Best Thrift Store/Best Second Hand Clothing Store (2012)
Various locations throughout Monterey County
For more than 110 years, Goodwill has made monumental impacts on the lives of individuals and communities throughout the country. In 2010 the nonprofit became a certified green business, and in 2011 was named a Green Power Partner by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. But Goodwill is also just a really great thrift store where you can find almost anything at a low price. The majority of Goodwill stores carry clothes, toys, furniture, home décor, appliances, dishware and things that simply defy definition. The satisfaction of saving money and shopping at a socially and environmentally sustainable business is a nifty added incentive.
