Teacher Surplus Sale!

For those of you who haven’t been to our Goodwill Outlet (4005 Campus Drive, Fort Worth, TX 76119) before and are planning to come to our Teacher Surplus Sale on Saturday (8 a.m. – 6 p.m.), we’ve created a handy guide on how to shop and save at this unique store!

“The Goodwill Outlet isn’t your typical Goodwill store,” said Rosemary Cruz, Vice President of Retail Sales and Donated Goods for Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth. “The store is set up with rolling bins that are brought out with fresh merchandise every 30 minutes. Shoppers dig through the tables to find their deals. Items found in the Outlet are perfect for those DIY and Pinterest projects.”

Teachers can expect to find crafts and items to decorate their classroom including binders, glue, yarn and other crafting materials, storage containers, writing and coloring utensils, seasonal decorations and educational games in sale bins.  We’ll have at least one row that is exclusive to teachers on the day of the sale, but you’re free to shop the entire store as well, all for just 49 cents per pound with a teacher’s I.D.

The Goodwill Outlet, which launched in 2013, sells items that didn’t sell during a five-week rotation in a Goodwill Fort Worth retail store or was deemed unfit for traditional sale. Clothing and smaller items are sold for just $1.49 per pound, while any single item seven pounds or more is sold at a flat price of $5. Many individuals who typically shop the Outlet have their own resale operations or are interested in repurpose projects.

As with all Goodwill Fort Worth retail locations, revenue from sales at the Outlet go to support Goodwill’s charitable mission of providing jobs and job training to individuals with disabilities or other barriers to employment.
