Why aren’t there any good finds at Goodwill anymore? Simple, they’re selling anything of value online in the same fashion as eBay. You bid on an item, pay shipping, AND a handling charge.
Considering Goodwill has raised their in-store prices, and selling all the good stuff online, why even go there? The shelves are now packed to the gills with high priced, dirty JUNK.
If you’re pickin’ for treasures, thrift stores are way better, the prices are fair and you at least have a chance in finding something to get excited about. They don’t ask you to donate your change a the check out either.
In my opinion, if you’re on a budget, the dollar stores across the nation offer what you need a heck of a lot cheaper, and it’s clean and new. Bottom line, if Goodwill wants people to shop their stores, maybe there should be something in them that’s worthy of our money?
I hope Goodwill is actually helping the community, it’s a controversial subject that I can’t judge one way or the other. I’m speaking out only as a disappointed consumer, x-consumer actually.
