I've just heard about these today. The Goodwill Outlet is much cheaper than the regular Goodwill stores. Items like clothes are sold by the pound.
The following is from the Indiana Goodwill site:
Clothing, accessories, housewares and toys:
$1.39 per pound for 0-19 pounds
99 cents per pound for 20-49 pounds
59 cents per pound for 50 pounds or more
Glassware and dishware:
59 cents per pound
Books and media:
Hardback Books – 50 cents each
Paperback Books – 25 cents each
Coloring Books, Magazines, Comics, Wall Calendars – 25 cents each
Records – 50 cents each
8-Tracks, Videotapes, CDs – $1 each
DVDs – $2 each
All other outlet store merchandise is priced as marked.
All Goodwill Outlet Store merchandise is sold as-is. No refunds or exchanges.
Bestill my beating heart! The only drawback is that there aren't many of these outlet stores yet. When I googled Goodwill Outlet Store, it came up with results in big cities like Nashville, Seattle, Indianapolis, etc. But hopefully the number will increase and those of us who don't live near major metropolitan areas, will have a chance to experience a Goodwill Outlet shopping trip!
