Salinas, CA, November 06, 2019 - That’s the reality when shoppers comb the aisles or the online store at Goodwill. Each purchase enables the community-based nonprofit to better fund its job-training and employment placement services — so you’re actually giving twice.
Make Goodwill Central Coast your holiday headquarters — from setting your Thanksgiving table to finding that perfect gift on Black Friday and beyond.
Goodwill Central Coast stores are closed on Thanksgiving Day, allowing employees time with their families. But gearing up for Turkey Day has never been easier thanks to the wide range of items Goodwill sells at lower-than-retail prices.
Find deals on platters, wine glasses, table runners, silverware and more. Or create that perfect DIY tablescape with marked-down items such as candles, ornate pumpkins and decorative linens.
The busiest shopping day of the year begins at 7 a.m. at all Goodwill Central Coast stores. Find 25 percent off all items marked with a colored tag, along with Door Buster specials on new goods (including cookware).
Arrive early and stay late for two daily drawings in each store, where you could walk away with special merchandise.
Other special shopping days
There’s always a good excuse to shop at Goodwill during the Season of Giving. Join us for Small Business Saturday (Nov. 30), Sorting Sunday (Dec. 1) or Giving Tuesday (Dec. 3). Except for Thanksgiving, our stores are open throughout the holiday season.
Stocking Stuffer Campaign
Throughout December, all Goodwill Central Coast stores will put an emphasis on stocking stuffers priced in four categories (under $20, under $10, under $5, and under $2).
The list of stocking stuffers is as long as your imagination, but popular items include jewelry, games, earbuds, phone chargers, candy, ornaments, decorative mugs and books.
Remember, if you’re not in the shopping frame of mind, you can donate new and gently used items to Goodwill — all treasures for someone else to find and turn into jobs. From home pick-ups to tax write-offs, Goodwill makes donating as easy as possible. Find out more at www.ccgoodwill.org.
