Goodwill retail stores feature a curated selection of high-quality donated merchandise. Volunteers help sort through donations and only resell the best items, which are cleaned and displayed in the stores' professionally-designed interiors. Proceeds fund Detroit-area job training, education, and placement programs.
A resale shop is a great place to find clothes and household items at a discount, but when shoppers enter Goodwill Detroit's retail stores, they might forget that's where they are. That's because the spaces feel more like upscale department stores than resale shops: hardwood floors, bright colors and lighting, and professional interior design combine to make browsing the racks an exciting experience. Shoppers might be surprised at the selection, as well. Name-brand items, often still bearing their tags, fill the spacious shops to grant visitors with fashion-forward apparel at far below retail prices. Of course, all this shopping serves a purpose. In 2011, it provided employment and training services to 17,038 people in Metro Detroit.
