Donate apparel at Bon-Ton stores and receive discounts on new fall merchandise
ROCKVILLE, MD — Consumers who want to save on fall fashion — and support a good cause — know that Bon-Ton Stores are the place to shop this season. People who donate clothing, shoes, accessories or other household textiles for Goodwill at any of the Bon-Ton Stores’ 270 locations will receive discount coupons to purchase the newest fall fashions for the entire family as well as home merchandise. The semi-annual Bon-Ton Goodwill Sale will take place from September 16 – October 3, 2015.
Donors will receive coupons of up to 25 percent off merchandise at their local Bon-Ton, Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s or Younkers stores. The special Goodwill donor discount applies to women’s, men’s and children’s apparel; shoes; handbags; home items; and luggage, with 15 percent off on cosmetics and fragrances.
Bon-Ton stores will donate the items collected to Goodwill, where they will be sold in Goodwill stores. Revenues from the sale of those items help fund job training and services in the communities where they are collected, and they help people find jobs and build their careers. In addition, Goodwill uses the funds to provide support services to help people strengthen their families, including free tax preparation, financial education and youth mentoring.
“When you take part in the Bon-Ton Goodwill Sale, you can be certain your donations provide services that help thousands of people who face challenges to finding employment,” said Jim Gibbons, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries International. “Bon-Ton shoppers get great deals on new fall clothing and other items, and Goodwill is better able to support career development programs that help individuals and families.”
This marks the 21st year of the partnership between Goodwill and Bon-Ton. Customers may register for at www.bonton.com for a chance to win a $25 gift card. One lucky winner will receive a $500 shopping spree. See official rules online for details.
“The Goodwill Sale is Bon-Ton’s signature cause-marketing event,” said Kathryn Bufano, president and chief executive officer of The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. “Our customers look forward to this sale because they can get involved by donating to help others and also receive discounts on new fall merchandise.”
