Recently, I took a trip to the Pasco Goodwill store to look for an inexpensive winter coat for my son. While there, I looked around a bit at what they had to offer. What I found was a pair of jeans with a price tag of $34.99, coats that cost $20 or more, Halloween costumes for $20, etc. I couldn't believe it. I thought Goodwill was a store that prides itself on helping the community.
The items they sell are all donated. Most of the people who shop at Goodwill are members of the community who cannot afford to pay retail store prices for the items they need, and they shouldn't have to at a community thrift store.
I just wanted to voice my opinion and frustration with Goodwill Industries. It seems to me that they are getting a little greedy with the items that the community is donating to help other, less fortunate members of the community.
