Bad Newton Abbot charity shop experience

Yesterday I went to a charity shop in Queen Street and dropped off a nice coat which is of very quality and in great condition.
After handing over the garment to two ladies behind the counter and heading outside – I overheard one of the woman say something along the lines of “Has she gone yet? I’m going to try this on”.
Very annoyed, I went back and told them that it was to be sold on the shop floor for charity and NOT FOR THEM! They looked a little sheepish and didn’t say too much.
Does this sort of thing go on a lot? Has anyone had similar experiences?
Maybe I’m being naïve but I was shocked that such people, who are supposed to be going a good deed, would be using it as a mirage to steal from people.
I won’t name the shop but I’ll be writing to their head office too.
