Once again I am going to vent...I thought all the items sold at the salvation army store were donated...I went in the store the other day and was appalled at the ridiculously high price tags...They are even selling items higher than you can get at a regular retail store...I know they have updated the store but shame on you for making it impossible for low income families to even shop there. I for one will never go back. Try the humane society or project love for the truly good deals...

I agree, i go into a discount store expecting lower prices. But, salvation army in Mountain Home is NOT a discount store "No" its a store for Rich people on the verge of becoming middle class..Im not trying to say that Salvation Army doesnt help out, Im only saying why rip off the lower class, to help out the even more unfortunate ones?

I am in agreement with all that has been said about the salvation army...I went in to get some things the other day and had to walk out shaking my head...I couldn't afford anything in there..They had a 100.00 on a old worn out twin bed and I nearly peed myself..Took your advice and went to project love, great bargains and surprises around every corner, too bad about the salvation army I use to enjoy shopping there..

you right apples is a great store also....there is also a very small house across the road from apples thrift that has bargains galore,not sure of the name of the street but you turn beside lewis signs and its on the right side of the road, they even have a dollar room where you pack a brown bag full and it's only a dollar...not sure how to change location i registered but still shows me as out of town...

I was mad bc I went to donate a ton of stuff and didn't realize you had to get there at 4:15 bc after that (even though sign says 4:30 and it was 4:25 when I got there!!) they will NOT take anything! Not even new things with tags and name brand. Nope, too picky!! Chapped my hiney if you know what I mean! I won't be going back there Ever Again!! My granny tried to volunteer there for the holidays but they were full of paid employees and didn't want volunteers. No wonder prices are SO high!!

THe clothes and stuff maybe donated,but the building rent isn't, the employee have to be paid, the electric, the water ,the sewer,and all the other expenses that it takes to run a business are still there and then you give away 86 cents of every dollar to recovery programs, homeless shetlers,social services,food banks, and emegency disaster relief.
That is where all the money goes.

All the other thrift shops have the same kind of overhead but they still manage to keep their prices low. My son was let go from salvation army because he wore a scull tshirt, was told they couldnt condone his attire, but guess what, I bought it in their store. Hypocrits

I'm sure walmart and other stores sell things that wouldn't want their employees to wear at work, So whats your point?
