THRIFT STORES on Sep 10, 2016 @ 08:20 pm

I have worked at one for the last 10 years, and I know what you mean. I feel sometimes you can buy something brand new for almost the same price. I feel sorry for poor people, I do not know how they can afford to buy here. We have vouchers so the poor can have things for free, which is great for them

I've been thinking the same thing lately. It's good that you guys offer that. I go on sale days mostly and only to a perticular thrift store for certain items. Thrifting has become an art. It's not like before where you could go everyday and you have to know what's worth buying.

It really has become more of a treasure hunt - there are a lot of days that I leave with either nothing or very little, but every now and then I still find the deals...

Yes I've noticed this for some time. It's just like everything else; prices keep going up

Yes I've noticed that it's been a while now and the prices keeps going up my husband was looking for some T-Shirts one day to wear for work he just wanted some of these in case if got torn or dirty it would be better than buying new ones we were looking at them and we both said they're cheaper at Giant Tiger and they're brand new

yes prices are going up. In Maple Ridge where I live one thrift store where I volunteered for 6 years opened up a second store. It is a boutique. Way to expensive. I know that these two stores only have 3 paid employees with the rest of the money going to a counseling centre for abused women and children, also pays for a transition house.
To me it seems the higher prices go the store criteria for the things they accept has gone up.
