Value Village: Are the prices too high?
What are your thoughts on Value Village? Do you shop there? Did you used to?
It's a thrift store but the prices on some items are just strangely expensive. Don't they get their items mostly donated to them?
Books - Books with a cover price over I believe $10.00 are priced at 4.99. Pretty much any hardcover book will have a cover price over $10. So 4.99 a book is very high. 3.99 for a DVD?... Walmart has hundreds of Brand New DVDs for 5.00 in their bargain bins. I am not a parent but I hear horror stories over the prices of baby clothes and toys. Another problem is that many of their items are scracthed or damaged and some of the clothes have an unwashable stink.
I have found some good bargains there, but usually shake my head.
