Renaissance - Fripe-Prix - renaissancequebec.ca over charging Quebec families
#1
Fripe-Prix - Renaissance - Quebec company robbing Quebec families

Second hand Store, Thrifty store, Used Clothing, Furniture, Trainers, boxers, Shoes, Home ware, Records, Tapes, Collectibles and Other Jumble catering to low-income family, poor families and the less fortunate.


Renaissance - Fripe-Prix – the thrift store that often has worn-out, stained, and broken merchandise.

Uncomfortable odor which makes it hard to shop there!!!
A pair of used worn down running shoes 20$
A pair of used jogging pants 7$ (paint stains and ripped)
A pair of snow pants or old jackets 15$ (ruined or ripped)
A 15 year old panasonic microwave 30$ (verdun store)
Used no name watches range from 7$ to 12$ (verdun store)
Used 5 to 7 year old flat screen TV's 80$ to 100$ (verdun store) 


This is just getting crazy!!!....Seems they need to re-evaluate their pricing!!! Or else Quebecors will stop donating to them, and they will go bankrupt!

No where in Canada should any article of clothing in a second hand store be anywhere close to $5, let alone over it.
They get free donations.

You do know that "free" doesn't really exist ?
There are acquisition costs for (almost) everything : wages, transport, rents etc.
Moreover, Renaissance is a nonprofit organization (OSBL in French) which means they have to reinvest all the money they earn into their business. By contrast, Village des Valeurs is a for profit organization and the cash you spend there goes to a US fund.

How do you explain this one to Quebec families ???
“3 clothing racks in the middle of the verdun store” USED tops/shirts starting at $10! Sleepy
Quebec families can buy tops/shirts BRAND NEW at Walmart for $8!

Non Profit organization helping the Montreal community  more like robbing the Montreal community.
