Lose the “Back to School Blues” at Goodwill

Blue jeans are a staple of family wardrobes. But new, high-quality jeans are expensive – the average cost of new jeans in the U.S. is up to $56 a pair! For families with young children, the cost of jeans is an extra challenge, since a typical middle school-aged student might change clothing sizes several times during the school year.

Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina is helping ease the cost of shopping for school clothing with its third annual Back to School Blues jeans deal. From Aug. 2 through Aug. 11, all blue jeans will be buy one, get one free (while supplies last) at each of Goodwill’s 49 retail and outlet stores. Click here to find your closest store.

“We wanted to run this special in order to help parents save money as they get their kids ready to start back to school in the fall,” said Pam Anglin, Goodwill’s vice president of marketing and communications. “But we aren’t forgetting the parents! Both children’s and adults’ jeans will be buy one, get one free.”

In Goodwill retail stores, children’s jeans are $2.29 per pair and adult jeans are $4.99. At the Goodwill Outlet Stores in Asheville, Conover and Winston-Salem, all clothing and household items are priced per pound.
