A Curated by Goodwill Upper West Side shop just opened at 217 West 79th Street. The new shop is a trendier version of the original Goodwill store, with clothing items curated by a rotating list of featured stylists. Items are also slightly pricier, but still affordable.
The concept came from four FIT students as part of a Goodwill contest to create shopping experiences a bit more relevant to today’s consumers. The students were awarded $10,000.
Proceeds from donated clothing will go toward programs for the unemployed and disabled, just like their other stores.
Here’s a quote from the CEO of Goodwill of NY and NJ:
“We designed Curated as a distinct shopping experience to introduce shoppers concerned with the waste and pollution that fast fashion causes, to a stylish, affordable alternative. Because Curated is part of Goodwill, conscious shoppers triple their impact. Their purchases create jobs locally, result in positive environmental outcomes for the global community, and they find unique pieces that keep New Yorkers ahead of the trends.”
