Goodwill in Davis is occupying the space where All Things Right and Relevant and the Wash Mill used to be. The Wash Mill was forced to close in January 2013 when the landlord would not renew their lease because Goodwill wanted their space. Some find it ironic that a company dedicated to helping lower-income people would deprive East Davis of its only laundromat, given that many people walked to the Wash Mill. The Vanguard wrote three articles on the subject. (here, here, and here). The Davis Enterprise published an editorial by Meg Sloss, in which she states, "shame on you to the landlord of the Manor and the CEOs of the Goodwill. They both have given into greed and selfishness at the expense of their customers and another business owner." Quite a few folks are planning to boycott this store.
*The Goodwill "Donation Location" in the El Macero Shopping Center looks pretty dead every time I go by (two-four times a week to shop at Nugget); based on an editorial by Meg Sloss and talking to the former owners of Wash Mill the day they received their eviction notice from "Goodwill," I'd recommend donating at ASPCA on Third Street instead http://www.yolospca.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=51&Itemid=76. Their website says they need donations, which won't fund demolition of a mom and pop laundromat!! —BrianKenyon

West Sacramento A new Goodwill opened in West Sacramento near the corner of Harbor and West Capital Ave. It's got a TON of great stuff, but at Goodwill prices (those being set pricing that is more expensive than some thrift stores...for instance, all jeans are $4, all dresses are $5. This store is significantly larger than the one in Woodland and has a much better selection. It has tons of printers, appliances, sporting goods, etc.
2011-06-19 10:40:44 This place is pretty great. I hit two birds with one stone by donating and getting rid of my e-waste when I moved (vs having to go to the landfill and another donation site). The girl working there was very nice and helped get all my stuff inside. —equitonic
2013-07-26 15:05:55 IIm voting with my dollars (or not, in this case) and haven't shopped in this shopping center since finding out about the lease atrocity. Shame! I didn't use the laundromat but small business is being pushed aside all over. Pretty soon we won't have any small, interesting, independent shops. Sad. —KatyMartin
"2013-10-12 18:16:55" Oh my god, this place is soooooooooooo good for Halloween! They had tons of stuff! Extremely cheap costumes! Those "costumes in a bag" you normally get for $65 at a Halloween store? $20 here. They mix in the regular Goodwill clothes that could work for costumes in with the "storebought" stuff. TONS of things. Wigs. Masks. Makeup. Hats. I found corsets for $5 and $10 and leather jackets and pants ranging from $5 to $20. Really good deals and shopping here—especially since we don't seem to have a Halloween store in Davis in 2013. Excellent haul! —JenniferRutherford
2014-06-23 15:21:27 This is regarding the Davis location. The Woodland location was shut down months ago. The Davis location is a cluttered mess with outrageous prices and limited selection. The prices are comparable to what you would see at the nearby TJ Maxx or Target. Save your money and go to the other thrift stores in town or by new. —nkristis
2024-02-19 15:14:07 I worked at this store for about 6 months in 2015. It was the most abusive job I have ever had in my life, and it left me with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. People would constantly get into racist arguments, then ignore that I am black and didn't care how I felt about it. People said the N-word around me several times. There was open sexual harassment. One of the managers was a white woman, Noisha Rhodes AKA Noisha Curry AKA Theo Curry, who tried to blame me for racism because of an item that was donated that was made for black people, and was not racist, then she tried to tell people I was a pedophile because she overheard an awkward conversation that was not about sex. She would yell at me from behind while I was in the middle of working on things to surprise me. She had slept with the other black man who worked there, who openly sexually harassed everyone. He would hit on coworkers and customers even if he knew they did not want him to flirt with them. His name is Artavius Galloway. He hated me because I am a black man who is more light skinned than he is, then he got fired for sexually harassing a white woman by touching her on her face and in her hair when she was much younger than him. One worker there would stay out partying and drinking liquor all night then come in to the store still drunk, and one time she danced up to my friend and touched him in the crotch, and he had to report her to the management. The management knew these things were happening and did very little to try to stop it. I will never forgive these people, even the general manager Mary Helen took sides with the people who were doing this. —averykirkland
