The Venice FL Habitat for Humanity store is fantastic. It is deservedly well known for its selection of furniture and building materials at great prices but it also offers household goods, electronics, appliances, and clothing/shoes/jewelry. And there are daily discount specials. The store is well maintained and well managed. I've read the 2 previous reviews and can honestly say I have never seen nor had any similar kind of incident with negativity from the staff. Use my charge card all the time - no problems. Like a previous reviewer, I too once had a donation turned away - but they explained that they knew the item wouldn't sell in its condition and they pay tremendous dump fees because they do take so many "iffy" donations. So what did I do? I put it out on the street the day before garbage collection and someone happily picked it up, put it in their car, and drove away. No donation to a worthy cause, but recycling at its finest. I once saw a good condition Ethan Allen couch sit for months before someone finally bought it for $50 - they need to turn things over faster than that to make any kind of money for their cause, so to me, it's understandable if they sometimes feel they have to turn something away. And 300% markup? No! Please check it out for yourself - it's really a great store!

I shop the store on Ogden Road for used building supplies mostly and usually just wait for the half-price sales, which usually end up being a bargain! As far as I was told, they price many used items at half the store prices when in new condition, thus at 50% off days you pay about 25% of store prices, again, a bargain! As far as the review below about Mr. Chancy Bolo, I have had quite a few occasions dealing with this gentleman, and he is just that, a gentleman! He is professional, polite, and you can talk to him. I've never seen him in anything but a good mood and going out of his way to help customers. As far as someone calling him a "racist", that is pure rubbish. I wrote this review mainly because i was upset seeing Mr. Chancy Bolo be slandered by a previous post. There's one in every crowd!
