Community thrift store accepts and sells donations of used clothing and housewares for a good cause. – In Short
Nonprofit chain of stores boasts more than 2,000 retail outlets and 3,300 donation centers nationwide. The charitable model relies on community members to contribute their gently used (or new) belongings--anything ranging from business and casual wear to home appliances, children's toys to books and computers--and purchase others' donations. The proceeds from the bargain-priced wares go toward job training and career-placement services for disadvantaged populations, including welfare recipients, homeless citizens and those with physical and mental disabilities.
Best Value for your money – Love to go "Digging" at this Goodwill Outlet. You never know what you may find here, and the prices are very reasonable. I have found many treasures at this location. The only thing I wish was different is that the occassional customers (like me) could get a better chance at grabbing some of the items that are thrown onto the tables several times during the day by the employees, that are brought in from the back warehouse either in a rolling plastic blue bin, or a large cardboard box, or small blue plastic bin. T'here are lots of "regulars",( people who are in the store everyday, that are flea market vendors) that congregate around the empty tables and wait for the merchandise to be thrown onto the tables, and they are very aggressive and grab things so quick, it doesn't matter that someone else may want a chance to grab some of the items for their own personal use, not to sell at a flea market. I have had items snatched from my hands before.From my observations, there has to be a more fair way of distribution within the store, so that everyone has a good chance of getting items they need. Maybe they need to clear the store and fill the tables first or something. This grabbing can become frustrating, because people get greedy and ruthless, besides all this, I like the outlet, and the adventure from the experience.
