Goodwill ‘Buy-the-Pound’ Store Opens in Zanesville

Local News

ZANESVILLE, Ohio – A new thrift store is opening in the Zanesville area, with Goodwill officially introducing a ‘Goodwill By-the-Pound Store’ to the community. 

The store was designed to give shoppers an additional look at merchandise at extremely low prices. Bins are arranged in rows, allowing customers to peruse the deals and steals before the row is changed every 30 minutes. By the end of the day, the store will have entirely new merchandise than when it opened, providing bargain hunters literal loads of new items each day.

Dan Hartman, Vice President of the Goodwill Office in Zanesville, shared with WHIZ the enthusiasm the company has for providing shoppers with yet another affordable shopping experience.

“We are focused on Appalachia; we’re focused on people that need an opportunity to work, that may have barriers – that’s one side of us. But also stores like this, that will provide products and things that people need at a fair price. And with this store – it’s a real good deal.”

The store’s grand opening will be Friday and open Monday-Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and is located at 3610 West Pike. Items presented at the bins include anything from apparel to housewares – and will be sold strictly by the product’s weight. Once shoppers are finished, they load their carts on a weigh station, giving them larger quantities of products for lower prices. 

Hartman reminded visitors to stop by, saying, “When you show up – grab a cart, and just start walking around. You will find treasures!”
