It’s never easy to say good-bye, especially when we get the kind of goodwill and warmth we get from our stores’ local communities. However, sometimes it’s necessary, and so it’s with deep appreciation and fond memories that we closed the Patchogue Goodwill’s door for the very last time.
Located in Patchogue, NY at 479 East Main Street, 11772 in Long Island’s Suffolk County, the Patchogue Goodwill officially closed on Thursday, March 21. Goodwill removed all collection bins from the premises the last week of March. We are grateful to the Patchogue community for supporting the store and its programs for all these years. We invite Suffolk County residents to visit our two other stores in the county:
1500 Middle Country Rd.; 11720
P: (631) 698-0860
1900 Jericho Turnpike; 11731
P: (631) 462-4219
And our stores in Nassau County, including our brand-new at Massapequa:

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.
