Customer Appreciation Days

Today and tomorrow, September 17 and 18, are our annual Customer Appreciation Days! This means today and tomorrow you get 50% off red tags at all stores, with the exceptions of our outlet stores and our Ravenna Children’s Bargain store.

We love our customers! We know without shopper and donors like you, we wouldn’t be able to provide the job training and education programs that we do. Without you, there is no Seattle Goodwill. To celebrate our customers, we asked a few Goodwill staff members about how they feel about our customers:

“Our Goodwill customers represent some of the most wonderfully creative people you’ll ever encounter. I am inspired by the recycle, reuse and upcycle abilities we see every day. You’ll meet some of the best bargain hunters and leave with great ideas hanging out with our customers at Seattle Goodwill!”
Suzanne, Vice President of Human Resources


“It’s great to feel the energy from our Goodwill customers – both the new and returning shoppers!  Thank you for supporting Goodwill and our mission!”
Andy, Vice President of Operations



“Many of our customers are repeat customers. They become like family! I appreciate the fact that they love our product and support our mission!”
Arlene, Assistant Manager of our online stores



"Meeting and hearing the stories of the people who use Goodwill's free job training and education, and how it has impacted and changed their lives, makes us work harder, and we would not be able to reach these people without you. Thank you for being part of our mission.”
Israel, District Manager


“Working at our Dearborn location I am lucky enough to have a very diverse customer base. I enjoy talking to all of our customers. I leave everyday feeling like I have learned something new from one of them. Every day is different and exciting and it all has to do with our customers and staff.”
Julie, Manager of our Seattle Store


“I appreciate our customers because without them we couldn’t help our students find jobs and find new educational opportunities. Our customers are an important link in a chain that changes lives.”
Scott, Assistant Manager of our Seattle Job Training and Education Center



“What I appreciate about our South Lake Union customers is their passion and dedication to our store. Being a smaller-sized Goodwill, it’s easy to learn each other’s names and share a little about our lives. It’s wonderful to hear so many kind folks calling out your name throughout the day because they actually care about how you’re doing! It makes this a great place to come to work every day.”
Pamela, Manager of our South Lake Union Store
