News - - .....Twenty years ago, long before most of us had ever heard of CSR, let alone made it part of our standard practices, the local Boston Store in Milwaukee, WI, now owned by The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. began a partnership with Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Wisconsin. Through this partnership, Boston Store gave coupons to customers who donated clothing and textiles to benefit the Milwaukee Goodwill. The coupons could be used for significant discounts at Boston Store. The idea was solid:

• It engaged consumers in a campaign that helps others in their own community by supporting Goodwill's local job training programs.
• It was easy to participate-- just round up a few items from your closet that you no longer use and bring them to the store.
• It offered a significant reward for the person taking part -- discount shopping!....
