Value Village's regular prices are comparable to that of Valu Thrift, however their daily specials make for much better bargains. On Sunday, all purple tag merchandise was 50% off and all yellow tag items were $0.99! Here are the deals through November:
November 15-21: Purple tags 50% off
November 22: Purple tagged clothing $0.99
November 22-28: Pink tags 50% off
November 29: Pink tagged clothing $0.99
Unlike Valu Thrift, Value Village is non-profit. They partner with several local charities and provide a great way for shoppers to give back to their community.
This isn't about bashing Valu Thrift whatsoever. I've been a huge fan since their arrival to the east side and will continue to shop there for the great selection and convenience. But I feel that in recent months, prices have gotten way too steep and it has taken the bargain out of thrift shopping at their store. I look forward to seeing if/how they respond to the arrival of Value Village on the price tag. Bring on some healthy competition!
If anyone is interested in joining me for Value Village's grand opening this Saturday, November 21 drop me a line! We can peruse the racks of bargains together!
