Goodwill of Western New York announced that construction is almost complete at its 10,000 sq. ft. expanded and remodeled retail store and donation center in Tonawanda. The expansion adds 3,240 sq. feet to the Colvin-Eggert Plaza location at 3177 Eggert Road where Goodwill has been located since 2009. The store has remained open during remodeling.
The expanded retail store will feature the concept and layout that Goodwill has used in its recent store remodels including signage and displays that better represent the Goodwill brand and mission. Shopper reaction has been positive to the new design and shopping experience. In addition to the retail space, this location will feature a donation center conveniently located at the front of the store. One of the goals of the new design is to encourage donors to come inside the retail space to find new treasures.
“We’re really excited to open this expanded store and donation center,” said Eric Schwarz, Goodwill’s Vice President of Retail & Donated Goods. “We feel we’ve created a shopping and donation experience that is welcoming to everyone and also conveys the Goodwill mission. Donations and purchases help us change people’s lives through the power of work.”
The grand opening of the Tonawanda location is slated for Monday, November 12th beginning with a ribbon cutting at 9:00 am. The public is invited.
