yes they are getting to be very high in there prices.. i can see paying for something, but it is not Kmart, Walmart,Sears or etc.it is Suppose to be for people who cant afford the high priced items at the other stores. you should remember that all the stuff is given to the store for free, so all of it is a profit. SO LOWER THE PRICES BACK DOWN TO WHERE THEY SHOULD BE BEFORE YOUR DOORS GET CLOSED.

I recently went back to our local Goodwill, and well nothing much as changed. I seen an item I liked in the kitchen items part of Goodwill. Nice item, still had it's box, but was either used or the store opened it. I was going to get it UNTIL I looked at the price they were asking $150.00 (149.99. That same item I know for a fact you can get brand new right from a retail store for half of what goodwill was asking.
When I think of Goodwill prices like $150.00 just doesn't come to mind. If most people could fork out $150.00 for a kitchen item, they probably wouldn't be shopping at Goodwill.
I know Goodwill has to make money in order to stay open, and have people willing to work there. But no matter what they price the item at it's 100% profit since it was donated to them.
man so solly BIG BUBBA done busted ya wheelchair, see you still want something for nothing. lmao

I go to Marion anymore. Their prices are much better at their Goodwill and Salvation Army. Went last week and got a pair of Jeans and a dress and didn't spend 6 bucks! For something here it would have been over 10.

To any of you that are interested, I do not take anything to donate to Goodwill Industries here in town, or any of them. There is a church thrift store (I don't remember the name of it) just a few doors away from Domino's Pizza. They are about in the middle in that block of buildings. At one time I know that they would use the monies from the thrift store to feed people with no money, plus give them a place to stay, and help them get on their feet. I've never seen Goodwill Industries do that, have you? And I've never seen a disabled person working in a Goodwill Store either, have you? And some of you have forgotten this. If Goodwill gets something REAL nice, they put it in the display showcase as a bid item. And people are still giveng them stuff for free?

To add to the list of places to go, and get a good bargain and nice used stuff, in Bellefontaine there is a place called, Worth Repeating, its a consignment shop, it's on the right hand side of the road just before you get to the JC Penny turn. It's up on the hill, nice big store, good prices and lots and lots of home furnishings too. I like it much better than Goodwill. There is a Goodwill in Bellefontaine too,on the left hand side of same road. Then a nice lunch at Tumbleweed is next!.

I don't live near you ,but the prices where I live have really gone up. I usually am only checking the "goods" section and I think one reason is because sooooo many home decor blogs are posting about all the stuff they get there and take home and "redo" . Also. people buy there to re-sell in "vintage" shops. I think it's increased traffic...not right, but I guess all we can do is shop elsewhere.

Salvation Army is right by the exit for 23. behind a furniture store across the road from meijer on the east side of town. I think wed is half off everything. students get discounts as well. good will is beside big lots in the same center as ci cis pizza, across the road from wal mart. all in marion

Goodwill prices are really to high, sometimes more than the original price. Also , management is very rude , like all donations go into her purse.
I find true antiques cheaper at the antique stories.
This is so sad when so many families need help, and goodwill is to expensive ....not a 70's recliner for 150.00 , crazy!
This is the Newberry , SC store... Please we need help!!!!
I go every day, since I was hurt in an accident.
Please, help us in need, Thank You!

Good Will. There just isn't enough of that, anywhere. Fortunately, there are places to find it and give it. For the latter, if you want an ashtray or blocks for your kids like legos, stop by and I'll make you some. Next will be wooden plates cups and bowls, stackable. "IdeaHaus - Kenton, Ohio" is my playground. In fact, every time I make a set of peanuts (linkable blocks) and give them to a family with children, it's well worth the $2.00 in materials and 10 minutes of finish grinding it costs to make.

On facebook, there are at least 3 "good will" groups. There are many ways we can help each other or sell products to each other, depending on your preference.

Goodwill is a non profit organization that uses the funds from its stores & contract sites to train individuals with disabilities. They have a rehabilitation facility in Lima that provides testing, training, job coaching & help with finding a job.

The Lima facility used to be over the Kenton store & now Dayton has it in their territory. I agree the prices have gone up, but so has expenses. If you have a problem with the Kenton store, then I suggest you call the Lima office to complain. If this does not help, then call the Dayton office.

It does benefit a lot of disabled people and a worth while non profit organization. The only way that management knows there are problems is when customers call and complain.

I donate to the Goodwill because I don't know where to take it so people could get the stuff for free. If someone knows of a place like that please do tell because I would take my things there instead. I just donated last month 3 garbage bags full of mens, womens and boys clothess to Goodwill.
Take it to Helping Hands in Kenton they give it to people free ineed.

They may use a VERY SMALL amount of their funds for ppl with disabilities...but the money they make from goodwill AND the dog pound go towards all the ppl in the county who are on cash assistance....you know the ppl who work at goodwill and the dog pound are all (maybe not all but 95% are) on cash assitance

Just went to the Goodwill store close to my home in Fort Worth.I was shocked and disappointed by the high prices on most of the items. I understand what the Goodwill does for the community but also know that if the prices were significantly lower more merchandise would sell. I turned away from purchasing a dining table, a wicker hamper, two lampshades and variety of other items because I could get the same thing new at Walmart or Dollar General for the same or even a lower price. I really liked these items but all were worn and needed cleaning or repair.

Goodwill's Charity Racket: CEOs Earn Top-Dollar, Workers Paid Less Than Minimum Wage

Goodwill has been operating under a false banner, they are not a charitable organization, and they make big bucks because people think they are a charity driven group, but they really are not a non-profit organization.
