Anyone shop Goodwill Outlet stores?
« on: October 29, 2013, 07:23:14 PM »
I've been interested in going but frankly a bit intimidated from the reviews I've heard.  Guess its worse than a bridal gown event.  People are crazy.

The sell things like 75% less than stores and by the pound.   All just dumped in bins, dig thru.  Unwashed. Unsorted.

Anyone try?  Worth the craziness?

There can be some really good deals, but it can get pretty wild.  At the one I frequent, they will take out an entire row of these really big carts...probably 10' long and 4' wide, then they parade out a bunch of freshly filled carts and put them in place.  Everybody gathers around while they lock the wheels and get them in place, and when the lady says "Okay", everybody dives's a free for all! 

Kind of fun, and I have done really well there in the past.  Clothing by the pound, and I have found some expensive clothes.....True Religion jeans, Tommy Bahama shirts, etc.  Lots of cheap appliances, winter boots, high end tennis shoes, and lots of misc. items.  I will usually hang out from around 8am until about noon, and walk out with $300-400 worth of items. 

They also have a section with some decent electronics and furniture from time to time, but you have to be there right when they open, that stuff gets scooped up right away.  You should try it at least once......if you haven't already since you posted this a month ago........
