Review for Second Life Thrift Store, Avondale Est, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This great upscale thrift store has the feel of a consignment store while supporting homeless animals in the Atlanta metro area. Their merchandize is top notch with regular sales and specials. In addition to their support of dedicated animal charities, they hold regular adoption weekends, special services for animals such as spay/neuter deals and other animal-related services. The business is staffed with only two part time employees and volunteers; advertising is mostly through social media, so administrative costs are minimal with a high percentage of their sales going to the animal causes. This is their website with address and hours and how to donate. On the website, check out "Lucky's Blog" to get an idea of the philosophy of the founder/owner.

Review for Goodwill Industries of Central Arizona, Phoenix, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I cannot say enough good things about the way the AZ Goodwill stores are operated. I have never lived in a town where shopping at thrift stores was so much fun. I never miss the weekly bargain days--half price Saturday and Dollar Day but also do regular shopping using my 20% discount coupon obtained when donating items. I cannot go to any room in my house where I don's see some great find; it is like a treasure hunt, never knowing what I will come home with. Keep up the good work.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Shopping their numerous thrift shops. There are eight shops wihin a 10 mile radius and I frequent all of them.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
