Best Thrift Store - 2013
Salvation Army Family Store and Donation Center
What kind of thrift store tries to sell you broken crap for just under retail price? Plenty around here, it seems. But not the Salvation Army Family Store and Donation Center. The midtown location is especially good about pricing objects appropriately, according to their chips, scratches and usability. But beyond the everyday pricing, the Family Store also features major sales nearly every weekend. Visit on a random Saturday and you may find that women's clothing is 50 percent off, unisex T-shirts are $1 each or classic vinyl albums are four for a buck. The pickings aren't skimpy, either — this location has one of the largest vinyl hauls and formalwear departments anywhere. The best part? The store is well organized, and constant cleaning means that pesky "thrift-store smell" is kept to a minimum.
