I have been meaning to do this for some time. I totally agree with the above review. The taxes are ridiculous. They just charge anything they want for taxes. Almost nothing is priced, you have to carry everything up to the front of the store to get a price, and then if you cannot afford it, it can be embarrassing. I have also noticed that the women price things differently according to the type of person or who they perceive to be someone with more money, which I think is terribly unfair ?nobody knows who is having a hard time or not, just because they might have better clothes or car at that time, it??s ridiculous. There are three women that work in the front, 2 hateful older women that have been there forever and a younger woman who has been fairly nice from time to time but seems to be following in the others footsteps. I have seen the same thing from both of the older women; they talk down to and yell at the workers. If I were a volunteer I would just leave if someone talked to me like that. I have been to this store many times over the years and it has never changed even though I know of people complaining about these same problems. Several people I have talked to have stopped going there for these reasons. Whoever is over this ministry should do an overhaul and change the workers and the way things are priced. None of the other thrift stores are run like this. At least price the items so you will know what you can afford to buy without embarrassment or judgment by the hateful workers at the checkout desk, and get a tax chart if they are going to charge people tax even though they are nonprofit.

First off...Haven of Mercy is a NON-PROFIT organization but the thrift store charges taxes. Not only do they charge taxes, they think they can charge however much "taxes" they want. Hopefully, I'm not the only one who sees something wrong with this. Second, their desk-workers have the worst attitude. The woman who works the counter looks and acts as though she hates the world and talks to her co-workers harshly while customers are within earshot. I used to enjoy going to "the haven" to buy things but now I'd prefer The Good Samaritan.

Cons: read details

Haven Of Mercy Thrift Outlet has a wide selection of interesting items that is always changing. I have found it is a good place to go for halloween costumes or other clothing. the prices are rock bottom the store is generaly clean. you may not find what you want but you may find things you didn't even know you wanted till you saw them.
