The number of shopping options has multiplied in the past few decades. As a result, it can be difficult to decide where to go. We have countless options at the mall and on main street. There are thousands of options online. Even with so many options, you should still check out SF Goodwill when you’re next shopping. Here are 5 reasons why.
One of the best reasons to shop at SF Goodwill is the prices. You can find clothes, shoes, accessories, housewares, books, and furniture for well below retail prices. These items are often in near-new condition. So why pay more? Getting a bargain is especially important right now as prices are rising. In 2021, inflation rose to levels not seen in 40 years. At SF Goodwill, you can get the same amount for less.
IT IS FUN
Big-box stores and chains are predictable. That can be convenient, but it is not very fun. At an SF Goodwill store, you never know what you are going to uncover. You might find a cool graphic t-shirt, some vintage Japanese cups, or a nice print for your living room. There is a sense of discovery in every visit.
SUPPORT THE SF GOODWILL MISSION
When you shop at SF Goodwill, you contribute towards something that really matters. SF Goodwill is a non-profit organization. We reinvest our revenue into our business and our mission. We offer services and employment to people facing barriers to work. We know that many people struggle in the Bay Area to find employment and establish successful careers. Your purchase helps us to help others.
Shopping at SF Goodwill means supporting an organization with sustainability at the heart of its business model. When you donate, someone else can purchase your gently used items instead of buying new products. Your items become useful instead of becoming landfill. All of our operations are local. Our products are sourced, sorted, and priced in the Bay Area. We also run a fleet of e-trucks to transport goods between our locations. So, choosing us helps to decrease your impact on the environment.
WE ARE ONLINE TOO
We know that shopping in person is not an option for everyone at the moment. If you cannot visit us in one of our stores, you can find us online. You can shop with us from your sofa, bed, or kitchen table. There are thousands of listings active at any one time, and we add hundreds of new items every day. We have stores on eBay (here), Amazon (here), and shopgoodwill.org (here). Shopping with us has never been easier.
There are not many places where you can get great prices, be more sustainable, and support your local community, but SF Goodwill is one of them. So, next time you are about to buy a new item from a big retailer, check out one of our physical or virtual stores. We would really appreciate it.
