Donated items get second chance to support Goodwill’s mission “Building Lives That Work”
Marion Goodwill Industries is pleased to announce the opening of its first-ever Goodwill Outlet Store. Located in Marion, inside its corporate headquarters, the outlet store is designed to provide shoppers an opportunity to purchase merchandise by the pound and, at greatly reduced prices.
Items are $1.89 per pound and books are .59 cents per pound. Large items and furniture are priced as marked.
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. Marion Goodwill Industries works hard for people with disabilities and other barriers to employment get jobs. The new Goodwill Outlet Store will add a brand new opportunity for your generous Goodwill donations to make that happen.
The new Goodwill Outlet Store will also add to Goodwill’s recycling and salvage operation. Last year alone, Marion Goodwill recycled more than 3,850,000 pounds of plastics, metals, cardboard and textiles.
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.
The new Goodwill Outlet store is located at 340 W. Fairground Street in Marion.
Hours of operation: Open Every Day – 10am-6pm
