I HAVE OWNED AND LIVED IN MY HOME, IN THE CASA VIEW AREA. I HAVE SHOPPED IN THE CASA VIEW THRIFT STORE SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THEIR OPENING. I VENTURE TO SAY, I AM THEIR # 1 CUSTOMER. I SPEND ALOT OF MONEY THERE , AS DO MY SISTERS/FRIENDS. OVER THE LAST YEAR I HAVE TOLERATED HISPANIC EMPLOYEES ABUSE. THE STORE IS COMPLETELY EMPLOYED AND RAN BY HISPANICS , SO HISPANIC CUSTOMERS ARE TREATED AND CATERED TO, AND NOW WE CAUCASTIONS ARE TREATED VERY BADLY. YESTERDAY I HAD ENOUGH, WHEN I HAD SPENT @ 2 HOURS AND ALOT OF TIME IN THE STORE SHOPPING AND AT CHECK-OUT , TWO HISPANIC MEN WERE TAKEN BEFORE ME, AFTER BUTTING IN LINE AND A FEMALE EMPLOYEE WAS WAITED ON AND SHE PAID FOR A COUPLE OF ITEMS AND SHE AND TWO OTHER EMPLOYEES HELPED HER "SACK" UP OTHER MERCHANISE, YES THEY WERE "STEALING" MERCHANISE FROM THE STORE!!!!! I AM SO FED UP WITH THIS WEEK AFTER WEEK THAT I WANTED TO REPORT IT , ONLY TO BE TOLD THAT THEY COULD NOT TELL ME THE "OWNERS" OF THE STORES NAME OR PHONE #. I AM NOT DEALING WITH THE STORE MANAGER. SHE IS WORTHLESS TO HELP, AND IS NEVER IN. I HAVE EVERY INTENTION OF PURSUEING THIS , AS THIS MY NEIGHBOR STORE. I WANT TO SPEAK WITH SOMEONE IN ATTORITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CAN SLOW DOWN SOME OF THEIR BUSINESS ALONG WITH OTHER LONG TIME SHOPPERS. I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF NOT BEING ABLE TO SPEAK WITH "THE OWNER"
Best Thrift-Store Mecca - 2004
Gus Thomasson Road and Ferguson Road
The corner of Gus Thomasson and Ferguson roads is the nexus of the world for thrifters. The shopping centers on each corner hold three cool secondhand stores: Value World Thrift, Ferguson Thrift and Casa View Thrift. These aren't nicely organized, well-ventilated Goodwills--you need some grit to dig through shelves of old Christmas decorations and worn-out shoes to find that one treasure. And with the enormous variety of items, that treasure just might be a vintage Christian Dior shower wrap, tags still attached; an authentic Army-drab knapsack; or a black leather biker's jacket. Plus, a wee drive back to Garland Road will land you on another thrift store-rich strip--check out Garland Road Thrift and 2 Friends Resale for more used goodies.
