National Thrift Shop Day is a fun way to support sustainable shopping and find unique items at great prices. It’s also a day meant to raise awareness for local thrift shops like Goodwill, which provide vital services to our community.
National Thrift Shop Day is recognized nationwide each year on August 17 — and at Ohio Valley Goodwill, we never miss a reason to celebrate the joy of thrifting!
Here’s how you can join in the fun with Ohio Valley Goodwill:
Since it’s a national holiday, add something special to your thrift shop outing! Create a contest with your friends to see who can find the most interesting, valuable, or creative item within a budget at your nearest Goodwill thrift store.
Or, put together a fashion show and challenge your friends to create a stylish look using only things found at a Goodwill thrift store. Make an event of the show, then share the fun on social media and tag us (@cincigoodwill)!
Use social media to share your thrift shopping tips, tricks, and favorite finds. Remind others that thrifting is a sustainable alternative to buying new items from a traditional retail store. You might inspire others to give thrift shopping a try and discover its benefits!
Each year, Goodwill helps hundreds of individuals with disabilities in the Cincinnati region find vocational independence. You can support our mission by learning more about what we do and why we do it. Armed with information, you can serve as a vital advocate for our work.
Remember, National Thrift Shop Day is all about embracing secondhand shopping and celebrating its positive impact on the environment and local communities!
Whether you’re shopping at an Ohio Valley Goodwill Thrift Store in Cincinnati, donating, or getting creative with thrifted items, have fun and celebrate the joy of finding unique treasures while being mindful of sustainability.
Celebrate with us this year and help us provide life-enriching opportunities to individuals with disabilities and our nation’s veterans.
