Writing a poor review about a charity that helps millions of people every year is like making fun of the handicapped. Just bad taste.
The D.I. has a specific function. It is a sheltered workshop. If you don't know what that is then you need to do some homework. The D.I. is privately fund and gets no $$ from the government. Contrary to other posts here nothing is wasted. Items not sold are recycle in the best possible way.

This really applies to all DI Stores in Utah.
There is a great deal of waste allowed in these stores. It is their practice is to throw out any item not sold in a month - rather than re-pricing after a certain period. Assuming that a donated item is even considered for sale in a store: for example, bikes with nothing more wrong with them then they have flat tires have been seen tossed in a dumpster shortly after they were donated.
A store manager was overheard telling a customer that the pricing of items is up to the individual store management - supposedly in accordance with the economy of the neighborhood a store serves.
Identical items can be found in two different stores with different prices, sometimes great differences.
This arm of the LDS Church promotes itself as a means to help those needing employment training - with signs showing workmen and others trained and ready for the workplace, but if the people seen working in their stores are indicative of their efforts - would you ever hire them?

i have been shopping at this deseret industries religously for years. it has had its ups and downs as to the variety of desirable items. it used to be fun to stumble upon a treasure but those are far and in between moments because they are spotted and gone before they even get to the floor. i still like to look around.

i'm a big thrift store shopper and i frequent 3 of the them at least once to twice a week and many others on occasion. this one is one of my favorites. they always seem to have something i'm looking for and their prices are consistent and reasonble. the only negative thing i would say about the store is some of the better stuff being saved for certain people that are known.

The person who said you have no way of knowing that electronics work is completely wrong. They have outlets so you can plug them in and see if they work. Also they have cd's and tapes that you can put into cd players and tape players to see if they work. So it is your responsibility to check if the item works. Especially because they have so much comming in all the time and are a non-profit org. they cannot spend money on checking if every item woks. Thats the great thing about the DI, its cheap, but you have to understand that alot of the stuff is crap.
