Back to school with WDRB

Goodwill’s Northfield store opened its doors bright and early Tuesday, August 9 for WDRB in the Morning. Featured reporter Keith Kaiser promoted back-to-school shopping at Goodwill!

WDRB’s segment highlighted Goodwill’s money-conscience options for local families. Kaiser mentioned how students of all ages find it important to define their style by shopping for unique items. Luckily for local families, the Northfield store’s racks were stocked with high-quality merchandise such as a Gap Kids, Polo, Under Armor, L.L. Bean, and Nike. For college students, furniture was tagged and ready for a new home. Goodwill stores meet a variety of students’ needs with athletic gear, backpacks, shoes, and accessories.

By back-to-school shopping at Goodwill, students have a wide selection of name brands to choose from, and parents face a lighter cost.

Additionally, by shopping at Goodwill, parents can teach their children valuable lessons regarding the environment and the community. In 2015, Goodwill diverted more than 18 million pounds of items from landfills and placed more than 3,400 Kentuckians into jobs!
