I saw what looked like just a NAD CD player for $99.00. I thought that is to much. I noticed that it said 3 piece stereo. I couldn't find the other parts. I found a NAD tape player, but no receiver. I asked the workers what happened to the receiver. None of them remembered selling it. They said that they would have noticed that it said 3 pieces and not sold it separately. They had workers checking other parts of the store where they think maybe it could be. They checked the back where they get donations. The one worker said he guess they sold it for some reason. I think that a worker may have taken it since no other workers remember seeing the receiver end up at the checkout. I have read that thrift stores have a high rate of theft sometimes with workers. some former workers and customers said that they whitnessed managers taking nice stuff home free. I read a story the other day about a man accidentally donating a engagememt ring at goodwill. One person wrote a comment saying that he saw two workers fighting over who should get his sports jerseys that he donated. He said that he will no longer donate things to thrift stores after over hearing that. The store said they could make the cd player and tape player 74 bucks instead of the 100 cuz the receiver, but I felt like that was over priced. He argued that it is this price cuz the name. I said that is at least 20 or 30 years old and it might need replacing soon. He said that's why it's sold as is. I said I can buy used cd players on ebay for 30 bucks. I told him that I didn't want it. Something fishy happened to that receiver. He sure knew a lot about it being a nice brand. It makes me wonder if he took it.
