Not sure whats with all the glowing 5 star reviews? Are they fake? This is probably the worst Goodwill Ive ever been to (and Ive been to lots). They just throw everything in huge bins. There is no sorting of anything, making it nearly impossible to find anything of value. A disorganized mess. I drove a good ways from Grimes to see this place based on the reviews and it wasnt worth it. I wont ever be back. If you have the day to spend sifting through god only knows what I suppose you could find something. But I dont have all weekend to look unfortunately. What I did come across was a bunch of run down junk to be frank.
Something just needs to be done about the people that go there and fill up five shopping carts worth of material to sell online. It seems that every thrift store has become overrun with people attempting to make a profit off of a nonprofit organization. Trying to find every day items becomes a hassle when youre trying to avoid a fistfight with an angry disheveled lady or a drug user attempting to make money online. When I was there employees were announcing rules on how to be a decent human being, when people need to be reminded of what decent means, it translates to (I need to go elsewhere.)
I love stopping in at least one a month just to kill a few hours looking for things that turn out l would have never been to live without. I feel this is one of the most effective ways to price unwanted items that are simply donated to begin with. Everything found in the bins is weighed when done shopping and you pay $0.89 cents a pound. They have many other electronics and household items that are set around the wherehouse and are usually paced around $.99. Namebrand clothes, from adults to infants. Pretty much anything you need/want, can be found at the bins.
I was going to buy something, There was a cashier, standing by a register, talking to a lady about here glasses. She told that lady $ tree was just over there she could go over there and get what she wanted. so i thought there was a line, then the cashier looked at us and she said i dont know why you are standing there. I am not open. In a very irretating voice. There were 2 or 3 other girls there, they couldnt believed what that lady said. I just put my item down and left. That lady was VERY RUDE.
A thrifting experience like no other. Things come out in large, wheeled bins. Nothing is organized, so its definitely a place you need to search for what you want. Not for everyone, but theres some good deals to be had of you can get used to the chaos. It gets pretty crazy during the bin changes. Whatch yo kids, watch yo wife.
It takes a while to get what you want because you are digging through lots of things. So make sure you have the time to shop. I normally spend an average of 3 hours. But I have gotten so much for so little money. Its better than garage saling. Nice employees as well.
Variety of used goods. You never know just what you will find in the big containers. They charge by the pound. I found a nice pair of drapes. All kinds of clothing, adults and children, toys and more. Allow yourself a few hours.
I always make wonderful finds & never ever leave empty handed. The store is always well organized for easy shopping. The store employees are very personable & professional. This is a great place to shop & I do often.
Another one of my favorite secret places fun place to go just a little crowded when they bring out new bins all the vultures descend. They try to keep the kids under unlike another outlet down south I went to.
Great place for the dollar. More odds and ends and clothing than you can imagine. And you meet unique and different people there while shopping. I know people that go there everyday
Large sales floor, simple no question pricing. Staff had difficulties with the scales and would have benefitted from further training or this would have been five stars
You can find antiques there or brand new items with tags still on clothing. Might wanna bring a drink and mini fan it can get hott quick in that store.
Great place to forget your troubles while enjoying fond memories of old toys and finding additions to your wardrobe!
My wife had never been here before..... she went NUTZ! Fun time killer and lots of treasures to be found.
You can find a good bargain.....but be careful,because all the small items quickly add up!
Mom loves this one. They color coordinate the shelved items and organize the books nicely.
Its really fun to go here. You can find a lot of good things for a really low price
Nothing is organized. Most of the clothes are in tubs that you have to dig threw.
Awesomely nice employees very patient and help full. Thank you
It is great it does help lot of people who are in need.
