I love this place! There is always something interesting to find and take home, and seldom do I leave without buying something. Some items could indeed need a washing, but I always wash everything I but at a resale shop anyway, so this doesn't bother me. Previous comments about rude employees leave me baffled. I have been shopping at this store since it opened its doors, and I have continued to shop here as they have expanded and relocated. I have never encountered a rude employee. Yes, they do have an employee that goes around announcing closing time is coming up, but that is because they do no have a sound system (that I know of). I did not find this rude. What would be rude to me is shoppers that want to stay past closing time. I have also had some of my items rejected, only to find similar items in the store later on. This can be a negative for me, but I get over it. I think I buy more than I take in to sell anyway. I guess it depends on the employee who takes the stuff. I love this store and recommend it to everyone I know. Since Christmas of this year their stock has been way down. This is unusual and I am not sure why this is so. All in all, they are not perfect, but I love this store and recommend it to everyone I know.

First off, let me say that the people who work at shop around the corner are very, very rude , and seem to only care about the money they make. We were at shop around the corner Yesterday night and we were looking for knobs for a shelf my dad made and so we found knobs in the toys area. So , that tells you that they are very unorganized. A lot of the items were broke, missing something, dirty, used, ripped, smelled really bad and were very trashy. And when they are 15 minutes away from closing time, they scream "we are closing in 15 minutes" and then when they are asking each other if they should start turning off lights while my parents and my brothers and I were still looking for stuff. Then we were walking up to the front so we could pay for the few items we were getting and the workers were very rude , and disrespectful . my mom said she didn't want a few item that she thought she wanted, and then the OWNER gave my mom a very rude look and then started talking about my mom. And about the hole screaming that they are closing in 5 minutes and rushing their customers like they do m is not okay. It might be okay to do it in ferguson but not in Washington nor any other place . Very disappointed and think they should be inspected . Never going there again. EVER!

This store was once a great place to find a bargain. However, with the size of the store increasing it has become cluttered, difficult to navigate and the merchandise is usually broken, missing parts and dirty. As a consigner here I have recently been greeted at the drop off location with rude and unprofessional staff. I have actually been told to take my stuff somewhere else because my things were "dated". They seem to want to be on the same level of an 'upscale' consignment shop but the look of the store and unprofessional and inexperienced staff do not reflect this. They also do not provide a itemized accounting of what they sell for their consigners. I would not recommend this store as there are other thrift stores in town.

This store is poorly organized, has lots of missing prices, very hard to navigate the crowded isles with stuff on the floor. A store employee could be heard talking about me while watching me on camera in the "Big Boys/ Toys room" The woman with broken english/ebonics behind the curtain could easily be heard talking about me while I was browsing the obsolete electronics and re-retailed Goodwill items. At first I thought they were talking about someone else and didn't pay much attention. That was until I left the department then returned to procure an item that I had been thinking over while browsing other areas of the "junk store". I heard her say, "hes back to get it." The item was a phono pre-amp made by radioshack, which had no guarantee, not returnable, and it was priced at $1.99. I picked it up and went straight for the check out. $2 was not much to worry about if it worked or not I could always fix it or scrap its parts.

As a former sales/customer service rep at a large electronics retailer and manager of a computer/electronics repair shop, I find their lack of loss prevention tact to be appalling. They should probably have a room with walls and a door to surveil prospected shoplifters, instead of a tattered curtain and a employees only sign.
I was never approached by an employee asking me if I needed help nor was I acting suspicious. Unless looking at the floor while walking to make sure I didn't trip over random things blocking the isles is suspicious.

My wife and I love to shop at this store. Their selection is enormous and growing. We always find good deals and have used items there to furnish our apartments and home.

We always find the employees to be curteous,knowledgeable, and helpful.

Highly recommended!

this place isn't too bad to find crazy odd pieces for a decent price, but I do have complaint. I've taken some things in there to try and sell and some pieces were rejected. That's fine, but I have good taste and could not believe some of my little things weren't allowed. HOWEVER when you walk through the store there are some pieces of JUNK in there. And I mean absolute trash! I guess it depends on who you have checking in your sellable items. Also I sometimes wonder if the staff don't put things out and purchase it for themselves for pennies on the dollar. I will still go to shop for things but won't sell anything AGAIN!

This used to be a really good place to shop, but now the stuff is of poor value and the workers are very rude. I prefer Goodwill over this place any day.

This used to be a really cool shop before they moved and lost an owner. Now it is just another junk store. Messy and unorganized and overpriced. I wouldn't recommend it. There are other places in Washington where I go that are clean, friendly and honest.
They don't treat their consignors very well either. I had items there and when I went to get my money I was told that they weren't writing checks for a month. What's up with that? My stuff..My money!
