Local Goodwill Store Among Top Performers

Officials with the Goodwill organization say the store in Cookeville is one of the top three performers in the state. Goodwill accepts donations that include clothing, household items, electronics, furniture, books and jewelry to resell to the public in the company's retail stores. Sales overall at Goodwill stores in Middle Tennessee have been up since the economic downturn. One officials says, "What we've found is that people in the past who shied away from shopping at Goodwill have discovered us, and they are sticking around.'' The other two top performing stores, besides the one in Cookeville, are in Clarksville and Madison, Tennessee.
