Have you noticed the new Goodwill Store at the former location of Crofton Library, in Crofton Centre?
A sign outside the store reads, “Come in and check us out. You won't believe what you can find! We're not your Grandmother's GOODWILL.”
You'll still find donated items such as clothing, baby equipment, and home furnishing for sale, but the items are showcased with a flair that's new and fresh.
Store manager Rob Rannebreger told Crofton Patch the community has been very generous with donations since the store opened last month, both in quantity and quality. During my recent tour of the store, I even saw clothing with original price tags still attached from stores such as Ann Taylor, Macy's and Kids R Us.
This is the perfect place for grandparents to pick up a Pack-n-Play or toys to have on hand when the family comes to visit, or perhaps you can find some picnic-ware for your next backyard cookout. If you have a house full of growing kids, it makes sense to check out their clothing before you head to the mall.
Donations may be dropped off at the back of the Crofton Goodwill Store, located at 1657 Crofton Centre, Crofton, MD. Don't forget to wait for a dated receipt to attach to your itemized list of donations; you'll need it to claim your deduction at tax time next year.
P.S. Don't wait 'til you're getting ready to move to clean out those over-stuffed closets... with this new Goodwill Super Store so close for donating those outdated items, you have no more excuses.
