The semi-annual Goodwill Sale, taking place September 19 through October 5, rewards shoppers for donating gently used clothing to any of the 272 Bon-Ton Stores locations. For each donation, donors will receive a coupon to purchase the latest fall fashions at their local Bon-Ton, Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson's, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's or Younkers stores. Customers will receive discounts up to 25 percent on nearly everything in the store, such as women's, men's and children's apparel, shoes, handbags, home items, luggage, including 15 percent off cosmetics and fragrances.

Bon-Ton donates all items received to Goodwill Industries® where they will be sold at Goodwill stores in the communities where they are collected, and the revenues will fund job training and community-based services to help people find jobs and build their careers. Those who donate during the Goodwill Sale can take pride in knowing their donations provide numerous job opportunities for people with disabilities and disadvantages.

"We're grateful for longstanding partners like the Bon-Ton Stores, which help us bring Goodwill's message to thousands of shoppers and donors," said Jim Gibbons, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries International. "Consumers get great deals at participating Bon-Ton Stores while helping Goodwill fund programs that help individuals and families in their communities."

This marks the 19th year of the partnership between Goodwill and Bon-Ton. Customers may register at for their chance to win a $100 gift card instantly and be entered to win the Grand Prize sweepstakes. One lucky winner will have his or her Bon-Ton card paid off, up to $2,500. See official rules online for details. In addition to job training and career development programs, Goodwill also provides support services to help people strengthen their families, including free tax preparation, financial education and youth mentoring.
