Giving Back to Goodwill® Means Great Savings on Fall Fashions at Bon-Ton Younkers Stores
While New York Fashion Week highlights super-chic trends for the coming year, consumers can update their wardrobes with fabulous fashion finds right now thanks to The Bon-Ton Younkers Stores and Goodwill.
The semi-annual Goodwill Sale, taking place September 19 through October 5, rewards shoppers for donating gently used clothing to any of the 272 Bon-Ton Stores locations. For each donation, donors will receive a coupon to purchase the latest fall fashions at their local Bon-Ton, Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s or Younkers stores. Customers will receive discounts up to 25 percent on nearly everything in the store, such as women’s, men’s and children’s apparel, shoes, handbags, home items, luggage, including 15 percent off cosmetics and fragrances.
Bon-Ton Younkers donates all items received to Goodwill Industries® where they will be sold at Goodwill stores in the communities where they are collected, and the revenues will fund job training and community-based services to help people find jobs and build their careers. Those who donate during the Goodwill Sale can take pride in knowing their donations provide numerous job opportunities for people with disabilities and disadvantages.
