I was in your store today and an obviously poor guy must have stole something a lady with a walkie talkie was zeroing in on him. I know stealing is a crime but somehow it struck me as wrong to arrest the very people Goodwill proclaims to want to help. I did warn him before I left. I can only hope that whatever happened turned out best for him.

I really enjoy this store. Have gotten great buys! Like this curio cabinet and lamp (shade is my own). Also my favorite, a 1920's print of a boy and girl, an antique cruet set, an upholstered chair with wood carvings, etc. I just wish they wouldn't close early, or take off for extended periods. But it's still a LOT of fun!
Treated me like I was a thief never do business with these people it's a sad day when an honest customer enters your business and say one thing then try to correct themselves in mid sentence becuse they assume your a you stole somthing.
I have shopped bins with my mom since I was a child and now go with my kids and I've always loved the Milwaukie store such deals on clothing and furniture is priced so well. I was so excited when I saw the new Goodwill closer to my house opening I came early on opening day and the prices were just like the Milwaukie even for furniture. Now few months later Every thing is by the pound even super heavy metal items that should have a price tags. Furniture prices are insane. $250 for a small couch and an outdoor love seat frame WITHOUT cushions for $75, a dresser for $150? The Milwaukee store furniture doesn't go more than around $25 for these items which is the price it should be for an OUTLET. they've got their prices marked as a resale vendor which isn't what they are. You get your items donated for FREE. The reason people go to an OUTLET is because they can't afford the regular goodwill prices (or just can't find a good enough reason to pay the jacked up prices for free donated items) the prices shouldn't be searched online and sold as resale items but as OUTLET prices. Don't go there anymore, I would rather drive an extra 20 mins for the better prices and much happier and friendlier staff.
I don't often get mad, but I'm hopping mad over being treated like a criminal a the Goodwill store on Sixth Street in Portland. Here's what I posted on Yelp: If you buy an electric hair dryer, just be sure to check the price tag before you leave the store to make sure it's up-to-date. I bought a hairdryer earlier today, got home and found it didn't blow hot air, and when I took it back - with the tag still on it and with my receipt - the cashier all but accused me of trying to pull a scam. I was humiliated and made to feel like a criminal.The receipt didn't say "hair dryer," as such but said it the item was purple and cost $7.99. The clerk and a supervisor both said the tag was from 2012 and that there was "no chalk marking code" on the outlet. ??? I kept saying over and over, more and more emphatically, "I bought it today!" and then the clerk glared at me and said "But it's dirty." I responded, "That's how it was on your shelf," and again repeated that I had bought it earlier in the day.Finally another supervisor was called and I was given an in-store refund, but not before being totally embarrassed in front of other customers and made to feel like a criminal.No system is infallible, even though Goodwill obviously thinks theirs is, and certainly not all of their employees are perfect. Somebody made a mistake, but it wasn't me.Do they really think I bought something else that was purple for $7.99, drove all the way home to Gresham, pulled out an old hairdryer I'd bought THREE YEARS before and drove all the way back to 6th Street to pull a scam for eight bucks? These people kept saying they were just doing their job, but they were beyond rude, especially the young cashier. I'll never go back in that store again!
A man that works in the store brown short hair beer belly was very rude his first day of business I had a runny nose due to his dog being around me . Then today Aug 30 I was over at the store In the same shopping strip when I witnessed him yelling at a couple of young men telling tEm to get out his parking lot "really sir you don't even own your store he started to tell me how much of a hero in addict the two guys are when I told him that I really didn't need his opinion due to how rude he was to Me before and I said " you called me a gross person " and this time your response in front of my child was well look you wonder why I called you gross you said look at you . I feel this man needs to shut down shop and go back to the woods
They had a verbal agreement with me to handle my parents estate sale and after a week and a half of waiting to hear when they would do it, they bailed on me. If I had known they would be so unprofessional and dishonest I would have moved on and not wasted so much of my time. Now I'm in town only 10 more days and I'm scrambling to out another plan in place. My disappointment in them and my inability to judge their character has been most upsetting.
It is wild to me what just an hour with a seasoned coach can do for you! Sherry Jordan listened intently to the current questions and challenges I am facing as the owner of a massage therapy practice. Over the course of an hour she was able to help me clarify my short-term and long-term vision for my business. While I appreciate coaching that has a spiritual bent and encourages "manifesting", etc., sometimes you just need practical advice! I deeply appreciated Sherry's willingness to act as consultant. I left our meeting with concrete changes I could implement that day, as well as long term goals and changes to make over time. Very empowering! Sherry's warmth and practicality were so refreshing and helpful! Thank you!
I finally had a chance to meet with Sherry Jordan of Northwest Coaching Group, after having heard her speak at an industry meeting a few months ago. Sherry's office is located in SW Portland and she works with business owners to create business plan to propel a business to the next level. The day I met with Sherry, I was feeling anxious regarding a few up coming decisions I needed to make. So, our meeting started out with me explaining about my business, how I started and then we went into the issues I was dealing with. Sherry did not waste any time getting me to open up and asking questions like “what is the one thing you need right now?” My answer was, “more time.” Sherry asked a few more questions and in my answers came the direction I needed to take to get more time. From there, Sherry helped me set some black and white rules for myself, just a few but rules that are going to make a huge difference in my profit. Increasing my profit margin means adding on another staff member which would help with my time issue. It was wonderful to have someone understand where I was coming from and give me very real, tangible advice and direction. When I left, I had 4 things that once implemented, I would have more time. If you are like me and get caught up in the many hats you wear as a business owner, it's good to have someone who can reign you in and help you to focus on the next step. Sherry was that for me. At the following staff meeting I had with my team, I discussed what I had learned in my first meeting with Sherry and we discussed how we would implement it as a business. I can see that continuing down this path is a way to make small changes add up to large shifts.
Went in to buy boxes. One person working but you can hear several people in the back discussing what they are going to have for lunch the next day. Expect to spend at least an hour in this store waiting no matter what it is you need. They are more concerned with other things than customers.
