Personally I have enjoyed my shopping experience at the RM Thrifty Shoppers. They have an outstanding clothing selection and I am proud to wear their merchandise in my profession work environment. The staff have been very friendly and helpful. I have shopped the stores in Fairmont, the Valley, East Syracuse, and Sweetheart Corners. I have found those stores clean and well maintained.

I believe that the Rescue Mission uses the money earned in their stores to support their various programs, (Ex. Feeding and Housing the vulnerable in our community.) Yes, they have also provided an opportunity for those on Jobs Plus to volunteer there to "maintain" their benefits. T/W finds no problems with that. It keeps those folks busy and hopefully eventually off the welfare rolls.

Anyway, I am sorry that the initial reviewer had a negative experience. As for my family, for every item we bring into our home, we try to discard one. (To help us with the dangers of accumulation). Our family chooses to dontate to the Rescue Mission!

The store is dirty, and disorganized and the clothing more expensive then Goodwill for example. As to this store being any sort of legitimate charity, I have my doubts. My family and I volunteered here during a school break and we didn't really get a great feeling from the place. (They use "conscripted" labor-i.e. welfare recipients and homeless) the nicer donations are "e-bayed", by the few paid employees, and one of the younger "managers" bragged to my teenage son that he makes 100,000 a year from the "e-bay" profits.) Lets put it this way: The nicer donations do not even make it to the floor. (instead, they are locked away in private offices). Also, after using his work there as a class project, my soon was apalled(sp) to find out that after overhead and adminsitrative costs, very little money actually filters down (4%) to the homeless. And bear in mind that the "homeless" and welfare recipients are forced to provide 40 hours of free labor to receive benefits from either the Mission or the County.

I have visited several of the Thrifty Shoppers with much success in finding seasonal clothes and inexpensive books for my family. I also have plenty of money left after purchases, unlike regular department stores.
I enjoy denoted clothes to the Rescue Mission as well, knowing I'm helping a fantastic organization that meets needs I could never.

The goal of the Syracuse Rescue Mission's is to help the homeless and helpless find a new way of life through Jesus Christ. To support their various programs, the Mission has set up a chain of thrift stores all over the greater Syracuse area and surrounding suburbs. Known as the Thrifty Shopper, these stores offer a wide variety of clothes and household goods at affordable prices.

What differentiates the Thrifty Shopper from other similar establishments is the fact that while they accept donations without regard to style or condition, they employ a staff of people who carefully sort out the donations, picking out clothing that is damaged or unwearable, leaving only quality merchandise for sale in the stores. Rather than discard these unacceptable clothes, the Rescue Mission sells them to a recycler to make additional cash.

Each Thrifty Shopper offers special sales, including a Senior Citizen discount day where folks over 55 can take advantage of a 25 percent discount. End of the season sales are also a great time to pick up good clothing at a tiny fraction of their original price.

Help those who can't help themselves by supporting this great endeavor.
