Goodwill does alot of good work around the world, but their stores are overpriced now. $9 for a shirt you could buy new for $5. The store in Livermore collects alot of really nice stuff from Livermore, but then puts all the nice stuff on a truck to take elsewhere and even auctions some stuff online. If you look at what's at other thrift stores in the area, they have alot more nicer stuff. The 'wares' are especially bad at Goodwill, with rarely ever anything good or worth the price.
