    I agree! I used to work in a high-end Oxfam and it happened all the time. Stupid stupid stupid!

    BTW, I usually get discout at charity shops WITHOUT ASKING because I genuinely am a loyal customer.

    Because they want to be sure they go to the lowest plain of Hell when they die…

    They probably cant afford it or the price of what their buying is probably too much for what they are acctually buying?

    I help i the british heart foundation and some of the prices are high but times change I think some people ask for discount as they think they are doing you a favour by shoping there? who knows but it is cheeky

    Hey some charity shops charge sensible prices – others are just a rip off. Trying to sell china at cheap antique prices when they know it is so badly chipped it is worthless.

    Like people – some charity shops are good, others are bad, and some are downright dishonest!!!

    Shops such as Oxfam are now extremely GREEDY. you only get to see a genuine ‘charity’ price in local charity shops (supporting local hospitals etc). Yes, Oxfam is a massive business and what they have forgotten over the years is that not only is there people in need in the africas etc, for which they do good work, but also maybe sometimes people visiting charity shops are in because they are truly suffering hardship in the country that they are in. If Oxfam had the balls to become globally charitable then they would have a pricing structure which helps the buyer in need as well as the recipient in africa etc.
    Oxfam is greedy and I avoid there shops now in preferance to the local ones that I support to my fullest.
    I would even charge business rates to oxfam as the prices are now so commercial – only giving a rate rebate to the charity shops that can prove that they help the community that they are in as well as th ercharity itself.

    Some thrift stores are over priced. I’ve seen used pint glasss marked $1.80 each. They only cost $1 new.

    That’s one reason.

    Otherwise people are just broke or cheap
