Ready to hear who won the $20 Goodwill gift certificate giveaway? There were lots of great guesses as to the correct color rotation – wanna know what was correct? Here it is – the color tags at Goodwill stores in Colorado Springs go in this rotation:
So, this week yellow tags are 75% off, green is 50% off, and red is 30% off! What happens to the stuff that doesn’t sell after 75% off (four weeks in the store)? It’s taken to the Goodwill Outlet, which appears to have peaked some of your interest.
Unsold Goodwill treasures to go rest at the Goodwill Outlet, located at 3506 N. El Paso St. (just north of Fillmore). Most everything in the store is $1, though there are some items that are priced a bit more. The Goodwill Outlet is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 AM to 5 PM.
I’ve been to the Goodwill Outlet a few years back when it was on Platte Avenue, and remember that I snagged a wool sweater vest from Nordstrom’s for my four year old for just a buck! There are definitely deals to be had.
If you can’t get enough of Goodwill, be sure to fan them on Facebook, too – they often announce special deals and remind you of the color rotation!
By the way, stay tune for my thrift store review series – next week I’ll be posting a review of the Goodwill store on South Circle.
OH! Wait! I didn’t announce the winner yet, did I? Well, I put all the correct responses together and randomly picked one. The winner was Heather, who said:
Green, red, white, purple and yellow. Favorite purchase- a bassinet. We love shopping there!
Congrats, Heather! I’ll contact you via email soon to get you your certificate. Thanks to everyone who entered and put the effort into their guesses! Hope to see you at a Goodwill soon. :)
