We’ve got three great Goodwill Window Sales coming up this Friday and Saturday. Get excited – these are going to be good!
- The Goodwill Bronx Window Sale: Tickets are distributed to customers on line by 7:45 a.m., and the doors open at 8. The store admits two customers at a time. Purchases are limited to two window items per person. At 9, the store opens to everyone unless there are still ticket-holders on line. Once they’ve made their purchases, any remaining window merchandise is up for grabs. You’ll find the Bronx Goodwill Store at 361 East 149th Street, Bronx, NY 10455 (phone 718-292-1083).
Saturday, March 3:
- The Goodwill East Harlem Window Sale: Tickets are distributed to customers on line at 8:15 a.m., and the doors open at 8:30 for window items only. The store admits three customers at a time. Purchases are limited to one item per person. At 9:30, the store opens to everyone and any remaining window merchandise is up for grabs. You’ll find the East Harlem Goodwill Store at 2231 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10035 (phone 212-410-0973).
- The Goodwill Stuyvesant Window Sale: Purchases are first come, first serve. Tickets are given out just before the doors open at 9:30 a.m. Two people are allowed in at a time to purchase two items each. When their transactions are complete, they may go to the back of the line if they want more. The store opens for everyone at 10 a.m., but the window sale line continues inside until the sale is over. You’ll find the Goodwill Stuyvesant Store at 1704 Second Avenue, New York, NY 10128 (phone 212-831-1830).
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.

The more donations we get, the more for everyone to buy, and the more funding for our programs and services to keep changing lives. Happy Weekend Window Sales!
