On November 8, 2018, we celebrated the opening of our fifteenth Goodwill Store and Donation Center in Plainville. Many shoppers attended the opening, which featured raffle prizes, refreshments and a store packed full of amazing items. One lucky customer won a flat screen TV!
The new 17,000 square foot facility offers an easy and convenient drive-through donation experience as well as a modern, bright and clean Goodwill shopping experience with an ever changing inventory of previously loved clothing, brand name fashions, shoes, accessories, furniture, housewares, and many other items at unbeatable prices. This store strives to offer convenient, “feel-good shopping”, where the proceeds from the store sales are helping individuals right there, in shopper’s own communities. These retail locations also serve as program and training hubs for their clients on the path to lead a more self sufficient and fulfilled life.
The proceeds from the sales of donated items go toward fulfilling our mission to enhance employment, educational, social and recreational opportunities for people with disabilities and other challenges. You can leave with the peace of mind that your donation has gone to help improve the economic self-sufficiency of many people and their families – providing them with a sense of fulfillment and pride.
