Goodwill® Set to Open Eighth Cobb County Store

Goodwill of North Georgia will soon open the doors to its 52nd store location. The new Lower Roswell store, located at 4930 Davidson Road (Marietta, Georgia 30068), includes a drive-up donation center and will open to customers at 9:00 am on Thursday, March 19.
Including the new location, Goodwill operates eight stores in Cobb County alone. The nonprofit also has ten stand-alonedonation centers in the area. “Not only are we growing our Cobb County footprint, but with this new location, we were able to bring nearly 40 new jobs to the community,” says Director of Public Relations Elaine Armstrong. “As an organization focused on job training and employment, we take pride in the fact that we can also create jobs when we grow our business.”
When shoppers enter the Lower Roswell store, they’ll find bright graphics along the walls telling the story of Goodwill’s mission. “Our mission is to put people to work. We do this through a variety of job training programs and employment services. We use the sale of donated goods to fund those activities,” explains Armstrong. Last year, Goodwill helped more than 14,000 individuals find employment across North Georgia.
Beyond the décor, customers will find everything from clothing and shoes to books and jewelry on the sales floor. Those who visit the store during the first four days of business (March 19 – March 22) will have the opportunity to enter hourly drawings for Goodwill gift certificates.
“Whether they’re regular thrift shoppers, treasure hunters or those looking for great bargains, we expect to serve hundreds of customers when we open for business Thursday,” Armstrong adds.
You can learn more about Goodwill of North Georgia by visiting GoodwillNG.org.

5 Easy Tips for Transitioning Your Wardrobe from Winter to Spring

This time of year our favorite stores at The Avenue start teasing us with spring looks. If you are anything like us, we can’t wait to pack away the sweaters and boots in exchange for fun prints and sandals. We like to will it warm with our wardrobes and the good news is, if you follow our five easy tips for transitioning your winter wardrobe into spring looks, you’ll be on track for full-on spring fashion before you know it!

1. Lighten Up - Trade heavy corduroy and tweed fabrics for lighter weight options like linen, cotton and silks. It might be too chilly for bare legs just yet, but a pair of linen pants will make you feel more like spring, while still keeping you warm. Mix and match some of your winter pieces with lighter spring options to get you headed in the right direction.

2. Brighten Up – Winter colors tend to be dull, dark and a little drab. By adding brighter colors into your daily looks with scarves or jewelry, you can gradually take your look from winter to spring.

3. Layer Up – Layers are a good thing, not only to keep you warm, but to add dimension and interest to your daily looks. Start wearing spring tops and dresses now by layering them with cardigans and denim jackets.

4. Sole Switch – Nothing says winter fashion more than boots. It might not be time for sandals just yet, but switching out your winter footwear for ballet flats is the perfect way to take your look from winter to spring.

5. Cosmetic Conversion – Now that your wardrobe is beginning to shift, don’t forget to ditch dark nail polishes for pastel hues and trade in your lipsticks for pretty shades of pink and coral.

While you are shopping for new spring looks, don’t forget to tag your favorite photos taken at The Avenue with #shoptheavenue on InstagramPinterest and Twitter. Fans will be randomly selected at the end of the month to receive a gift card to #shoptheavenue.

Also, don’t forget to enter to win great prizes such as an iPad Air, MacBook Air and designer handbags at http://shoptheavenue.com/avenuegiveaway
