Rockville, MD (PRWEB) March 06, 2013

Goodwill Industries International and Goodwill Industries of Central Texas (Austin) are hosting their first pop-up retail shop, POP! The brand, Goodwill, has been around for 110 years, but in recent years has revamped its retail strategy to include boutiques, trunk shows and other venues that appeal to a younger audience. During the POP! shop, consumers will be able to choose from a selection of unique items, including vintage and contemporary fashions and accessories, and designer labels. Revenue generated from the shop will help put people to work in Austin.

The shop itself will operate from March 9-11, 10 a.m. 7 p.m. at 315 Congress Ave. Austin, TX 78701. All the merchandise featured in the shop was donated at Goodwill locations in the Austin area, and especially selected for the sale.

The pop-up shop is an exciting opportunity to reach out to SXSW attendees to give them a unique shopping experience, along with an education about Goodwills mission of job training and the impact that shopping can have on people in their communities, said Jim Gibbons, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries International. In addition, the pop-up shop will showcase the type of quality vintage and contemporary fashions, apparel and accessories available at Goodwill stores not only in Austin, but around the country.

Along with great bargains, shoppers will have the opportunity to interact with Goodwills spokespeople, including Evette Rios, star of ABCs The Chew and Univisions Despierta America, and Austin resident Lorie Marrero, Certified Professional Organizer
