Goodwill

Goodwill is a great place to go for secondhand clothing, home furnishings, kitchenware and small appliances. The Boston/Roxbury store is the largest in the area, but all of the other locations have a lot to offer, too! Donations are accepted at all locations.


Boston/Roxbury

The Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries in Roxbury is so huge that it feels like a shopping mall for secondhand goods. They mostly sell clothing, but there are a few home goods, furniture and books near the back of the store.

There are several aisles of clothing for women, children and men. The clothing is pretty well organized by sleeve length and color so it’s easy to find what category of clothing item you’re looking for.

The back of the store has home goods like dishes, small appliances, food containers, pots, pans, bakeware and other odds and ends.


There’s a section filled with books and old records.


They have small appliances like fans, printers, speakers and vacuums. I have also found small lamps and furniture at this store in the past. If you’re looking for something specific you may need to visit a few times if they don’t have it the first time.

This store usually has a few pieces of furniture and some linens.
