IF YOU ARE SELLING THEM YOUR STUFF, BE
SURE TO GET A RECEIPT.
I took in a lot of items, and they took more than two hours to look at them, finally chose 4 items that cost more than $200 together, and offered around $20. I had to accept, since I didn't have the time nor the space for a garage sale or a craigslist ad.
They were supposed to do an exchange with the stuff I bought from them, so that I can save sales tax.
Instead they printed a bill for my purchase (around $25), and did not bill the stuff they bought from me.
I guess that after I left, they would have made a bill saying that they bought the stuff from me for around $50 or $60, and pocket the extra $30 or $40.
I feel bad that they had to cheat me after all the trouble I went to, to bring the stuff in. I could have felt much better donating the items.
If you are a buyer, bring gloves and a face mask, there is so much dust inside the stores. I don't usually mind but I suspect I caught a cold from one of these stores that spread to the entire family and cost much more in medical bills than I saved.
The shoes are very reasonable at around $4 a pair.
