#2: Find costumes for the entire family

One of the best parts of Halloween is dressing up and pretending to be someone else for the day! If you still need something to wear this Halloween, Ohio Valley Goodwill is your destination for all kinds of costumes — for adults and children alike. Browse our selection of pre-assembled costumes or get creative and put together a DIY costume using clothing and accessories from around our stores. You can even find costume ideas for your pets at Goodwill! Pick out a festive bandana to tie around their collar, or use scrap fabric to make a superhero cape. There’s no shortage of possibilities when you use your imagination!

#3: Go green for Halloween!

Did you know that buying secondhand Halloween items is a smart move for you and the planet? Most of the time, people only wear a Halloween costume once. By shopping at Goodwill, you’re extending the life of these gently-used items and preventing them from clogging local landfills. Shopping at Goodwill for Halloween is a great way to reduce, reuse, recycle, and help the environment!

P.S. If you’re holding onto Halloween costumes or decorations you no longer need, donate them to Goodwill and keep the cycle going!

#4: Get so much more for so much less

The price of brand-new Halloween decorations and costumes can be downright scary! Save money by shopping at Goodwill for gently-used (and sometimes even new) Halloween-themed items. Our network of retail stores in and around Greater Cincinnati feature everyday low prices, so you know you’re getting the most value for your dollar!

#5: Make a difference in your community

Last but not least, shopping at Goodwill is a powerful way to impact your community! Why? Because Ohio Valley Goodwill is more than a Cincinnati thrift store, we’re a nonprofit organization on a mission to change lives through the power of work! Every purchase you make at Goodwill supports skill training, career development, job placement, and life enrichment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Throughout our 100+ years of service, Goodwill’s programs and services have helped thousands of deserving individuals overcome barriers to employment and become fully integrated in their home communities. But, we couldn’t do it without your donation and shopping support! Choose Goodwill for all your Halloween needs, and you’ll be making a meaningful difference right here in your own backyard. That’s a great feeling!
