The Ultimate Roadtrip: Goodwill North Central Texas

This national thrift shop day, Goodwill is all about getting your thrift on, for a cause!

I mean, Goodwill North Central Texas’ mission is “to CREATE Lives of Independence and BUILD a Stronger Local Community.”

Whether you are on the north or south side of Fort Worth TX, we categorized all of the following locations so you can get the most stops out of your thrift trip from where ever you may reside.

Northeast Fort Worth stores:

  • Denton
  • Golden Triangle
  • GW Boutique
  • Watauga
  • Haltom City
  • Hurst
  • Bedford

Denton, the furthest up north, has plenty of home and wall decor to choose from. If you are ever in need of furniture, Watauga, a Goodwill Super Store, has a special furniture section filled with couches, dressers, tables, etc. Make some time at Hurst, another Super Store with rows upon rows of clothing.

The GW Boutique consists of a large variety of gently used name-brand women’s clothing! Here, you will find authenticated brand-name bags and purses for purchase as well. Unlike other Goodwill stores, the GW Boutique also sells individual jewelry. It’s a perfect spot to squeeze some time for in-between thrift stores if you enjoy designer things.

Northwest Fort Worth stores:

  • Basswood
  • Saginaw
  • Lake Worth
  • White Settlement
  • Camp Bowie
  • Berry
  • Goodwill Outlet

Basswood is Goodwill NCT’s newest store along I-35 north. Closeby and further to the west are Saginaw and Lake Worth which are Super Stores with a lot more options. Then, hop on to 820 and venture towrad I30 where White Settlement and Camp Bowie stores reside. The store on Camp Bowie is also a Super Store and has a whole area dedicated to more decor and furniture. If there’s enough time to head further south and central, Berry and the Goodwill Outlet store make two great last stops.

The Goodwill Outlet isn’t a traditional store. Clothing and decor that you would find in-store are rolled out in blue bins, and sold by the pound! Just $1.59 a pound in fact!

This stop requires more time and patience to dig for treasures, but you will get what you find at the cheapest prices.

Southeast Fort Worth stores:

  • Kennedale
  • Mansfield
  • Cooper
  • Collins
  • Arkansas
  • Lamar

If you are closer to the Arlington area, here’s the road trip map for you. Kennedale carries a lot of toddler and children’s clothing. Cooper and Arkansas are two more Super Stores, with Arkansas dedicating a whole section with rows of home decor.

Another newer store, Collins, carries a lot of children’s items and has bookcases full of books.

Southwest Fort Worth stores:

  • Weatherford
  • Granbury
  • Cleburne
  • Burleson
  • Altamesa
  • Hulen
  • Benbrook

If you’re west of Fort Worth, here’s the perfect map of Goodwill stores for you! Start in the outskirts at Weatherford where you’ll be sure to find unique Western attire. A scenic route south with farms and fields leads you to Granbury and continues to the Cleburne Goodwill store. Heading back toward Fort Worth, you’ll find the Burleson location (another Super Store) which has a larger selection of men’s clothing.

At Altamesa, you’ll be in for a treat with their central display. Upon walking in, mannequins are dressed and posed on stage with donated clothing and other goods! Each holiday and season is sure to bring a new and unique setup.

Altamesa is located south of I-20, so you can make a straight shot west to the last two stores, Hulen and Benbrook.

The last stop of a trip west is at the Goodwill Benbrook store. A small yet fuller store, with nice dishware options, clothing, and shoes.

No matter which store you decide to stop at, 90% of all money earned from all Goodwill North Central Texas locations goes to the nonprofit’s programs and services. Job training and placement programs are offered to anyone in need of help finding a new job, or the education and training needed to make the next move in their career.

And, did you konw that Goodwill Industries is the largest employer of people with disabilities in the world! Map out your thrift trip today and find some treasures while making a real difference in your community.
