Store Review: Epic Thrift

7 Jan

Epic Thrift recently opened a store on East Tropicana in Las Vegas, occupying the space left vacant by Savers (which moved to Trop and Eastern.) On a whim, I stopped by to check out the offerings, and was extremely impressed.

Let me begin by saying that Savers has lost favor with me recently, mainly due to the elimination of their weekly sales. You can no longer expect 50% off days, .99 days, or % off a certain color tag. So disappointing! The only sale you can count on: 25% off Thursdays for Super Savers Club Card members. Savers stores are also disheveled and chaotic, and those “Attention Savers Shoppers” announcements are beyond annoying. Let’s not forget that many items appear to have been priced by someone smoking crack.

Enter Epic Thrift! A clean, neat, and relaxing shopping experience. Everything was organized and well taken care of (the polished concrete floor was SPOTLESS.) The employees greeted me warmly and there were no annoying announcements. Prices seemed reasonable and every day is a sale day! Check out December’s calendar (January isn’t posted online, but the glossy in-store flyer indicates identical daily specials.)

Monday: Military Discount 30% off

Tuesday: Casino Employees 30% off

Wednesday: Students ID 30% off, Senior Citizen 50% off

Thursday: $1 day

Friday:2 Tag day (two tag colors are discounted)

Select Saturdays: Manager’s Special

I also found this coupon online, saving you 25% on your total purchase, good until 1/20/13.

Like Savers, Epic Thrift will accept your donations and provide you with a tax receipt, but unlike Savers, Epic Thrift does not provide a coupon when a donation is made. *update: Team Epic contacted me and let me know that it is, in fact, their policy to issue a coupon for donations! So take a trash bag of treasures when you stop in!

Savers DOES have a limited exchange policy, whereas at Epic Thrift, all sales are final.

If you are on East Tropicana, North Las Vegas, or even Mesa, Arizona, check out Epic Thrift! I think you will be as delightfully surprised as I was!

      I actually didn’t make a donation, I only went in and “shopped!” I didn’t see anywhere on your website that a coupon was issued upon donation, which is what I was basing that comment on.

      So happy you stopped by my brand new blog, and hope my costume conscious and frugal friends drop in soon. Your store certainly is EPIC!
