Review for Matthews Help Center, Matthews, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Matthews Help Center is a great organization helping 100's of people every year. In todays economy, its also a fantastic place to shop. You can get Brand name clothing for a fraction of the cost of regular retail stores and the selection and quality is remarkable. When I am tired of my clothing then I donate it back to them. Where else can you get a shirt from Lands End or Talbots for $3. and when they have a sale Ive paid as little as $1. for a shirt. Its fun to shop for other things too. They always have alot of books both hardback and paperback, housewares, shoes.purses, and seasonal decorations. When you shop there not only are you getting a great deal but you are also helping the community as well.
Back Porch Treasures, as it is appropriately named, is a large,clean, well lite facility as well as beautifully decorated and laid out so it makes sense. Matthews Help Center is always my first stop to shop when I am looking to add to my wardrobe, looking for something special, or in need of seasonal decorations.

I have been going to Matthews Help Center for 15 yrs. I absolutely love this little hidden away thrift shop. There are so many great buys and in this days economy its nice to find quality clothing,books and household items at such reasonable prices. Ive gotten my 2 daughters to shop here as well. You cant beat the selection or the price when it comes to childrens clothing especially since they out grow clothes so fast. When they out grow these clothes we just re-donate them back. The volunteers do a bang up job and work very hard to keep up with the changing seasons. Everyone there is so nice and helpful. I go there at least once a week and when people comment on how cute my clothes are I just say.. Matthews Help Center (Back Porch Treasures).
