I go sometimes, the problem is there prices are too high, and you have to pay taxes. Salvation Army has no sales tax. It makes for an easy decision. Also Value Village do not accept returns for cash value.
Haven't been to VV in awhile. Here they have revamped the store and added on space so the prices have certainly gone up to reflect this fact. I only really shop there if it is half price day. My mom loves to go so I do a lot of ambling through the aisles but am proud to say that I usually don't buy.
Any Value Village shoppers out there in FV land? I was in earlier this month for shorts and summer tops. Came out with 3 pairs of shorts and a couple tops. Mostly looked at prices and the effort required to remake the garments to fit and decided to buy on sale in the shops. got some really good deals doing that. Especially with my Christmas gift cards.
