At The GRID: Powered by Goodwill, you’ll find just about anything you can imagine that relates to computers and technology—at Goodwill prices! We carry a diverse variety of new, refurbished and donated products, including desktop and laptop computers, printers, flat screen televisions, audio components, Raspberry Pi, portable chargers, phone and tablet accessories, retro games, gaming consoles and controllers, and more.

Most technology buyers tend to overspend in traditional retail stores. At The GRID: Powered by Goodwill, you can select from a range of Internet-ready computer systems or purchase those hard-to-find individual components—all at discounted prices that reflect a 15%-65% savings from retail markups.

Whether you choose to tinker with a Raspberry Pi, upgrade your television or rediscover retro video games and systems, The GRID has it all for you to experience.

All proceeds from the sale of merchandise help fund Goodwill’s job training and employment programs. Follow us on Twitter for store updates and news.

Complete Systems
Discover an array of refurbished computers in sleek designs that deliver the same fast performance as new computers, but at more affordable prices. Shop and compare refurbished desktop and laptop computers (including PC and Apple) by features like operating system, hard drive size, memory and more.

Video Games
Video game enthusiasts are invited to stop by our lounge area to try out the newest games. The GRID carries a long list of retro games from Odyssey, Coleco and classic Nintendo to Xbox, Playstation and GameCube, plus complete game systems and components. Our stock changes daily, so be sure to stop by often to check out our selection of hundreds of games for every system.

Raspberry Pi
The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized SBC (Single Board Computer) designed to promote the teaching and mastery of basic computer science, especially among children. A versatile computer for both business and educational environments, the Raspberry Pi can be used in electronics projects, and for many of the things that your desktop PC does, such as spreadsheets, word-processing, high-definition videos and games. Buy one of our models and see what projects of your own you can come up with!

We carry a wide selection of hard-to-find internal and external parts including cards, cables, adapters and input devices; accessories such as keyboards, mice and surge protectors, and other peripherals such as printers, speakers, monitors, memory and hard drives.
