Goodwill Fort Worth to Sell Crafts and Supplies to Teachers for Just .49 Cents Per Pound

FORT WORTH, TEXAS (August 6, 2019) – Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth, Inc. announced today that the Goodwill Outlet, located at 4005 Campus Drive in Fort Worth, will host a teacher surplus sale on Saturday, August 10 from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Items will be sold for just .49 cents per pound to teachers with valid ID.
 
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. One row in the store will be exclusive to teachers on the day of the sale, but the discount will apply to anything store-wide.
 
“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.”
 
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.
