Any items that do not sell in Goodwill stores after four weeks will be offered in the new outlets. Clothes, shoes and linens are sold by the pound – $2.19 per pound under 50 pounds and $1.79 per pound over 50 pounds. Glasses, dishes, electronics and media are sold for $1.19 per pound. Bicycles, blankets, exercise equipment, furniture, and lawn and garden items are individually priced. All sales are final.
