A THRIFT store shopper is warning customers to avoid paying more for Dollar Tree items that end up in second hand shops.
The customer posted a video saying: “You have to love it when Dollar Tree items are more expensive at Goodwill than they are at the Dollar Tree.”
The video posted to Reddit included a series of products that the user reportedly found at Goodwill, including bags, candles, and signs, that were seemingly from Dollar Tree.
The items appeared to be 50 cents to $1.50 pricier than when bought at Dollar Tree, which is known for prices that hover around $1.
Users commented that they too have experienced this when shopping at Goodwill, a store that many flock to for discounted prices on second hand items.
“The other day I came across a 98 cent bag of Halloween cut outs a thrift store pasted a $5 sticker on-top of it,” one commenter claimed.
“Literally they had to see the 98 cents and specifically put their sticker there to cover it. So sneaky.”
Another person user said: “All you gotta look for the classic Chesapeake, VA on the barcode and you know it’s a Dollar Tree treasure.”
A third commenter added: “I like it when I go to Goodwill and I see something for $5.99 but on the other side of it it has a sticker from Value Village for $2.99.”
The find is apparently not a one-time discovery, as other shoppers have voiced
