Prices can be quite ridiculous, almost retail price for used items! Today I had a rather odd interaction. I was interested in a chair but no price was on it. I was told to leave my name at the desk because a lot of people were interested. Am I to start a bidding war? I dont understand why a price wasnt put on it and then first come first serve. That was just really off putting and I left shortly after that. I dont think Id return to this place.
The hours are apparently suggestions. I googled and saw they closed at 6 pm drove there just to find out its closed (mind you it was 4pm). The 2 times I managed to go there in there the selection was ok. The prices though! They were asking for almost close to retail on used stuff! Come on thats just unethical
Well, prices have again become SKY high at this store! Leather arm chair? $580! Beat up mid century dresser with missing veneer? $290. Its a packed mess in there and I found out today that ANYTHING good at all gets put on eBay and not offered in the store!! Hows that as a nice slap in the face of your customers? Donate to a better habitat. Or a better charity. This behavior shouldnt be encouraged.
As someone who has visited restores all over the US this is by far the least worthwhile. To me the restore represents re-using construction materials and goods to make money for habitat for humanity as well as keep stuff out of the landfill. The materials & stuff are priced so that they don't move quickly. I see a lot of the same goods every month I stop in and there is only ever a handful of people there. My experience has been high volume in and high volume out & busy with customers. This store seems to be set up like a Tiffany's rather than a forward thinking way save our planet and make some money for a non-profit. I hope they make connections with local contractors and start moving more volume through the store.
