As if that weren’t enough Goodwill hunting fun, Goodwill celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and our customers with a 30%-off Storewide Sale onMonday, January 15th!
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s emphasis on “doing for others” and the value of work, we’re delighted to say that income from Goodwill stores goes to support Goodwill programs, which focus on helping people achieve employment – in effect, you’re helping your community when you shop and donate Goodwill. Thank you for your support and enjoy the sales!
*Just in case you’re not in the know yet, a Goodwill Window Sale is when the best items in the store (which have been displayed in the window for days if not weeks) go on sale. There are often designer items and high-priced toys in the mix. We’ve seen everything from an XBox to a Prada suit to a gorgeous electric guitar. Crowds form early, so try to get to the store well before doors open.
