NEW AND IMPROVED GOODWILL “IN STORE” FOR SUFFOLK
SUFFOLK, VA – A new Goodwill retail store and donation center will open its doors in Suffolk on Thursday, September 24th at 9 a.m. The newly constructed store will serve as the relocation site for the Goodwill currently located at 940 North Main Street, in downtown Suffolk.
The new 15,000+ square foot Goodwill is located at 2901 Godwin Boulevard in Suffolk, across from Sentara Obici Hospital. Shoppers will find a bigger, brighter store full of merchandise that includes clothing for the whole family, electronics, toys, books, house wares, furniture, and unique home accents. Donors will also find a more convenient drive-thru donation center for dropping off their gently-used items. Store and donation hours will be Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Goodwill’s stores fund its mission of providing job skills training and career development to help individuals overcome obstacles to employment. The stores also provide on-the-job-training and often permanent job placement for Goodwill’s clients. Part of Goodwill’s mission services includes the operation of a Community Employment Center in Portsmouth, where 150+ job seekers are helped every month.
Visitors to this new Suffolk Goodwill will find a store that is a cut above the thrift store stereotype, like:
- A well-appointed store with a traditional retail atmosphere, knowledgeable sales staff, our return policy, and our frequent donor discount shopping program.
- Competitive pricing with the average cost for adult clothing at $4.99.
- Well organized, ever-changing merchandise as Goodwill re-stocks with at least 1,800 new items every day.
- Great giveaways and door prizes during the first 3 days of the store opening.
