Goodwill Cuts Ribbon on New Greenville Store, Donation Center
GREENVILLE, Pa. – Youngstown Area Goodwill Industries’ new site in Greenville, Pa., will allow the organization to expand its workforce initiatives into the area.
“We look forward to eventually utilizing part of the space to further serve the area and provide valuable training and resources that some individuals may need to seek employment.” CEO Mark Goloja said in a statement. “For now, we are focused on the retail side, but are very optimistic about the potential.”
The store, at 25 Williamson Road in Greenville, has 20,000 square feet of space, making it one of the largest in Youngstown Area Goodwill’s network. A ribbon cutting for the store was held Tuesday.
In addition to its selection of clothing, housewares, furniture, books and more, the site also has a donation center. The revenue from sales supports Goodwil’s workforce development programs and services.
“This great community has really supported us, and we are here to support them as well,” he said. “We are very happy to be here and look forward to a long, successful journey in Greenville.”
The store opened Jan. 28 and had one of the best opening weekends in the local Goodwill’s history, Goloja said.
Goodwill Greenville is open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
