This is a complaint about ALL the Goodwill stores in the Tallahassee area. They just need to change their name to Greedwill. I used to spend alot of money in these stores and be satisfied, even thrilled with the good deals. Not so any more. In the past few years their prices have risen dramatically. It is not uncommon to find items priced above retail. Often they place chipped, cracked or broken items out for sale with equally ridiculous prices. The local 'ceo' has stated in writing that Goodwills' purpose is not to provide good prices but jobs, training etc. This insulting letter he wrote was in response to all the complaints lodged about the prices and it used to be posted at the cash registers but I guess they lost their nerve because they took the stupid letter down. They have forgotten that part of being a socially conscious member of the local community involves respect. They don't respect the shoppers who are often poor or struggling financially. I am a single mother who shopped goodwill for years but I don't any longer; at least not locally here in Tallahassee. I am sick of their attitude and their greed.

thank god i found this site and thank god i am not the only one who notice how pricey their items are it is a shame how they price the items good will is getting over on poor people , the stuff is donated so people who are struggling can afford it ,but we still can;t . The people behind good will are greedy and selfish selling used things at brand new prices. I think they should change the name to something else i think people should donate more to salvation army instead i get upset every time i go in to good will the people need to spend their money somewhere else they might as well just go to wal- mart. a child's used book cost 2 dollars or more used pots and pans 5 dollars and they also sale those cars for to much who are they really trying to help because it is sure not the people
