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!
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
