Shopping & Donation Guidelines

June 2, 2020

Goodwill Industries of Greater Cleveland and East Central Ohio has reopened all retail stores with normal operating hours (M-Sat 9am-8pm, Sun 11am-7pm and Outlet M-Sun 9am-6:30pm). Find a location near you.

The Shaker Heights store will not reopen. Instead, the staff from this location will be offered positions at surrounding Goodwill stores and/or at the new, nearby University Heights location which is slated to open later in 2020.

Goodwill has taken steps to ensure the safety of employees, customers and donors by implementing the State of Ohio and West Virgnia’s business reopening plan along with recommendations from the CDC and other health organizations.


Steps taken to ensure safety in retail stores include:

  • Shields at all cash registers
  • 6-foot social distancing throughout the store
  • One-way aisles
  • Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of hard surfaces and carts
  • All employees wearing masks
  • For the safety of our employees and other customers, Goodwill requires customers to wear masks or face coverings while shopping in the stores.
    *Exceptions are made only for customers with health conditions or children two years of age or younger.
  • Special shopping hour for seniors and at-risk customers available at all locations, Tuesdays 9-10am

The color tag sales will be temporarily suspended. Good Points rewards will be honored. 


At each of our locations, Goodwill is accepting donations safely and responsibly.

  • If needed please ask an assoicate for help placing donations in designated bins.
  • Donors are asked to not unload their donations while another donor is unloading their items. 
  • Donors are requested to wait in their car until others are finished and have pulled away. 
  • Receipts for donations given during this time can be found here.
  • All donations will be stored for a minimum of 24 hours before being sorted and placed on the sales floor.

*There is no home pickup service available for donations.
