That’s right – it’s once again time for the Weekend Window Sale update! This week’s looking especially good for Harlem, Greenwich Village & Gramercy Park, but we’ll also be announcing a great 25%-off Storewide Labor Day Sale soon, so no matter where you live, be sure to stop by a Goodwill near you!
FRIDAY, AUGUST 31:
- The 23rd Street Goodwill Store Window Sale: The sale begins at 9 a.m., and is first-come, first-serve. Each customer is given a ticket in the order they enter the store. They may pick two window items to buy. When the purchase is made, they may rejoin the line to make another selection. You’ll find the Goodwill 23rd Street Store at 220 East 23rd Street, New York, NY 10010 (212-447-7270).

Two customers come in at a time, and may choose two items each to purchase. If they want more, they must go to the back of the line and get another ticket. The doors open for everyone after all of the window customers are done, usually 10-10:15. You’ll find the Goodwill Greenwich Village Store at 44 West 8th Street, New York, NY 10011 (212-477-7024).
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 red lacquered Chinese lions to a Ferragamo heels to pristine electric guitars. Crowds form early, so try to get to the store well before doors open.
