I was in there yesterday and was just a lil shocked at some of the prices. So when did they start checking prices online. Also this stuff is donated..not antiques... And I don't wanna hear how so many people are changing price tags and whatnot..GET A BETTER tagging system...and also not every person that walks in there is a thief..wanna catch thieves or shoplifters... get a security system...anyway that's just about all I gots to say bout that....this was and is in no way personal..just had noticed a change...good luck

Having them mach internet prices and retail prices takes the fun out of thrift store shopping. If you cant find something really awesome at a bargain price then what is the point? Just go to K-Mart or Wal-Mart! Might at least find a good clearance sale at the department stores.

what makes me mad is women that take 25 or more article of clothing in dressing room and they only have 2 dressing rooms and you wait and wait.

they give money to surrounding places in st louis, where the coporate office too. just because its a thrift store doesnt mean thy have to give their shit away for free. then youd be cmplaining that they were going out of business. if you have a complaint, try calling the coporate office..that is where they handle everything including pricing guidelines

I quit buying from them a long time ago.Like someone else on here said,you can shop the clearance at Kohls and get brand new stuff at half the price and since Goodwill does not help the needy in anyway that I know of around here I do my thrift store shopping at Salvation Army as well as donate stuff to them.

your either an idiot or you work there or both I live in springfield mo and shop all the thrift stores and good will is always higher by far . Same with salvation army . this stuff IS donated . and I challange you to tell me one real place that gets any money from them besides them. I wont buy there and I encourage everyone else to stop donating and buying there.

The Salvation Army in Rolla has helped me several times with paying for my Meds. And I know they have helped a lot of other people.People need to understand it takes a lot of money to keep it running upkeep,cooling and heating $1,000 + a month,3 full time employee's I think,I was told it cost about $7,000 a month to pay for everything.I agree GoodWill should give back to the Rolla area.

please, please, please educate me on how im an idiot?? you asked questions, i gave answers. i didnt argue that their prices are high, did i? i didnt insult you, did i? so why be hateful towards me? grow up. they give money to united way..if you ever look at the change donation box by the register it says it right on there. also if you want lower prices, go to the st robert one..theyre quite a bit lower on pricing.

Shop at the partnership. They have fairly cheap prices on all kinds of stuff. They get some crap too but you can jew them down on prices.
