I am extremely disappointed and sad that both Value City stores in my area are closing. An employee told me in the Roseville store this week that that's been a profitable location--then why close it? I love and appreciate the highest quality of women's clothing/shoes/accessories and home goods at the lowest prices of any store in MI! They gave the average-wage person an opportunity to wear and have top-of-the-line labels at prices they can afford (and I don't shop for the "labels" in any other store). I don't know how they could discount the original prices so generously, which makes you wonder why the "big box" department stores have the identical item for such a ridiculously high price! Value City was always the first place I went to--if they didn't have it, then I'd have to go someplace else, knowing I couldn't do better. They served us MI residents well in these years of economic hardship, and even when unemployment hit us, I could still afford to shop Value City. Thanks. It was wonderful while it lasted!

Why not Google Value City and find out for yourself??? The answer won't be hard to find.

I really enjoyed shopping at Value City and would like
to see them open back up again. I never did see a
Value City Store that wasn't packed with buyers. There
was never one close to my area but I would drive as far
as 60 miles away to get to one. Please bring them back.
They have a closed Mervyn's Store across from the Pontiac Mall, a ideal place to open one up or at the
Bloomfield Square Mall.

And I have lamented the fact they've been gone from
us in Florissant, Mo. for several years now. I'm
not the only one either. A lot of us here in the
St. Louis area that can't afford top dollar items
loved Value City and still keep hoping it will come
back to us!.....and you, too. Good luck to both of us.(My boss just told me the other day that
she, too, always loved shopping there, and I just found that out.)

More pricy it made better.The foam cushion is more durable last longer . Also wood frameing is made with a better . Not from plastic that cracks faster. Pay for long run or is this a pemporary relationship.. 6837

I am so sorry to hear about Value City Dept. stores closing. I worked there after the Crowley's Dept. stores were bought out. Value City bought out Crowley's. I worked at the Crowley Dist. Center on Fort Street, in the old Grey Hound Bus Station. My husband and I went to work in the Taylor Value City Dept. store and we got promotions and transfurd to the Warren store.
I remember how hard it was for the employees at Crowley's. My boss had been there 26 years and she was to retire soon. She didn't even get her retirement that I know of.
I am not from Michigan. I am from Kentucky. I lived there for about 9 or 10. years. I heart goes out to the people being laid off. God Bless You All.
