    yes i agree some of there prices are outrageous as well as goodwills i mean seriously the stuff is donated but the pricing is a lil steep i saw a used dirty old playpen in there for 50.00 a jumperoo for 50.00 lets thing about it the stuff is used not new and dont even get me started on the furniture used heavily priced samething with habitat 4 humanity but that doesnt mean any1 can steal from them i think allof our retail stores that help the community should price items cheaper and more effective depening on merchandise and age of it. and for the record i have found a few good deals at other salvation armys like in rockymount they have sales everyday and farmville updates there stuff every week.

    The Salvation Army is exempt under Internal Revenue Code from filing Form 990 as a "church or convention or association of churches." As a result, we lack sufficient data to evaluate their financial health. We know many donors are interested in this organization and have asked the Salvation Army to submit their financial data to us for review, and they have elected to decline, as they are allowed under federal law.

    Are some of you really suggesting that the prices are too high? Really? Do you expect them to just give their products away? They use the money earned from the sale of those products to help the community. For shame that you complain about actually having to pay five dollars for something. The other poster is completely right--people expect something for nothing. Here's an idea--if you can't afford five dollars for a pair of pants, maybe you shouldn't have had kids that you can't afford to clothe and feed.

    The Salvation Army is one of very few charitable organizations where it is not a scam and someone is getting rich. If you cannot afford to support them at least respect them. They may be there to help you some day.

    Don't complain about their prices because nobody is making you shop there. Go to FAMILY DOLLAR and get tou a $20.00 pair of cheap new ones then. The SALVATION ARMY is reinvesting the money to help people in need.I don't think $5.00 is high for a pair of used jeans that may have cost the original owner $50.00. Thats wht is wrong with people now they expect something for nothing. If we were to have a hurricane hit you would be the first ones in line to eat the HOT MEAL they serve.
