Check out these Glitter Sale Frequently Asked Questions and Shopping Tips!
How does the customer service number system work?
Everyone gets a number! This year we will be repeating, on both sale days, our numbering system so that customers do not need to stand in line for prolonged periods of time. The minute you arrive at the sale, go to the table outside the store to get your number. The number doubles as your entrance to the sale AND your number to access the jewelry counter.
How will customers be notified that their number has been called?
Frequent announcements will be made over the store PA system. Customers can also sign up to receive text messaging to track what number is being served. Please text keyword "Goodwill123" to 91011.
Once my number is called, how long do I have to get into the Glitter Sale?
Once your number is called, you may enter the Glitter Sale at any time.
I am bringing my child with me to the sale. Do they also need a number on Saturday?
