Why do people shop at a thrift store and then at the check out complain about the price being to high when its already cheaper than what they can get it for in a regular store or brand new! I work at a thrift store and you see people come in everyday buying something and at the check out say jeez thats expensive for a shirt or something...our shirts are only $2.85 and in a store they are well over that. Anyone know why people are like this?

I think the simple answer is that people are cheap. I know that sounds crappy but I think it is true. Also people are always looking for a great deal, or should I say a sale and the starting price doesn't matter. If a person only shops at thrift stores then what the other stores sell clothing for doesn't matter. In their way of thinking, the price on the tag is the retail price and they are wanting a discount. People always like sales and are always trying to get them. Part of it just may be human nature also. Like I said, everybody wants a great price and everybody has their own idea about what a great price is.
