Today I stopped by the Goodwill today. I have not been in such a long time, there price have gone up. Well to my suprise. they are trying a new promotion. They have inserted different colored plastic tags into their clothes and each week one color is picked coupled with half off. The sale will last for a whole week. Today was the last day for this sale(which was a red tag week). Mayb Good will is starting to come aboard with other Goodwills. Lets hope this last.

That is what ours does all the time. The color tag that is on sale is the one on the things that have been in there for a while.

They do that back home in Ohio and in Washington. They don't do it here in Monterey though, and I don't think they do it in Illinois either. Must be regional.

They do that in CT, too, but it's never the good stuff that's 50% off.

~Our Goodwill started doing this when they moved to a bigger building. Maybe they had so much stuff they needed to keep it flowing out?
Before they offered promotions for $ off on $20 and up purchases. I like the 50% off tags much better.
I've only bought full priced used stuff there a few times. Everything is marked so high! It just stings to spend $10 for used jeans. :/ ~

Our Goodwill also has a certain color tag on 50% off each week. They tag the clothes when they come in with a number week of the year. ie 52 weeks on a year. after something has been then for 4 or 5 weeks it's color tag is 50% off. After that week any in the color are removed from the shelf and sent away.

At my Goodwill they do not separate out the 50% color of the week out from the rest of the clothing so you do see all the newer things while looking for the 50% off deals.

All the goodwill's have been to have done that. I thought it was standard practice. Our St Vincent de Paul's and Value Village also does that.
I love it, especially for kids clothes and toys.

Our Goodwills here (we have three in town) do the same thing - they have two colors of the week - one is 50%, and then the following week, the 50% color is $1 and there is a new 50% off color. Our Goodwills change the colors of the week on Sunday, which is always the busiest day to go. A lot of times I'll wait and go on Monday mornings to avoid the crowds, and I still find lots of good stuff.

The salvation army in town does a similar thing on Wednesdays - on that day every color except the color that they are using that week is 50% off.

I've asked here and GW doesn't do anything. I'm pretty sure that SA does have sales on certain days. They use the color tag system.

we have something like that in Mid Tn. We have the color of the week that is 50% off and changes every sunday. On Wed. the color of the week is .99. On sunday the new color is posted for the week and the old color goes .99 again. I go just about every wed. to see if there is anything I need.
