I have given alot of thought to this before I decided to say something. For quit some time now I have heard many people complain about the store and how much it has gone done hill in the product that they put out plus the employees that they choose to hire. I really belief that they forgot that the customer is like a priority because if you do not take care of your customer you will not have a store. Customers do not like to stand around and wait for someone to help them in areas they can't go to shop or to have to stand in a line a mile long with no help that definatly is not good customer service. It is time for the higher ups to start listening to their customers and take some of their advice because they are the ones in there spending their money. If changes to start to come n a positive way THE SALVATION ARMY STORE WILL FAIL.

Target $4
KMart $3.48
Walmart $5

Why pay the same price or more for used and these prices are for little boys size 3T new.
Crummy stuff

Your right! it's expensive! I saw a shirt there once years ago that was old and faded and had a cigarette burn in it and it was $5.20. At WalMart they were $4.00. This was for Mens size.

My mom used to work at Salvation Army Thrift Store when we lived up in Michigan. We didn't have a lot of money. Barely enough to put food on the table. Just because a few of the clothes are a little messed up doesnt mean they arent good. Salvation Army was the only place I was allowed to get clothes. I've had many compliments on my clothes asking me where I got them. It's priceless the look on their face when I say Salvation Army. You just have to weed out the good clothes. I love my patched jacket. I love my sweat pants and shorts I've got there. Salvation Army saved my life when it came to clothes. It gave me the chance to have new clothes each school year. It gave me the chance to be able to buy a homecoming dress my freshman year or guess who wouldn't have been able to go...even if I was freshman homecoming attendant.

Make fun of me, the underpriveledged, really, you have no idea what we go through.

I have my own job now, and am able to use my own money for new clothes from other places, but whenever I'm in Midland, you better believe, I'm takin my money on a shopping spree at Salvation Army.

where did you get the idea that you were being made fun of? the posts were about the items being sold for too much money. if they are helping underpriveledged they should have better cleaner cheaper stuff.
