BUFFALO, N.Y. — Goodwill of Western New York announced that construction is almost complete at its new retail store and donation center in the I-190 Plaza, 6530 Niagara Falls Boulevard in Niagara Falls, NY near the Factory Outlet Mall. The 11,000 square foot store and donation center is Goodwill of Western New York’s twelfth location and its first in Niagara Falls. The store will employ 15 staff members.
In addition to retail space, the Niagara Falls location will feature a conveniently located drive up donation center where donors can drop off their gently used clothing and merchandise.
