  • No. Marshall's only sells new items.

  • Thrift stores sell mostly use items. Marshalls does not sell any used items. They may sell items that are discontinued in other stores, but they are not used. Big difference.

  • They are not a thrift store, but I don't like how everything is crammed together, so I never shop there. Also, they have some interesting patterns that I also prefer to skip.

  • No I don't, I worked there during my senior year in high school and part of college, it is all new clothing just like ross and tj max. Some of it has minor flaws but otherwise it is overstock merchandise that other outlets needed to get rid of.

    I loved it, the prices were great and the employee discount made it so I had amazing clothes on a students income :)

  • No, more of an outlet store. Marshall's only sells new items that other stores had as overstock or bought too much of.

  • No. WISE women shop at stores like that. Why pay full price?
    SNOBS think stores like that are tacky. (It's only the people in them that are tacky! lol)

  • Perhaps not a thrift store, but certainly "cheap" in quality.
    We prefer to shop at Ross, which is similar to Marshalls, but better quality.
