift store which has been helping the community by providing low cost clothing has gone greedy and took away their half price tickets!! I talked to the regional who was there today and he said they are under new mgmt. and now their prices are higher and their are no half price colored tickets during the week. I will find another thrift store. If we all boycott it, they will lose business and hopefull change it back.

If Owner from Annapolis is truly the owner of this Thrift Store - wow. I imagine you won't be in business for long as your customer service approach is really bad. I hope you don't speak to customers like you 'type' to customers. With an attitude like that - shame on you. You are biting the hands that feed you - unless everything they are saying is true and you really don't care - you are just in it for the money. Then again, shame on you as establishments like yours are supposed to be there to help the less fortunate.

Haha Sheri,

FYI, This particular store is NOT run by a non-profit, charitable organization. It is run by a for-profit company, so they are in business to make money, not to help the community. Don't let the word "Village" in the name fool you. They are not connected to "Value Village" thrift stores.

I shop at the Unique Thrift Store in Silver Spring, right off of 495. I really like it there, their prices are pretty good. They actually have two thrift stores in one large building, you can have your picking:) I don't think they are non-prifit. Just wanted to let everyone know. They have great fitting rooms and restrooms as well:)

Give me a break, folks. "Owner" is not the owner of the thrift store. Stop giving him/her attention and he/she will go away.

This whole thing stinks of greed, plain and simple. When enough people stop going there, the colored tickets will return.

The colored ticket is a sales strategy to attract costumers. I don't think they're being greedy, they're just running their business. It is a poor decision, though, to try and make profit of the less fortunate. If they can live with themselves doing that... it is very disappointing.
Not many people in this world, now days, actually care about others. Which is why I believe this world we live in is a big ticking bomb.

I still shop there and think the prices have gone up but it is still a better deal than the mall.

Kathy, soo true!!! Uggh, that woman is so disgusting!! Stringy greasy hair & she is always wearing clothes that are WAY too tight.. letting her rolls stick out.. Soooo gross!!! I stopped shopping there YEARS ago.. Plus you can't even walk around without feeling like all their male employees want to rape you.. Add high prices on top of all that.. enough reason for me to NEVER step foot into that store again!

They have definitely raised their prices. I can often pay less for new items at Wal-Mart or JCPenney on the clearance racks! Thrift Stores should be a bargain. The AMVETS thrift stores are much better and there is one in Laurel on Rt 1 near Whiskey Bottom Rd.

Janice- I agree 100% I was there today, and i was very upset at the "sudden" price changes under this new management! This place is a rip off- The prices are comparable to old navy or wal-mart. This is supposed to be a store for low income people...not the case! I wonder who is taking home the extra funds they are making from this price hike! Also- the employees and management are very rude and uncaring to customers!

Then people should STOP giving them donations!

The stores in silver spring are non profit. They are owned by the national children's center. I used to work in their main office.

I think the best part of this place is that unlike Salvation army or goodwill, they let you return things! I save a lot of money that would be wasted at other places. The thing i mind though is that it seems like they divorce the suit jackets and slacks as they put them on the shelf so that pairing them again is difficult
