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.
Tis not GOODwill anymore, more like GREEDwill – In the last year the 'Good'will in Denham has become more like a FOR PROFIT second hand store, with prices that are occasionally higher than retail. Prices in general have more than doubled on many kinds of items and is absolutely ridicously high in some cases. All this seemed to take effect when there was a shift in policy once management changed at the top of the company. Certain items increased - jeans- 2.49 to 5.95, belts .99 to 1.99. and anything MISC items NOT addressed in register has the managers option for pricing. a delapidated wheelchair that needed the seat replaced -$75.00 Come-on! a person that needs a wheelchair? $75 - I just don't get it.
Store Managers must be getting paid on commissions now!
