Bon-Ton Goodwill Sale Donates More Than 2M Pounds of Merchandise

Goodwill sale donors and shoppers at The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ: BONT) 267 stores, including Bon-Ton, Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s and Younkers locations, donated clothing, shoes, accessories and other household textiles weighing 2.1 million pounds during the Bon-Ton Goodwill sale last month.

This season’s donations will be sold in Goodwill stores and will generate approximately $10 million in revenue enabling Goodwill to provide 303,000 hours of Goodwill job training and support services throughout the communities where Bon-Ton and Goodwill operate. Customers were encouraged to clean out their closets and bring donation items to their local Goodwill or Bon-Ton Stores location. Donors received coupons up to 25 percent off for every item donated. Customers could also donate $5 to receive three coupons. 

“Donations during the Bon-Ton Goodwill sale will help Goodwill provide critical job training services and support to citizens looking for employment,” said Kim Zimmer, senior vice president and CMO of Goodwill Industries International. “Bon-Ton’s commitment to serving their communities has a positive impact on thousands of people, helping them find jobs and care for their families.” 

The 22-year partnership with Bon-Ton Stores is Goodwill’s longest-running department store collaboration. 

“We are thrilled with the amount of donations we collected from our customers and associates during the spring Bon-Ton Goodwill sale,” said Kathryn Bufano, president and CEO of The Bon-Ton Stores. “At Bon-Ton, we are committed to giving back in every community we serve and we are proud to have made such an impact by helping people find jobs through Goodwill services.”
