Abilene Goodwill stores giving 'date night' discounts

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - Abilene's Goodwill stores are offering discounts for couples participating in a unique date night idea. 

The idea, which has gone viral following a social media post by Georgia resident Noel Pauley, is simple - couples must go to a Goodwill store with $10 each, pick out each other's outfits, then have a night on the town dressed to the nines in their new duds! 

Goodwill stores all across West Texas, including Abilene, are hopping on board to promote Goodwill Date Nights, offering a 20% discount to couples who come in and fill out a form. 

Goodwill Date Night participants will also be entered into a drawing for a free date night on Goodwill's dime if they post their Goodwill Date Night pictures to social media using #GWTDateNight. One submission will be chosen to win at random and another submission will win for best costume.

Officials told KTAB  and KRBC the contest will be running for about a month! 

Noel and her husband Shane took full advantage of their Goodwill Date Night - even establishing new personas, Roger and Ethel, to match their new attire!

Noel's Goodwill Date Night post went viral in just a few days, garnering nearly 400,000 shares. The Pauley's hope to use this traction to encourage other couples to have a little fun.

Abilene has Goodwill stores at the following locations:

  • 3850 Ridgemont Drive
  • 2200 N. 1st Street
  • 1246 Pine Street
