Wednesdays mean half-price deals at Salvation Army stores

Business is booming at Salvation Army Thrift Stores.

Shopper Billie Smith says it used to be quiet at the Salvation Army Thrift Shop in Atlantic City, but now she finds she often has to wait in a line at the checkout counter.

And the stores are especially busy on Wednesdays. That's when almost all the clothes are 50% off their already-low prices.

Just how inexpensive are the clothes?

We found a men's Land's End shirt -- new with tags -- that was priced at $5.99 on sale for $3.

A Woolwich chamois shirt that was $3.99 was on sale for $2.

For the kids: An Aeropostale hoodie that was $2.99 was down to $1.50 and a Baby Gap fleece jacket that was also $2.99 was also Wednesday-priced at $1.50.

In the ladies' department, we found two Liz Claiborne dresses with store tags saying they need new zippers. But at $7.50 each, someone with a little sewing know-how will be getting quite a deal.

The stores also have housewares -- like these still-tagged Mikasa goblets for $2.99 each, a gently used sofa and love seat set for $150, and an entertainment center for $160.

Money generated by sales at the stores benefit the Salvation Army's Adult Rehabilitation and Treatment Centers. For more information about the Salvation Army and the locations of its Thrift Stores, click here.
