Stop in frequently. Most stores have a constant turnover of merchandise on a daily basis.
Some shoppers like to bring in a seamstresses’ tape measure because sizes are not consistent between brands and sizes have changed through the years. This will ensure the items you purchase fit.
Some shoppers also like to bring an eraser to test silver items.
Find out store policies on markdowns, holds and the methods of payment your Goodwill accepts. If policies aren’t posted, ask the sales staff about them.
At Goodwill Outlet stores, merchandise is generally rotated multiple times per day with an even more robust rotation. Merchandise is often times displayed in lots and in bulk. These lots rotate in a first-in first-out rotation and items are generally purchased by the pound. Some Goodwills offer discounts on the price per pound when you purchase larger volumes. If you’re looking for treasures, Outlets provide a great chance to find a treasure for cheap if you’re willing to dig a little.
