Ten Thrifty Tips for Shopping at Goodwill NCW
Goodwill NCW is a retail operation unlike any other. When you shop our any of our north central Wisconsin store locations you are not only helping your wallet, your helping your home community.
Here are 10 reasons to explore the world of Goodwill NCW:
1.) COME EARLY TO FIND A TREASURE
Because of the unique and ever-changing nature of our donated inventory, each Goodwill shopping venture is a "treasure shopping" experience. You NEVER know what one-of-a-kind discovery you're going to find.
We restock our stores throughout each day to make sure you always find a variety of merchandise. But super shoppers arrive early in the day to have the very best selection.
2.) SHOP THEM ALL
When you visit one of our smaller market locations -- such as Shawano, Waupaca, Marshfield, Stevens Point, Rice Lake, etc. -- you may discover fewer shoppers "competing" for those rare and wonderful "finds."
3.) WATCH FOR DISCOUNT DAYS
Every Tuesday is Senior Discount Day at every Goodwill NCW store. Shoppers 60 years of age or better receive a 10% discount.
4.) KEEP CLEAN AND NEAT
Goodwill NCW offers "Never Outs" to make sure you have the household products you always need. These include kitchen and bathroom cleaners along with the perfect mop, broom or bucket.
5.) LOOK IN THE HOUSEWARE SECTION
If you are tired of your old dishes or are looking for a special wedding gift, we frequently have both vintage and unusual glassware and china that are perfect for you or a young couple.
6.) VISIT OFTEN
Each week, we feature the "Color of the Week" for a 50% savings. You can check the ticket color to see the actual price of the item, and because we change our merchandise every day -- every day is a new thrifty shopping experience.
7.) HIGH FASHION, LOW PRICES
You can spend easily more than a $100 for a pair of designer signature jeans at some clothing retailers ... OR we can sell you the same jeans for less than $10. That's what savvy fashionistas, college students and budget-conscious consumers have turned to us for decades.

8.) A CUP OF JOE, A UNIQUE BOUTIQUE
When is a Goodwill store & training center more than just a Goodwill store and training center?
When you visit the Green Bay West store, you also can enjoy a cup of coffee, join a club or enjoy an open mic night at our Harmony Cafe' located within the same building.
Our Rib Mountain store also is home to The Talent Shop, a one-of-a-kind boutique that allows artisan seniors to produce unique items for sale.
9.) THE PERFECT GIFT
Giving -- or receiving -- a Goodwill NCW gift card is fun, easy-to-use and (best of all) shows that you care about your home community. It's the perfect present for the conscientious and thrifty shopper.
If you are giving a holiday or incentive gift to employees or professional associates, a Goodwill gift card sends the message that you care about them AND the communities they call home.
10.) GOOD FOR YOUR WALLET, GOOD FOR YOUR COMMUNITY
Not only will shopping at Goodwill NCW go easy on your wallet, but every dollar you do spend benefits your community by supporting our broad array of programs and services.
Remember: Goodwill NCW is about much more than just clothing. Our products are as diverse as the people who shop for them.
