I shop at all the thrift stores in the area and when I travel my Sienna is programed to stop at all Goodwill stores.
Goodwill is always my favorite thrift store. The prices are fair; they give discounts to seniors one day a week and now they are having days when everything in all the stores is 50% off. (On these days, I start early and shop til I drop!)
I like Goodwill because their employees know how to use a cash register. In so many thrift stores the employees add everything in their heads and then give me a price. I do not like this method.
I like Goodwill because their employees are friendly and recognize me when I come into the stores. They smile and joke yet they are efficient and honest.
I like Goodwill because, unlike some thrift stores, the prices are fair and set and I do not have to haggle. I do not like to haggle.
I like Goodwill because they have nice bags to put my purchases in and they have push carts to put my heavy purse and purchases in.
I like Goodwill because they organize their clothes by color and often by size.
I like Goodwill because sometimes I can find a real treasure that is cheap. I am always on the look out for these!
I like Goodwill because I am a decorator and have found some real great things to use in my homes.
I like Goodwill because it is exciting to go in any store. I rarely know what I am looking for when I enter, but I always find so many things to purchase. I usually walk out with a cart load of treasures that I was not expecting.
I like Goodwill because they have big stores and people are not crowded and bumping into each other (except on those 50% off days).
I like Goodwill because they have employees who will help me get large purchases into my Sienna.
Every trip to Goodwill is an adventure.
And because I like Goodwill so much, I always give my donations to them.
Review from Guidestar
I've been on disability for years and was turned on to GW by the Dept of Voacational Rehab. I started volunteering in the public relations dept and was soon hired. I am limited in the amount of hours I can work and they totally work with me on that. I decided to change jobs and they placed me in another job at shopgoodwill.com. Its great........I have a great boss who helps out when needed. I know so many success stories from people who work there. Its a great organization.
