Good news for deal-hunting label lovers in OC: Goodwill is going the way of Buffalo Exchange. The non-profit org opened a designer-filled boutique in Huntington Beach, part of its expansion plan to roll out cool concept stores nationwide.
The OC Goodwill Boutique boasts fancy interiors and stocks higher-end inventory similar to merch at department store discount shops—Stuart Weitzman, 7 For All Mankind, and Ted Baker are just a few names recently spotted on the racks, notes the LA Times. The pub notes that it's the fourth LA shop to open in SoCal; Tustin scored Goodwill's first luxury thrift shop (which offers names like Chanel, Prada, and Burberry) three years ago and downtown Anaheim is home to an Urban Outfitters-esque RARE shop, complete with a vinyl listening station.
No word yet on whether LA-area boutiques are in the works; given that Goodwill has been treating us to major sales at its Atwater Village flagship, let's cross our fingers that its swankified shops land locally soon.
