Herberger's is seeking Acts of Goodwill during the semiannual Goodwill Sale event Sept. 16-29.
The retail trade-in promotion is a collaboration between The Bon-Ton Stores Inc. (the parent company of Herberger's) and Goodwill Industries. Consumers who donate clean, gently used clothing and home textiles at Herberger's locations will receive a coupon for every item they donate. Herberger's in Bemidji is located at Paul Bunyan Mall.
The coupon will be good at Herberger's for 20 percent off on apparel, shoes and accessories merchandise and 15 percent off on cosmetics, fragrances and home store merchandise. This year, with more job seekers seeking help than ever before, there is an increase in demand. Goodwill needs more donations to fund the services it provides and the Goodwill Sale generates millions of pounds of clothing donations that are sold in more than 2,300 Goodwill stores. The revenue from the donations goes toward job training programs, employment placement services and other community programs for people who need it most in local communities.
Herberger's is seeking a million people to support this mission by donating and registering their commitment on millionactsofgoodwill.com. In exchange for their support, consumers will receive a 25 percent off in-store coupon and a chance to instantly win a $100 shopping spree instantly. Now through Sept. 29, registered consumers will also be entered into a grand-prize sweepstakes for a trip for two to Los Angeles and a tour of Universal Studios.
