WoW! I wonder what the line up will be like @ the entrance.
Do I dare show up with an old Blackberry? lol (it still works, but I'm a lot happier with my Samsung phone)

I love their "Psst" note at the bottom of the screen, lol: "PSST. Food, branded merchandise, drugs, weapons, garbage and pics of your privates may be valuable to you, but we can’t accept them. Sorry."

if this charity is value village, then forget about it.
As stated on their website:

WHAT DO YOU DO WITH ALL OF THE ITEMS WHEN YOU’RE DONE?

Anything in good condition will be donated to the Goodwill ReUse Centre in Scarborough.

If I demanded the non-red varieties, will they accommodate my request?

So did anyone go yet?
I showed up for the heck of it.
I got rid of just the right amount of stuff to get a whole box of Skittles! (36 61g packs in a box)

BTW, someone further up in line ahead of me got 8 boxes of skittles for trading in a PS 3 system.
(does that mean I can get 4 boxes if I trade in a PS2? lol)

I'm surprised no one has mentioned that the Skittles pawn shop is back again this year! lol

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

***Note: With Good Will no longer in business, donations are now going to United Way.
(I'd rather see it go to Salvation Army because I like their stores...oh well.)
