Walmart Canada owns Value Village.
I heard this today, but can't find a whole lot about it online, aside from some message board threads.
Anyone know if this is true? - Tue, 14 Oct 2008 10:18pm

They'd have to declare they were a subsidiary on their website. I'm going to have to call BS on it. - Wed, 15 Oct 2008 9:08pm

On their website they say...

We are a privately held company with two primary owners, the son of our founder and a private equity firm located in New York/Los Angeles. We own and operate all of our stores and do not offer franchise opportunities.
We only operate as Value Village in Washington, Oregon and Alaska in the United States. We operate as Savers in the other U.S. states. We are not in all 50 states. We also operate as Value Village in all Canadian Provinces. We are Village des Valeurs in Quebec. Our stores in Australia are Savers.

There are many thrift stores in the U.S. that go by Value Village and they are not all related to our chain - only those in Washington, Oregon and Alaska.

I work at Value Village and on top of all the stupid questions customers usually ask me, I get this new one thrown in.

Some stupid woman who already bitched to me about the long lineup asked me where "Register one" is (she had a complaint, probably about me because I refused to talk to her after she was being rude to me)... I said "It's the first register... obviously".. idiot.. AHHH I hate it, it's so busy now because of Halloween. HALP! - Mon, 20 Oct 2008 10:35pm
