There are many different thrift stores out there, and a lot of them offer really well priced merchandise because they get it all from donations. When shopping for clothing, be sure to check the three 'S's: seams, stains, and sweat. These are common pain points for customers shopping for used clothing. Seams can be ripped, creating unsightly holes, stains can be present, and sweat can cause the dreaded underarm yellowing. Luckily a quick look over can prevent a customer from walking away with a damaged purchase.
At a thrift shop, it is completely okay to open the box and make sure the contents are all there. Another great option to consider is negotiating with the shop owner for a discount when buying multiple items, as some shops will offer a percentage off.
