Goodwill of Middle Tennessee

Goodwill’s longtime retail store at 1596 Fort Campbell Blvd. will be converted into an outlet selling all clothing and home goods for 99 cents.

The facility, which opened in 1996 and is one of three Goodwill stores in Clarksville, will make the change on Monday, Jan. 1. Goodwill already has a 99 cent outlet in Hendersonville and another outlet that sells merchandise by the pound in Nashville.

“Our 99 cent outlet in Hendersonville has been extremely successful. Because of the overwhelmingly positive feedback from our shoppers, we have been looking for opportunities to add a second one,” Goodwill’s President and CEO Matthew Bourlakas said. “In Clarksville, where we have three retail stores in close proximity, it made sense to convert one into a 99 cent outlet.

“At the new outlet, we will have tons of clothing and home goods on the sales floor, with every item priced at just 99 cents — all day every day. Merchandise will be refreshed regularly to keep shoppers coming back often,” he added.

Goodwill’s outlets provide a “second chance” for merchandise that does not sell quickly in its more than 30 retail stores or on its auction website, onlinegoodwill.com. The operations help ensure Goodwill is the best possible steward of donated goods, preventing millions of pounds of useful items from going to landfills.

All purchases from Goodwill benefit its mission of changing lives through education, training and employment.

Hours at the new Goodwill 99 cent outlet will be 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday and noon-6 p.m. Sunday. The site’s Goodwill Donation Express Center will remain open and follow the same schedule, except it will open at 8 a.m. on weekdays. The 99 cent outlet’s phone number is (931) 645-2310.
