Goodwill Has Opened Up an Outlet Store in Cedar Rapids
If you love thrifting, you'll definitely love the new Goodwill Outlet Store here in the Corridor!
According to Facebook, Goodwill of the Heartland has officially opened a Goodwill Outlet out near the Eastern Iowa Airport. The new store is located at 8200 6th Street SW, and it looks a bit different than your typical Goodwill store. The space is filled with big blue bins they refer to as "boats," and shoppers will be able to sift through them to locate items that they want to purchase. A Facebook comment from Goodwill of the Heartland says that the products available at the store are "a random assortment of incoming donations that haven't been processed, so there will be opportunities to score some real finds!"
As far as pricing goes, the Goodwill website says that general merchandise costs $1.49 a pound, paperback books cost .25 cents, hardcover books are .50 cents, and furniture is priced as marked.
It's important to note that all sales are final and that gloves are required when shopping. Also, if you bring a child, they must be supervised at all times, and the location will NOT accept donations. You can check out a full list of rules for the Goodwill Outlet HERE.
If you're interested in checking out the new store, it is open as of today! The hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. When you go check it out, be sure to let us know what kind of goodies you ended up going home with!
