Braved the pre-Christmas Short Pump traffic to check out the newest RVA Goodwill this week
First, where is the Short Pump Goodwill located? At 4200 Tom Leonard Drive, right behind… Tom Leonard’s Farmers Market. (It really doesn’t require much traffic braving to reach because you just turn right at the first traffic light after the ramp from I-64.)
Drive to the back of the parking lot to reach the drive-through donation center. (The parking lot sidewalk doesn’t connect all the way to the drive through, so it might be best to drive through for your donations, if you have them, before parking to shop)
There are two big rooms, the “Home Store” to the right when you enter, with housewares, books, furniture, and electronics:
And the main clothes, shoes, and accessory space:
It’s very spacious, lots of room around the aisles. Pricing is consistent with other area Goodwills ($4.99 for a women’s long-sleeve shirt), and items are sorted by category then color. In the connecting hallway at the back I spotted four dressing rooms, which seems like low capacity for a store this size.
Half-price “color or the week” sales will begin January 18-
