Goodwill is following the concept store trend, opening Gina + Will in Dinkytown over the weekend.

The store, located at the Venue at Dinkytown on 5th Street, takes merchandise donated to the organization and picks out the styles and brands that appeal to the college market.

Patrons can shops brands like 7 for all Mankind, Free People, and True Religion, and even post pictures of themselves trying on the outfits on Gina + Will's "Selfie Wall."

Thrift stores are popular among college-age people who are looking for vintage clothes or want to save money by using the discounts offered by second-hand stores.

Target also introduced a concept store, TargetExpress, which is also housed in the Venue at Dinkytown.
