I thought the Goodwill place was for non-profit?

By the looks of their new building, I would say there's a lot of profit in the non-profit business.

Their prices are outrageously high.

Isn't Goodwill supposed to give the money to sick people or something? Or is the money to buy big fancy buildings?

Goodwill is not a non profit nor a charity. . . That's right they take your stuff FOR FREE put a ridiculous price on it and pocket it all the CEO is rolling in money. . Google it

The charity portion of the money is used for job preparation & placement for folks with disabilities.

Wow I did not know that. Sounds like crooks using "Goodwill" to get themselves rich.

I wonder how many other people didn't know this?
imagine that

The former CEO of the Goodwill of Southern California was the highest paid Goodwill executive in the country. He received more than $1.1 million in total compensation.

Thats why I never go there and I never donate any of my stuff there. When I first walked into Greenevilles goodwill store I thought I had walked into Belk or Macys by mistake when I seen their prices.

Goodwill stores in SC are not like that. They do not charge tax and employees are not allowed to purchase anything in the store they work in.They are truly non-profit. The stores in Tn and NC are RETAIL stores. I LOVE my Goodwill stores. If you think their CEO makes a lot of money,,,, check out what the CEO of the Salvation Army makes. You better be sitting down!

Actually, I love the Goodwill stores here in Asheville, as well. And, though they do charge tax, the employees here also adhere to the rule that they are not allowed to purchase anything in the store that they work.

I agree. From hearsay, the businesses/workshops that employ the mentally challenged here in Greeneville pay about the same wage. It's not just Goodwill.

Greeneville store should be boycotted until it changes its policy on employees getting all the good clothes first. WJHL should do an investigation on this.

That defeats the purpose of giving your clothes away to help the less fortunate.

Check out the Habitat for Humanity thrift shop on 11E just west of the Summer st overpass. High quality clothes at VERY reasonable prices. I would pay twice what they ask and still feel I got a great deal. They have many other household items, building supplies and furniture as well. The people are pleasant and helpful.

The church run thrifts, Opportunity House, and Habitat are the only ones that are truly non-profit. Everyone else lives off the profits.
