Back-to-school shopping can be a stressful and expensive trip for many parents and children preparing for the new school year. According to the National Retail Federation, families are spending less on back-to-school shopping this year after splurging in 2014. Goodwill is here to help families find bargains and maximize their budgets with clothing, electronics and furniture at sharply reduced prices compared to the mall or other retailers. At Goodwill, families can purchase several outfits for the average price of one, or furniture for campus housing at prices college students can afford.

Goodwill offers values all across the board for back-to-school and back-to-college shopping. Children’s clothing at Goodwill starts as low as $2.79, and men’s and women’s denim for teens as low as $4.99. Families can score shoes for children at the low price of $3.49, with adult shoes priced at $4.99. As often as children wear out clothing and shoes, Goodwill is the place to purchase these items for less in preparation for the inevitable holes and stains. Why spend more on a pair of gloves when children may come home off the bus missing one – at Goodwill, accessories can be found for as low as 99¢.

At The GRID: Powered by Goodwill, our electronics store in the University area, high school and college students can purchase laptop computers for as low as $99.99, printers as low as $29.99, and video game systems such as PlayStation and Xbox for study breaks from $9.99 and up.

For college students looking for furniture to decorate the dorm or apartment, Goodwill carries furniture of all varieties, including desks, couches, tables, dining chairs, dressers, rugs and more as low as $14.99.

Head to a Goodwill retail store near you this week to check off everything on your shopping list while saving big. In addition to purchasing new clothing, Goodwill is a great place to donate last year’s clothing as you clean out closets to make room for the new fall wardrobe. Plus when you shop back-to-school at Goodwill, your support funds job training and employment services to help individuals in our community find work and earn wages to support themselves and their families.
