Did you have a chance to check out our one-week-only pop-up concept store at the EpiCentre last week named “GW”? From Monday, November 30th – Sunday, December 6th, GW was located on Level 2 of the EpiCentre in uptown Charlotte, just in time for holiday shopping, in partnership with Charlotte Center City Partners…and it was unlike any Goodwill you’ve ever seen in the greater Charlotte region before.
GW featured chic, on-trend designer and brand name apparel, jewelry, accessories, shoes and home décor, with high quality items at affordable Goodwill prices, including Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Prada, Coach and more. Prices in the store ranged from $1.99 to $29.99.
GW also offered a tacky Christmas sweater section, free candy bar, gaming zone with video games from our electronics store, The GRID: Powered by Goodwill, and even a “Hipster Santa” who made stops during his busy holiday schedule to take photos with shoppers.
As always, proceeds from purchases at GW and all Goodwill retail stores fund job training and employment services free of charge for individuals in our community overcoming barriers to employment such as lack of skills, experience or education and criminal backgrounds.
Thank you to everyone who helped make GW at the EpiCentre a huge success last week. Thanks to your support and excitement over the store, you’ve got us #WerkinOvertime on the next big plans, so stay tuned!
