Check Out the AJC’s How-To Guide on Thrifting

Goodwill of North Georgia got a shout out from the AJC’s Access Atlanta section in “5 hacks for thrifting Atlanta’s consignment racks” by Sarah Buehrle. There are some great tips in the article, and we are honored to have made the cut!

An additional thrifting tip for our stores includes shopping the discount days. Every Tuesday is Senior Discount Day and we have Thank You Thursdays for service workers, including military personnel, firefighters, police officers and emergency medical services employees. Of course our Color of the Week rotation starts over every Sunday and is available to all shoppers.
