I have become more and more disheartened with the pricing that the local Value Village is using it was brought up on their Facebook Page recently as well. One comment stated that the Kingston store is one of the “flagships” which has higher sales goals to meet in comparison to other places. Whether that is true or just a guess, it would make sense as Ottawa and Belleville are always cheaper.
I must say this month’s Challenge was far more successful than the last, again, I contribute it to my lack of spare time and energy levels. In a financial respect, that’s not a bad thing! Income wise I did very well! What a lot of consignors don’t realize is that if you consign enough clothing, the small increments add up. Having 100’s of dollars on your account can be achieved you just need a nice product and willing to take whatever amount you get for it.
