4 Great Reasons to Go Thrift Shopping at Goodwill

Over the years, thrift shopping has become increasingly popular among people of all ages. Whether you’re a bargain hunter or a fashionista looking for unique vintage finds, thrift stores are the perfect place to shop for one-of-a-kind items at value prices. Here are some of the top reasons to go thrift shopping at Goodwill.

Create your own style for less

Fashion is often considered a language, and the clothes you wear can tell a story about you and your personality. Through your clothing and accessories, you can share your unique story and communicate your style with the world. When you go thrift shopping at Goodwill, you can build your own style and express yourself through fashion for much less than department store prices.

Find hidden gems

Thrift shopping at Goodwill often feels like treasure hunting, because you never know what “hidden gems” you might find! Our inventory is updated every day with donated clothing, accessories, jewelry and household goods, all priced at a fraction of their original value. If you’re on the hunt for brand-name designer items, head to our Goodwill boutique stores, where you can find gently used designer goods at fantastic prices.

Do good for the environment

Thrift shopping is inherently environmentally-friendly. By shopping secondhand instead of buying brand new clothing or household goods, you help extend the life of reusable items and prevent unnecessary waste from filling area landfills. When you purchase gently used items at Goodwill, you’re playing an important part in keeping our planet beautiful!

Give back to your community

When you make the choice to thrift shop at Goodwill, your purchase goes further to positively impact your community. Every item purchased in one of our retail stores helps support Goodwill’s mission to change lives through the power of work. The money you spend helps fund Goodwill’s job training and programs for individuals with disabilities and others facing barriers to employment. Last year alone, Ohio Valley Goodwill helped more than 3,400 individuals receive skill training, career development, job placement, and life enrichment services, with help from Goodwill shoppers just like you.

As you can see, there are plenty of great reasons to start thrift shopping at Goodwill! Whether you’re looking for great bargains or want to live a most environmentally-friendly lifestyle, Goodwill has you covered. Best of all, thrift shopping at Ohio Valley Goodwill is a wonderful way to “pay it forward” and make a positive difference in the lives of people living right here in Greater Cincinnati.
