Goodwill Debuts Clearance Store on April 16
First-of-its-kind Clearance Store to be at Cheyenne & MLK

Less than a week before Earth Day, Goodwill of Southern Nevada will introduce a new concept to Valley thrift shoppers by turning its existing Cheyenne Goodwill Retail Store at 1280 W. Cheyenne Avenue in North Las Vegas (Cheyenne & MLK) into a Clearance Store, allowing customers to have one more chance to repurpose or recycle by purchasing gently used goods by the pound or piece.

Here’s how it works: instead of a traditional shopping experience, shoppers will fill their shopping cart with donated goods from tables full of merchandise that have been rotated out of Goodwill’s nine other existing retail stores. At check out, the carts will be placed on a scale and customers will be charged for the items according to weight or quantity.

Clothing and other textiles will sell for $1.39 per pound, while hard goods such as kitchenware, toys and small electronics will be priced at $0.79 per pound. Shoes, books and large items such as furniture, televisions and bicycles will be individually priced at deeply discounted rates.

Merchandise in the Cheyenne Clearance Store will be constantly rotated throughout the day, providing fresh merchandise for shoppers.

“Our local Goodwill kept 17 million pounds of goods out of local landfills last year,” said Steve Chartrand, Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s President & CEO. “The addition of this new Cheyenne Clearance Store will increase that number. But more importantly, by giving donated items new life, shoppers will help us change lives.”

Like all Goodwill stores, revenue from the Cheyenne Clearance Store funds local job placement and training programs and is just one more way that Goodwill maximizes the value of donated goods it receives. Last year, Goodwill of Southern Nevada helped a record 1,800 people find employment.

To prepare for the change to a Clearance Store, the existing Cheyenne Goodwill Store will hold a blow out sale on Wednesday, April 10 from 9am to 9pm with all items 50% off. Traditional retail shoppers are encouraged to shop at the Goodwill Retail Store at Craig/Decatur, only 4 miles away.

The Cheyenne Goodwill Clearance Store at 1280 W. Cheyenne Avenue (Cheyenne & MLK) will open to customers at 9am on Tuesday, April 16. Earth Day is Monday, April 22.

Cheyenne Goodwill Clearance Store Hours: 9am to 5:30pm, Monday thru Sunday.
Store phone number: 702-214-2008
