Goodwill Outlet Store NOW Open on Saturdays and Spring Donation Drives!

outlet-store-brand-mark-2017Ohio Valley Goodwill is excited to announce that due to popular demand, it’s new Outlet Store, located next to its Tri-County store, is NOW Open on Saturdays! The Outlet store recently opened in February and immediately customers asked for expanded store hours. The organization is happy to provide the new Saturday hours for the convenience of its wonderful shoppers. NOW Open on Saturdays from 9 am until 6 pm, the Outlet is also open Monday thru Friday.

The concept for the new Goodwill Outlet Store is to offer items which haven’t sold in Goodwill stores, to the many shoppers who still recognize their value. Goodwill works hard for people with disabilities and our nation’s veterans in Greater Cincinnati get jobs. The new Goodwill Outlet Store will add a brand new opportunity for your generous Goodwill Donations to make that happen.

Prices by the pound are as follows:
Glass .49/lb
Housewares .89/lb
Clothing, toys .99/lb
Purses, accessories .99/lb
NEW PRICE: Shoes $1.79/lb

Prices by the item are as follows:
CD/DVD/Records $1.00 each
Soft Back Books .25 each
Hard Back Books .50 each

“Goodwill is excited to offer this novel opportunity for our wonderful shoppers,” said Vanessa Cornett, Sales Manager. “It allows Goodwill to give our donations a second chance to support our important mission of putting people to work in our community.” Moreover, the new Goodwill Outlet Store will also add to Ohio Valley Goodwill’s award-winning recycling and salvage operation. Last year alone, Ohio Valley Goodwill recycled more than 49,000,000 pounds of plastics, metals, cardboard and textiles in Greater Cincinnati.

Merchandise bins, including book bins, rotate every few hours. Bins are removed from the sales floor and replaced with a completely different selection of merchandise, so those who shop daily at the new Goodwill Outlet store have the opportunity for fresh finds several times throughout the day.

Earth Day recycling imageOhio Valley Goodwill is also very much looking forward to its Spring Community Donation Drive events taking place in April. Earth Day weekend this year will be especially busy as the organization is not only hosting its traditional Electronics Recycling Celebration on Sunday, April 23rd from 11 am until 5 pm at all 34 of its Greater Cincinnati donation centers but also, for the first time, an IKEA furniture donation event on Saturday, April 22nd from 10 am until 6 pm at the IKEA location in West Chester. Generous donors will receive a coupon good for $20 off a purchase of $150 at IKEA (limit one per household).

“Goodwill is very pleased to have the opportunity to partner with IKEA on this Earth Day inspired furniture donation event,” said Jeff Eastham, Operations Director. “As a long time option for Greater Cincinnatians who choose to recycle responsibly, Goodwill is happy to have the opportunity to join with IKEA to promote this community outreach and education opportunity,” added Eastham.

Ohio Valley Goodwill Industries is proud of its long time commitment to environmental stewardship and providing a convenient option for Greater Cincinnatians who wish to recycle clothing, electronics and other household items responsibly. Please join Goodwill on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22nd from 10 am until 6 pm at IKEA for the first-ever furniture donation event and on Sunday, April 23rd from 11 am until 5 pm for the 4th Annual Goodwill Electronic Recycling Celebration.
