Review for Second Chance Inc, Baltimore, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Pros:

1. Incredibly wide selection of anything you need for the home. This is our first stop when we have a project or are looking for something unique to freshen up a room. My wife refers to our trips to Second Chance as "treasure hunts".

2. The staff is generally very helpful and attentive. Anytime we've had a question the salesperson couldn't answer they were able to quickly find someone who could.

3. Their mission is one that benefits the environment and people.

4. This may sound strange given some of the other feedback I've read, but "pricing". I don't think some people realize that the pricing is tiered. In other words, the longer the item remains unsold, the lower the price goes. Also, don't be afraid to try to negotiate on pricing. We've found that there is usually some wiggle room.

Cons:

1. The bathrooms are a bit..."rustic".

2. The store is not climate controlled. I was going to give a 4 star review for this reason alone, but if you make sure to dress with a mindset that it's the same temperature in the store as it is outside, you should be fine.

Overall:

We love coming here! We never know what we're going to find, but it's always something great.
