Two New Stores Open in Virginia This Month!

By Megan Wilson on Feb 13, 2017

Two New Locations to Shop for Your Favorite Goodwill items

Store Manager Tammy McCain and Assistant Store Manager Kim Pearson have been hard at work bringing Central Virginia’s 17th Goodwill store to life.

“Everything you see here in the store,” Tammy said, “We built it.”

Tammy has been leading a team of 15 at the store who have been there since January 18. At least 70 percent of those employees were new hires, says Tammy.

“That’s what were all about–jobs,” she said.

Trucks of donations have been coming in daily to deliver items. They’ve been working to organize goods to make it feel comparable to shopping at other retail stores like Macy’s. Tammy thinks the store might have one of the area’s largest home goods sections. If you’re ready to organize your house this spring, this is the store to shop! Don’t forget to read last month’s blog post full of organization tips from a local professional organizer.
