Goodwill to offer back-to-school sale on jeans
WINSTON-SALEM — The average cost of blue jeans is about $56.
Compounding the problem for parents is that the average middle school student may change his clothing size two or three times a year.
But according to representatives of Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina, help is on the way.
This summer, Goodwill stores are offering a deal on jeans. On Aug. 2-11, Goodwill stores in the Northwest region will offer a buy-one, get-one deal on jeans.
“We wanted to run this special sale in order to help parents save money as they get their kids ready for school to start back in the fall,” said Pam Anglin, vice president of communications for Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina. “But we aren’t forgetting the parents. All jeans are buy one get one free.”
Kids’ blue jeans will be priced at $2.29. Adult sizes will be $4.99.
