The Goodwill chain here in the Twin Cities does this once or twice a year. Fill a bag for a certain price though I forget what the price was. They give you these small-ish paper bags made specifically for them (have Goodwill printed on the side) though. Smaller than your average paper grocery bag if I recall correctly. The cashier crammed so much in there the last time the bag split open. She let it slide though since I'm there just about every day.
The prices I quoted are for Goodwill which is the biggest chain with 20+ stores over the metro area. Unique Thrift, Savers and ARC Value Village are pricier. Suits from 24.99 up to $100+. Ties from $8 to $25. Sportcoats at $15+. It's ridiculous.

The Goodwill store that Dahl5yankees mentioned the other day put out 4 Armani Collezioni suits out a month or so ago for $74.99 for the jacket and $49 for the pants. Each time it came around for that color to go half price (then $1.49 a couple days later), they'd pull them and re-tag them. They sat around forever
