How many of you love to spend less and get more? Yes, I am definitely one of those people who love to get a bang for my buck and I especially love the Goodwill!
I have been shopping at the Goodwill for years and come to find out I am now not the only one! Goodwill used to be the fun place to go with grandma to try on the most ridiculous outfits you could find, but now it is out with the old and in with new.
Recent articles that I have stumbled upon have stated that now, more than ever, the ratio of retail customers has risen 56% in the past three years. The people who have been donors in the past are now Goodwill’s greatest shoppers.Not only has the recession helped Goodwill’s success, but the enhancements to their ad campaign for the store have created a fashionable look for shoppers. Goodwill is now able to offer some name brands and some of the newest trends - the hunt is just a bonus.
If you are in Central Indiana Goodwill has launched a new boutique store concept located at 422 East Kirkwood Avenue, Bloomington, Indiana 47408 called Vintage Vogue at GW. It is a first of its kind and has had an incredible outpouring of support. Here is their mission statement : "Brace yourself for a brand new shopping concept with the opening of Vintage Vogue by GW. A boutique brand of Goodwill Industries of Central Indiana, Vintage Vogue offers a unique blend of chic, modern fashions and one-of-a-kind classics. The merchandise for Vintage Vogue is made possible by the generous donors in central Indiana. With the support of retail shoppers and donors, revenues generated from Vintage Vogue and all the other Goodwill retail locations help fund employment and educational services in central Indiana for young people and adults.
Goodwill now has its own blog to learn about and comment on the new trends!
I am a dedicated goodwill shopper and it now more fun than ever!
