Budget-friendly back to school at Goodwill

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) It’s the time of year when back-to-school shopping is at the top of the list for many parents. But it can be overwhelming if you’re on a budget. Goodwill Grand Rapids has ways to save big. You can find gently used and new items on clothing, accessories, and school supplies.

You can find brand names on clothing like Lacoste, Gap, H&M, and Old Navy in sizes from preschool to high school. Goodwill also has new backpacks, shoes, and school supplies. They also stock some items you may not think of, like iPad portfolios and printer cables.

Goodwill also stocks school uniforms at five of their locations.

Proceeds from sales at Goodwill go into job training and placement services for people who have a barrier to employment. You can donate your gently used items at any location.
