Thrifting tip: Goodwill Industries was founded in Boston, MA in 1902. I love the stores, but did you know that prices vary significantly from store to store?
I went to two different Goodwill stores within 15 miles of each other and I certainly noticed the pricing was different.
Each store offered the usual "color of the week" discount, but when picking through the merchandise, I quickly determined that glassware and clothing was a tad more expensive one from store to the other. I'm talking like regular glassware costing $1 more! Sweaters and blouses were $1 higher. Significant!
According to its website, each Goodwill store is autonomous, thus allowing it to set prices based on its local community. I guess that explains it!
Overall, the finds at Goodwill are still worth checking out.
Pre-pandemic, you could find me at Goodwill at least once a week. It's a great place for unique one-of-a-kind finds, like home decor and clothing. Vintage fashion from the 80's is very popular and you'll find racks and racks at Goodwill.
Are the 80's vintage? Geez, I'm getting old!
