The Rustic Chick shares her Reserve finds

Word is spreading about Reserve, our new store at 13th & Howard in the Old Market. Hannah at The Rustic Chick wrote about her latest visit on her blog:

I stopped at a new Goodwill store that we found down in the Old Market in Omaha, NE. It is called Goodwill Reserve…it is maybe one of the coolest Goodwill stores that I have ever seen…and I have spent a lot of time in Goodwill stores so I know! This little teeny iron is one of my purchases. Its and Asbestos Sad Iron where the bottom clips off as you can see in the picture. Its small and cute…and I paid like a dollar fifty for it! I pulled some up online and saw some people trying to sell them for like forty dollars…I think I got a deal!

Thanks for the kind words, Hannah!

If you have some Goodwill finds that you’d like to tell people about, tell us in the comments or share on our facebook wall. We love hearing about cool stuff people have found in our stores.

Gap partners with Goodwill – donate and get 30% off

Gap and Goodwill Omaha have announced a partnership encouraging consumers to clean out their closets for a cause. From May 19-29, Gap stores in the United States and Canada will accept clothing donations in support of the Donate Movement, an effort powered by Goodwill to educate the public on the positive impacts donations can have on both people and the planet.

When you donate clothing to Omaha Gap stores during this time period, your donations will be given to Goodwill Omaha and then sold in our stores. To thank customers for their generous donations, donors will receive 30-percent off their entire Gap purchase, including regularly priced and sale items, just in time for Memorial Day shopping.

Your donations support our mission of providing job training programs and employment placement services to the people who need them most. Donating to Goodwill also has a positive impact on the planet. Goodwill helps communities extend the life of usable items in environmentally sound ways, and diverts clothing items from local landfills.

To learn more about the Donate Movement and calculate the positive impact donations will have on people in the community, visit donate.goodwill.org.
