Does your Goodwill store have Dollar Days Sales??
Ours does, quarterly. Saturday was the day. I got 25 items for $25. My dad showed up as my son and I were walking in the store, and so did a lady I work with. My dad was so happy with the great deals he got. He grabbed all of the clothes in my hands and paid for them while I was still shopping. I don't think I've seem him that proud since I graduated from college. You can't try anything on, but I only had 1 item out of the 7 items that I bought for myself that did not fit.

Good deal!!!

I haven't been in ours in ages (I am ashamed to say!). Ours always did the half-price all pink tag items would be half price on Tuesday, etc. They were grouped, say pink tags were skirts. So if I were looking for a particular type of item, I'd go on its half-off day.

that would be great
but we don't get those dollar days here! They mark the prices so high here, I'm better off buying new!

The nice part of living in a small town is that when I don't know what I'm doing, someone else does

Our Goodwills have really gotten expensive on some items. I go to the bargain barns that 2 of them have. There housewares are usually .25 and clothes near 1.00 each piece. I buy a lot of toys/books for the kids.

Will be going later today.

the ones near me have something on sale everyday usually 25% off a color tag it has 50% one day a week at least and dollars days once a month for a specific color tag.

I am dissapointed in the price hike that the books have taken over the last year. Last year kids books were 25 cents now they are $1 for the soft back...

busy calling my dragon back please look back later

Ours has gotten expensive. They get new Target items and sometimes they will have them priced a lot more than it originally sold for.

Ours has 1/2 off days, but they do not usually post any notice in advance... so I always miss it!

Good Luck to ALL!!

At ours every Monday a different color tag is .99 cents but you need to get there early or everything good is gone (unless your lucky). However, the everyday prices are not bad so there is still plenty to buy. They also do not charge sales tax in this state for thrift store purchases which really helps keep the prices down.

Goodwill in Millersburg just built a new building and had their grand opening about 2 weeks ago. I went ..and not only do they have a new building they have new HIGH prices too. I think I'll just stick to the Goodwill here in Coshocton where its still cheap.

no, but I wish they did.
They have a card that gets a stamp for every $10 you spend, when it's full you get a 20% discount - that's it.

Each one seems different. One will have great prices, one will be way overpriced.
