Ann Taylor Loft, located in the Abercorn Walk Shopping Center at 5525 Abercorn St. and Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire, Inc. are giving customers a chance to clean out their closets to make room for new spring styles with the “Out with the Old, Save on the New” event. Customers are asked to donate their gently-worn pants at the store and will receive $15 off each full price pant purchase.
The promotion concludes on Sunday. Store hours are Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m and Sunday noon-6 p.m. All donated pants from the partnership will be sold in the 14 area Goodwill retail stores and the revenues will help fund Goodwill job training programs and support services.
“This event offers our clients a wonderful opportunity to give back within their own local communities, while receiving personalized style advice from our in-store experts and a great discount on our new spring pant styles,” said Gary Muto, president of LOFT. “We are delighted to be partnering with Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire, Inc. to help make a difference for families in need, and we believe that our clients will share this excitement and join us in this very relevant event.”
“By participating in the Ann Taylor Loft partnership with Goodwill, people are making an investment in their communities,” said Bill Oakley, president/CEO of Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire, Inc. “Each pant donation will support vital employment services in our community to help people find and keep jobs and will adhere to our mission to assist people with disabilities and other barriers to employment to live independently and become employed.”
Goodwill Industries of the Coastal Empire, Inc. provides job training, employment services, job placement opportunities and post employment support to strengthen communities and families by training people to become independent, tax-paying members of society. Those services include ADVANCE (formerly Second Chance), a community re-entry program for people with acquired brain injury.
