MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Goodwill, located at 9315 State Ave., will open its doors one hour early, at 8 a.m. on Aug. 13-14, to accommodate the larger numbers of expected shoppers for its ninth annual “Western Days” sale.

David Sandler, spokesperson for the Seattle Goodwill, explained that the sale has grown increasingly popular over the years, as customers from all across the region, and even other states, have come to browse through Goodwill’s selection of western wear and merchandise.

Throughout the year, Goodwill collects many western-themed items, donated by people in the community, including a huge selection of cowboy hats and boots, belts and buckles, jewelry and furniture, and many other products, and sells them. Several horse saddles are also available this year. Both days will include a silent auction of select items. On Aug. 14, a country honky-tonk band from Bellingham, called “Hoss,” will put on a free show in front of the store, as they did during last year’s “Western Days.”

The net proceeds from the “Western Days” sale supports Goodwill’s free job training and education programs that help low-income and under-served people in the community find work and support their families.

“It’s our busiest day of the year,” Marysville Goodwill Store Manager Duane Bredin said. “This sale is really a big draw because people know they can outfit themselves in great western gear at prices they can afford. What’s more, people are supporting Goodwill’s beneficial programs by shopping at the sale.”
