RHINELANDER - Shopping for clothes can put a dent in your wallet. One store keeps its prices low thanks to the kindness of others.
Most of the clothes on the shelves of Rhinelander's Goodwill were donated by people who simply didn't need them anymore. Those donations help others who can't afford to buy clothes at retail prices. Production team leader Dennis Shimeck is proud to help fulfill a need within the community.
"It makes us feel good because we're offering an opportunity for people," said Shimeck. "Whether it's people who work for us, or it's people who just don't have that extra money to buy something brand new."
As winter draws closer, warm clothes are flying off the shelves. Shimeck says the store could use more of these items.
"This time of year we're definitely looking for winter coats, heavier weight sweaters, long underwear, snow pants, boots, shoes for the kids, things like that," said Shimeck.
Shimeck says the Rhinelander Goodwill could use more men's and children's clothes in particular. You can donate your used clothes and furniture at the drop off location next to the main entrance.
