Goodwill offers back-to-school deals

CHARLOTTE — Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont is ready to help families maximize spending dollars with clothing, furniture and electronics at sharply reduced prices compared to average costs at the mall or other retailers. In addition to already affordable prices, Goodwill will offer a “spend $20, get 20 percent off” promotion (no coupon necessary) just in time for back to school and back to college shopping from Aug. 6 to Aug. 13.

The promotion is valid at all of Goodwill’s 24 retail stores in the region, including the new specialty store GW and The GRID: Powered by Goodwill, located in Charlotte. Shoppers may purchase several outfits for the average price of one, or furniture for campus housing at prices college students can afford.

“Goodwill offers huge bargains as parents begin to empty their wallets for back to school and back to college shopping this year,” said Barbara Maida-Stolle, executive vice president of business enterprises at Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont. “Our prices are always low and in addition to clothing and shoes for back to school, we also offer electronics and furniture at significant discounts to check off the shopping lists for older students.”

Examples of unbeatable deals to score at Goodwill may include:

  • Laptop computer, refurbished with new operating system at The GRID: starting at $120
  • Couch and lamp at Goodwill retail stores: as low as $20 and $5, respectively
  • Children’s clothes: $2.79
  • Men’s and women’s denim: $4.99

In addition to checking off the shopping list while saving big, every purchase made at Goodwill retail stores supports job training and employment services for unemployed and underemployed individuals as they upgrade their skills to enter the competitive workforce.
