Goodwill relocates Monroe store

Posted: Updated:
MONROE, NC (WBTV) -

Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont has announced the relocation and grand re-opening of its retail store and donation center in Monroe.

The new store, located at 4109 West Highway 74, will open on Saturday, September 21.

Local officials, community leaders and Goodwill representatives will be on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8:30 a.m. The doors will open for shoppers at 9:00 a.m.

Goodwill officials say the new 12,000-square-foot store will feature aesthetic upgrades such as an improved layout, new fixtures to better display merchandise and ease of access for the public to drop off donations.

"Since Goodwill first opened its store in Monroe more than 25 years ago, this community has shown tremendous support for our mission of helping people achieve economic independence and dignity through work," said Michael Elder, President & CEO. "We value our long-term partnership with the City of Monroe in helping turn donations into good jobs, good homes and good neighborhoods."

WBTV has learned that all employees from the existing Monroe store will be transferred to the new location.

"We feel that the increased roadfront visibility offered by the new location will engage even more shoppers and donors from Monroe and the neighboring Indian Trail and Stallings communities, which will benefit the entire area," said Barbara Maida-Stolle, Executive Vice President of Business Enterprises.

"Our retail stores are a true social enterprise. The more you shop or donate at Goodwill, the more job training and placement services we can provide the community."

The new store and donation center hours of operation are Monday – Thursday 9:30 a.m.-9:00 p.m.; Friday – Saturday 9:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m.; and Sunday 12:00-7:00 p.m. Goodwill's existing retail store in Monroe (located at 1213-B Roosevelt Blvd.) will continue to operate through Tuesday, September 17.

This location will be closed once the new store opens; however, Goodwill will continue to operate an Attended Donation Center at this site.
