RACINE -- Goodwill Industries has announced that they will open their first outlet store in Racine Friday, July 27, according to our partners at the Milwaukee Business Journal.
The idea of a Goodwill outlet store is selling unsold items from Goodwill Stores & Donation Centers. Items that don't sell for a period of time will be shipped to the outlet store, giving the public one last chance to purchase the items before they are recycled.
The store will be located at 1630 Enterprise Drive and will have approximately 120 rolling tables on the floor at all times. According to the press release, customers will have to 'pay by the pound' for most items, except for oversized merchandise like furniture.
According to the Milwaukee Business Journal, items purchased under 25 pounds will cost $2.19 per pound. Items more than 25 pounds, will cost $1.29.
Electronics and glassware will all priced at 69 cents per pound, while items priced per unit, such as CDs, DVDS, tapes, games and books will all be $1.
