Shriek-onomics: Halloween gives Goodwill a sales boost

Oct 21, 2015

The approaching Halloween holiday means big business for Goodwill stores, locally and nationally. And, it seems more people are flocking to the second hand stores for costume options.  

Goodwill of Central Illinois spokesperson Scott Jenkins says stores have already seen a 20 percent spike in sales compared to this time last year.  

Jenkins attributes the spike to the growing trend of shoppers heading to Goodwill stores for creative, do-it-yourself Halloween costumes that won’t break the bank.
