As Students Return to The Classroom This Fall, Families Can Find Something For Everyone At Goodwill “” Without Breaking The Bank


It’s been a long year and a half since the pandemic began, and we’ve all spent a lot of time in our pajamas.

Gone are the days of lounging in front of virtual classrooms in well-worn t-shirts and sweats. Instead, kids and adults alike are ready to show off their individual personalities to the world. There’s no better place to find unique outfits and distinctive school supplies than at Ohio Valley Goodwill’s network of 19 retail stores.


Whether your kids’ style is best expressed through vintage t-shirts and sneakers, retro ’90s throwback gear, or modern brand-name items, the whole family can have fun browsing the aisles at Goodwill on a back-to-school treasure hunt, mixing and matching the perfect pieces for each family member. Beyond clothes and shoes, Goodwill stores are filled with school supplies, too, from art materials and notebooks to musical instruments, sports equipment, bikes, helmets, lunchboxes, water bottles and more “” all at lower prices than the big box store.Back to School student
