GREENSBORO, NC – Spooky season is officially here, and Goodwill Industries of Central North Carolina, Inc. (Triad Goodwill) is ready to help you create the perfect costume for you, your family, and your friends! With hundreds of donations hitting the sales floor each day at their 25 shopping locations in Central North Carolina, there’s no doubt you can find exactly what you need – and at a great price!

“Halloween can be a sneakily expensive holiday,” explains Teresa East, vice president of marketing for Triad Goodwill. “From costumes, to candy, to decorations, it all adds up. But, by being creative and building your costume with finds from Goodwill you can save money- and can have a lot of fun!” In fact, according to a recent national poll, Nearly two-thirds of adults (63%) are more likely to buy materials for DIY Halloween costumes or décor from thrift stores such as Goodwill to reduce costs.

To help our shoppers out this year, all Triad Goodwill locations have a unique Halloween area that is stocked with both donated and new Halloween goods for the whole family. Whether you’re building your full costume with finds from Goodwill, or just looking for final touches like wigs, wands, and wings, you’ll be able to find everything you need with just one stop.

Plus, each store has a “lookbook” filled with ideas, tips, and inspiration to help you build your costume using key pieces you can find at all our stores. Want to be an iconic blonde doll? Grab some pink pants ($4.99) and a pink button up top ($4.99) from Goodwill and finish the look with a cowboy hat and some boots! Is your kiddo dreaming of being a mischievous yellow animated character? Pick up a yellow shirt ($2.99) and some overalls ($2.99) at Goodwill and grab a pair of goggles or glasses from home or DIY your own from upcycled materials! Looking for more costume inspiration?
