Goodwill Anaheim Store Guide | Thrifting & Things To Do

July 29, 2022

Anaheim, California is the hotspot for all things fun in Southern California. Home to a wide range of delectable foods and lavish entertainment, Anaheim is also one of the best places to go thrifting as the city houses three Goodwill of Orange County stores. 

We rounded up our favorite local places to visit the next time you go thrifting at one of our 3 Anaheim #OCGoodwill stores!

📍Goodwill at Town Square: 2090 E. Lincoln Ave.

Anaheim, CA 92806

📍Goodwill on Euclid: 675 N. Euclid Street

Anaheim, CA 92801

📍Rare by Goodwill: 411 W. Broadway C‑H

Anaheim, CA 92805

No. 1 – Anaheim Packing District

Calling upon all food lovers, the Anaheim Packing District is an amazing spot to hangout and explore a variety of different foods. From anti-gravity noodle bowls to cotton-candy covered lemonades, this upscale food court has over 30 different local vendors & bars  which are perfectly compacted in a renovated, historic 1919 citrus‑packing house. There’s even live music from local Orange County artists! On your next OC Goodwill thrifting adventure, be sure to stop by the Packing District for some intricate meals or vibrant desserts!

No. 2 – Downtown Disney District

The second “Happiest Place on Earth” would have to be Downtown Disney District, an outdoor shopping center located at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California — a component of the Disneyland Resort expansion project alongside the Disney California Adventure theme park and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. With a  wide selection of extravagant restaurants, quirky  dessert stands, eccentric bars, and seasonal festivities, Downtown Disney is a great place to hangout with friends or to take that special someone on a date as there is always something to do or something to see.

No. 3 – Joe’s Italian Ice

If you haven’t been to Joe’s Italian Ice, can you really say you’ve been to Anaheim? What started as lemon ice, (known as Water Ice) has been perfected in over sixty flavors. This authentic, homemade, Philly Style Water Ice is enjoyed all year round, but definitely hits the spot on a beautiful summer day after some OC Goodwill thrifting or a trip to Disneyland.

No. 4 – Matiki Island BBQ
Matiki is home to the best Hawaiian barbecue in Anaheim. This simple counter‑service kitchen dishes up hearty combo plates of Hawaiian‑style BBQ & sides. The portion sizes are huge and will leave you completely stuffed yet still wanting more. If you’re craving a nice cup of Dole-whip from Disneyland but don’t want to make the trip, Matiki has you covered with their delicious dupe Dole-whip soft serve that will satisfy your craving.

No. 5 – Okayama Kobo

After a long day of thrifting at our Goodwill of Orange County’s RARE store, Okayama Kobo is the best place to stop for some snacks and refreshments. A place where cuteness meets bread, this awesome Japanese bakery and coffee shop has a wide array of delicate and delicious breads, buns, and croissants. We highly recommend the salt & butter rolls!

📍 155 W. Center Street Promenade Anaheim 92805
