Thrift shoppers will soon have another Goodwill location to add to their hit lists: Huntersville.
The retail store and donation center, which is located at 14420 N. Statesville Road in Huntersville, is the organization’s 22nd site in the region. A grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 8 beginning at 9 a.m.
The Huntersville Goodwill will employ 20-25 team members and generate approximately $500,000 in wages and sales taxes paid per year, in addition to providing a convenient donation option for Huntersville residents. This is the organization’s second location to open in 2012 – in January, Goodwill opened a retail store in Ballantyne with record-breaking sales.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 8:30 a.m., followed by music and giveaways from 9:00 a.m. until noon. Doors will open to the public at 9 a.m. and shoppers will have several chances to win a $250 US Airways gift card.
Normal store hours will be Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday from noon until 7 p.m.
Proceeds from the sale of donated items at Goodwill’s retail stores fund the organization’s job training and employment programs that assist thousands in the Southern Piedmont region each year. Ninety cents of every dollar spent at Goodwill assist with funding these programs.
