The semi-annual Goodwill Sale event, a popular retail trade-in promotion resulting from the successful collaboration between the Elder-Beerman stores and Goodwill Industries of Wayne and Holmes Counties, Inc. will be held Wednesday, Sept. 14 through Wednesday, Sept. 28. Consumers who donate clean, gently used clothing and home textiles at the Wooster, Rittman, Orrville, Millersburg or Loudonville Goodwill stores, or the Wooster Elder-Beerman location, will receive a coupon for every single item they donate. The coupon will be good at Elder-Beerman retail stores for 20 percent off apparel, shoes, and accessories, as well as 15 percent off cosmetics, fragrances, and home store merchandise.
“Bon-Ton Stores has a long history of supporting the communities in which we operate,” said Bud Bergren, president and CEO of The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. “The Goodwill Sale is not just a major sale event; it’s an event that has the power to transform lives.”
“By donating your gently used items to Goodwill Industries of Wayne and Holmes Counties, Inc. as part of the Goodwill Sale, you’re doing your part to provide us with the necessary resources to fund our critical job training programs,” said Judy Delaney, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries. “These job training programs help families in your local communities achieve economic stability. Through our valuable partnership with Elder-Beerman, shoppers are helping us to increase our job placement rate.”
