Pretty much the same crap you get in most stores..Have you been to the store Christine?
I guess we're back to the Buy American which most can't afford or find. Christine, do you have a lot of American made in your store or is it the same China stuff we get everywhere else? I might have to start shopping at your store instead from now on.

The grand opening is Oct 1st they are open now though. We have gone there and loved it its just like odd lot in PA. They have everything for your house for really cheap. We got DD 4 Christmas gifts for $49 that in wal mart would have cost around $85. All costumes are $10 as part of there opening special the same costume at the Halloween store was $49 and is $10 there! It was in no way all cheap china crap it was all the stuff you would find at any other retail outlet for cheaper.

I took a ride with DD before her nap and it has a lot of stuff - lots of factory serviced appliances (decent brands), TV's, As seen on TV section, costumes, housewares (baskets,candles,dishes,etc) some clothing and rugs, furniture, boxed perfume sets, some jewelry in a case (mainly watches and silver stuff), and lots of kids toys. It wasn't totally horrible - would be a good place to pick up some holiday gifts on the cheap.

DH and I took a ride over there today as well. They are still in the process of setting up and a lot of things were not yet tagged but to me it was more like a smaller size Walmart minus the food items. Some very nice things but definitely not discount from what I could see today.

Unfortunately Bessie you wont find MUCH anywhere in any store that is made in America. its sad in a way.

A new store opened up next to me called "Discount Gallery". Sounds alot like this store. No competition for me. At least thats what my customers say. Stop by and take a look.(if you can figure out their hours)

Botheredbyu, I don't worry about competition anymore. As a matter of fact I take it as a compliment. That means I am doing something right.

We went to Buddys this past weekend. I really liked it, actually, the prices were great, its like a discount store. We got a shirt that had a Kmart tag on it that said 9.99 for 2.00 and some really cute Mets slippers for 8.00 and 2 stuffed animals, little ones that retail 10.00 for 3.00 each. The employees were very courteous. There was some disorganization and some spaces that it was tough to get a shopping cart through but overall, would love for the store to stick around, I will be going back.

Christine,

Please ... give the place a chance. They just opened.

"Made in China Crap" Did you go to this store to discover this, or are you just bashing a new business and assuming it's "China made crap"?

Furthermore, Are you inferring that you sell nothing 'made in China' in your consignment, used item, second hand goods store?

It sounds like 'sour grapes' to me.

In this economy we should be supporting business, not bashing. That's my take on it.

My daughter and I love Buddy's. We get great buys on cosmetics, toiletries and such. "Up" brand (Target) makeup remover cloths that sell for $4.99 in Target are $2.00 in Buddy's. Ok, so some of the stuff is is questionable, but I'm going to stick my neck out and say there's something worth buying at Buddy's for most everyone. The sales people are friendly to boot, at least whenever we've been there. Give it a try - Ledgewood is only a 15-20 minute drive from H'town. Takes me that long to get across town to Shop-Rite some days!

Stopped in at Buddys this afternoon to check it out once more. My first stop there was when they were not fully open for business. It seems they have a good variety of things, especially toys, etc. for kids and at good prices and the merchandise is clean and fully stocked. Did not find anything today but I would definitely go back again.

I visited the store the other day, and i noticed they have low prices for mostly really outdated items. The TV's are all used and/or returns. They have cheap jewelry, and perfume. Their furniture is overpriced. At some point Walmart's furniture looked like a better deal. The guy working in the back was on his phone for 20 minutes before he even noticed me in the area. Then he came up to me and tried to sell me stuff, when i implied that i wasn't interested his attitude changed for the worse. The rest of the employees were nice though

Its a hit or miss place, some items are a great price others are not. I personally go in there for just a few items: Target cleansing anti-aging makeup clothes, usually $5 for $2. Shampoo and Conditioner that costs $24 a bottle at my salon for $10. And my perfume, which costs $50 for $22. So on just those things I save

You have to look around, but if items you buy frequently are cheaper at Buddy's its worth it to get it there.

i agree, it's hit or miss...alot of their items are close-outs, i love those Vanity Fair dinner napkins that sell for almost $3 at ShopRite & i get them there for $1.50 a pkg..also, i bought a beautiful curio cabinet there for $189..they delivered it on time & in great condition..as with most places like that, it's hit or miss..

I took a look the other day. Some things that if it was closer, I might stop in to look at again. But most of the stuff I was not that interested in. Not overly impressed.

Awesome, thx sunburst & shopper! This was one of the requests from the angel tree, so I think I'll go tame with a neutral blue as opposed to leopard, LOL. This particular tag only had initials, as opposed to a name like some of the others, so I have no idea who I'm buying for.

For anyone reading this, if you haven't grabbed a tag from the angel tree yet, I urge you to do so. Most of the requests really are THIS simple :)

I also bought the new Batman watch which shoots on the wall ( great item) I usually go to the ledgewood or whippany store but wanted to check out the new one.
