I've been going to Best Kept Secret since I was 12 years old. My parents had more than enough money to buy me clothes from Aeropostale, American Eagle, or Hollister and at first I was appalled that my mother would even think about shopping for me there. But after one time in the store I was hooked. I found name brand clothes with tags still on for about $5 each. They do have some clothes stained or ripped but it is a second hand store, you can't expect every article of clothing to be perfect. And if they are stained it's usual a tiny ketchup stain that can be taken out with a little bit of elbow grease. The staff there is very well mannered and they are always very nice, unlike the high schoolers or college kids in JcPenney's, Maurices, or Fashion Bug. Best Kept Secret is a terrific store though a little packed. That just means that finding the item your looking for is more fun and you're more than likely to find other bargains in your search.

You just can't get any better than this place for Thrift Store shopping. You seldom ever find anything being sold at this store that has a stain or a rip or a button missing or a zipper that doesn't work - and all for a very reasonable price. I can't tell you how many times I have bought items here that still have the tags on! Looking for labels? I've bought Eddie Bauer, Old Navy and several other name brands here. My only "complaint" would be that the place is so packed with stuff that there's hardly room to manuver through the store - but that's ok too - lots to choose from! :-)

All the money goes to a great cause with these folks too! Why give retailers your money when the Rescue Mission is feeding the hungry, housing the homeless and clothing those without? I would much rather spend my money here!

I've been in there recently and the prices are much better than the Salvation Army store. I was able to find a few good things and they still had price tags on it! I didn't notice any funky smells and my nose is very sensitive! The always have ticket color sales every time I've gone in there.

They should be glad they are a kept secret this place is a disgrace to used stores. They sell smelly gross things. The store stinks and is dirty. The staff is well not so nice. The store is a disgrace and the prices are through the roof. If you want to shop second hand you are looking for a deal not to pay almost what you would pay in any other store. The clothing is stained and dirty. I dont expect it to be clean but I do expect it to not be full of stains and not been cleaned after it came off the other persons body

This place is a joke. It is like the salvation army they get second hand clothes donated to them and they resell them at a price that is out of this world you can go to the store and buy brand new for almost the same price if not less. If you want good clothes then dont bother here wait for the sales and go to them. This place is asking way to much for second hand items that is just unreal.
