Pulaski Goodwill to become Goodwill Clearance Center

If you think $3.50 is a good price for a pair of jeans, try $1.50 on for size.
Regular prices at the Pulaski Goodwill store will be drastically cut later this month as the store becomes Goodwill Industries of the Valley’s first Goodwill Clearance Center.
Apparently, Goodwill has numerous other Clearance Centers throughout the nation. However, the Pulaski facility at 1130 East Main St. has been chosen to be the first such center in this region.
“We are very excited to be opening our first Clearance Center in our service area,” states Bruce Phipps,
president & chief executive officer. “The new Clearance Center, the first of its kind for our Goodwill, will provide the Pulaski community and surrounding areas an even lower cost alternative for great quality clothing and household items for the entire family.”
He explained that Clearance Centers provide the public an opportunity to “benefit from rock bottom pricing” before unsold items are recycled through Goodwill salvage efforts.
Phipps says the Pulaski store will continue to carry the same high quality items that customers are accustomed to finding in Goodwill stores.
Under the new center, all clothing and shoes will be $1.50, books will be 4 for $1.00, and other household items, including furniture, will be individually priced for a last chance sale.
The last merchandise sold at regular prices will be Saturday, May 16. The store will close May 17-19 to prepare for a grand opening of the center on May 20 at 10 a.m.
The Clearance Center will have regular store hours: Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. It will be closed on Sunday.
The gently used clothing and household items that are donated by the community help support the training and employment programs for individuals who face barriers to employment. Last year, the sale of donated goods generated over $22 million in revenue and provided more than 400 jobs throughout Goodwill’s service area in Virginia.
Goodwill salvage efforts also kept more than 10 million pounds of material out of area landfills last year.
Goodwill Industries of the Valleys, a United Way partner organization headquartered in Roanoke, serves 31 counties and 14 cities in the Roanoke, New River and Shenandoah Valleys. Its mission is to help people and families achieve a better life through work and independence.
During the last fiscal year 90 percent of Goodwill revenues directly supported the training and employment programs enabling the organization to serve 10,815 individuals.
