Goodwill Industries of Northern Illinois is offering customers curbside pick-up starting Monday, May 18 at two locations – Machesney Park and Crystal Lake – with more locations to be added weekly in response to increased demand for online and curbside shopping due to COVID-19. Shoppers can visit www.goodwillni.org and click on the “GOOD TO GO!” logo on the homepage to enter the online store.
GOOD TO GO! is a new online shop that offers one of a kind donated goods and popular new goods that customers can buy from home and then set-up a convenient curbside pick-up. The site will be kept fresh with new items posted daily for a fun, unique shopping experience that Goodwill shoppers are accustomed to.
“We were looking for ways to engage our shopper since the stores are currently closed,” Ben Bernsten, President of Goodwill Industries of Northern Illinois, said.
Bernsten said they will continue to monitor the success of “GOOD TO GO!” but currently have plans to keep it going past the shutdown due to evolving shopping trends.
Curbside pick up will be available at the Machesney Park location, 8010 N. 2nd Street or the Crystal Lake location, 1016 Central Park Drive at a convenient time set by the customer. More pick-up locations will be added weekly.
