First, this thrift rak has the dubious idea that not including items under 99c in its sales somehow makes it more money. It seems to be managed by one of those folks that would rather hold onto the stuff than sell it for slightly less than what a competitor might sell it for. So, it's getting fuller and fuller, yet the items aren't any more quality than cheaper thrift stores. The cashiers are sometimes, uh, too young to know how to do their jobs properly. The lady (Sylvia?) is nice enough when she comes out.

If you're looking for a good bargain, this is a place to go but be prepared to spend a lot of time here. The lighting is not good and the store feels very disorganized, especially in the toy and housewares department. Very, very overpriced on a lot of items, especially furnitures. Does run frequent specials and has a large selection of interesting junk. IN general, I have found the staff to be unhelpful, inattentive, and completely disinterested in the store, their jobs, or the customers; they rarely offer assistance or are able to help you find a particular item. The cash register is frequently left unattended, the staff is difficult to find, and there is a lot of time spent waiting to be rung up while the cashier chats with whatever friend has dropped by. Staff is NOT a selling point for this place.

PROS: lots of parking, good location
CONS: apathetic staff, prices.

After Thrift Rak moved from the building by Dairy Queen, it went downhill. The selection is much more limited in the small space it occupies now. The building is dark and drab. Every once in awhile they hold a sale like 50% off all kid's clothing but that's the only time it's worthwhile. The carts are dirty and the aisles are small so it's hard to maneuver them anyway. The positive I can add about this place is that a couple of the clerks are very polite.
