"theft store" for "thrift store"

Maybe people think the store is a real steal…

From an obit: “Howard worked for the Salvation Army Theft Store in Kerrville, Texas”

“My mom was just here and she took me to Goodwill theft store to buy me some new pants because all of mine were way to big. ”

“Dose Rapid city have a Goodwill or some type of theft store?”
