Goodwill in Paramus!

Love to shop and live in New Jersey? Well, good news!:  We’re opening a new Goodwill store in Paramus with a ribbon-cutting ceremony this Thursday, July 15th at 10 a.m.!

Located at 809 North State Route 17 (between the Ridgewood and Linwood Avenue Exits), the store opens Thursday, July 15 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m.

As a special treat, lucky customers will be able participate in drawings for valuable Goodwill gift certificates everyday from July 15th-17th. Normal store hours will be 10 a.m. – 9 p.m., Monday-Saturday.

By the way, did you know that income from every Goodwill store supports our programs for people with disabilities and other special needs, helping to overcome barriers to employment? It’s true – and every new store is a new drop-off point for donations, too!

Donations are tax deductible, and the Paramus store has already started taking in donations Monday – Saturday between 10 a.m.-6 p.m. In case you want to tame your own NJ closet, Goodwill accepts clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry, household goods, linens, computers, books, and small appliances or electronics in good working order.

Come stop by and say hi – we’d love to see you!

  1. Hello,
    Do you have a drop – off address for furniture? I have a gate leg table that seats 4 & a small humidor side table.


    1. Hi Kathleen,
      The Paramus drop-off location is right next door to the store itself: 809 North State Route 17, Paramus NJ (on the Southbound side, between the Ridgewood and Linwood Avenue Exits). Just make sure you drop-off the furniture during our drop-off hours: Monday – Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Thank you so much for your donation!


  2. Hello, I am retiring in January and would like to donate about 1/2 my work clothes. Is there a price guideline sheet for the tax write off that I could follow as I prepare the items for you?

    Thank you.


    1. Hi Suzanne,
      Dear Suzanne,

      First off, THANK YOU! We deeply appreciate your choice to donate to Goodwill, aiding our mission of getting people back in the economic mainstream. We are so grateful for supporters like you.

      Regarding tax information, Goodwill Industries International has a valuation sheet on their website that people can use as a guide. Go to – also, be sure to check the IRS website at for instructions and consult with your tax preparer about the best way to make sure your deduction is counted.

      Thank you again for your generosity!


    1. Hi Martha – Thank you for thinking of Goodwill! Unfortunately we’re unable to pick-up donations, including furniture. However, please keep us in mind for your future donations. Our programs depend on your support and we’re very grateful for it. Thank you for reading our blog and have a great weekend! Best, GoodwillNyNj


    1. Hi Michele – Yes, indeed, we do provide tax-deduction receipts if asked. Just make sure you drop-off your donations at the Donation Center right next-door to the Paramus Store. Thank you for considering Goodwill for your donations!


  3. Hello
    My husband and I are moving and we have a number of items we would like to donate. Do you take furniture, and if so, do you have a service that helps transport the items?


    1. Hi Melinda – Our apologies for our delayed response! Sadly, we are unable to offer a pick-up service. As for the furniture, outside of our NYC stores, we accept smaller pieces in good condition (and very, very much appreciate them). The best way to find out if your furniture is a good fit for donation would be to call your local Goodwill store manager. All of the stores’ info, including phone numbers, are here: . We hope this was helpful. Please know we greatly appreciate your thinking of Goodwill. Let us know if you have any questions and thank you for the comment!


    1. Hi Maggie – Yes, we do accept wheelchairs. We do not sell them, but give them away when somebody needs one. Thank you for thinking of Goodwill! It’s your donations that make our programs possible. For more information on our programs, check out – Thanks again!


      1. Hi Allison – The store has a mix of older and newer donated clothing items, along with jewelry, shoes, household items, furniture, toys and more. Take a look and let us know if you find anything special – we’d love to hear back!


  4. Thank you and sorry for the specific questions but do you think it would be likely I could find a denim jacket or shorts for a good price?


    1. Of course it depends on your taste, but we definitely have shorts and denim jackets for sale. Come on over & give us a try – we’d love to have you!


    1. We do carry large furniture in certain locations but it depends on inventory. Feel free to call your specific Goodwill to ask what they have in stock for the day before heading out.
