All four local news stations were on site before dawn on Monday, February 6th to cover the Grand Opening of the newest addition to the Goodwill network of retail stores; it’s Brand New Outlet Store. Located at 10596 Springfield Pike, in the Village of Woodlawn, adjacent to its corporate headquarters, the 5000 square foot outlet store is designed to provide shoppers an opportunity to purchase merchandise by the pound and, at greatly reduced prices. The big news of the day was the Grand Opening of Goodwill’s first-ever Goodwill Outlet Store in Cincinnati.
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:
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
Eager shoppers were interested to check out the brand new Outlet store with dozens lining up well before the store opened. “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.Ohio Valley Goodwill is grateful to all four local stations and reporters for their coverage of the Grand Opening of the brand new Goodwill Outlet store.
