Goodwill Opening Retail Store, Job Connection Center in Casa Grande
Goodwill Industries of Southern Arizona opens retail store and fifth Job Connection Center in Casa Grande. Doors are open to the public.
Goodwill stores are well known for selling gently used clothing and household items at affordable prices. Sales at the retail stores fund Goodwill’s mission of providing training, services and jobs for people with barriers to employment.
Goodwill created 25 jobs directly with the opening of this new store and will offer free job search assistance at its new Job Connection Center. Centers in Tucson, Benson and Sierra Vista had more than 11,000 visits in the last year. The Job Connection Center is open Monday-Thursday from 9:00am-4:30pm.
Goodwill partner LINKAGES will have an office inside the store as well. LINKAGES works to match people with disabilities with area employers.
The 9,800 square foot store, located at 1325 E. Florence Boulevard (in the Fry’s Shopping Center), is open Monday through Saturday from 8:00am-9:00pm and Sunday from 9:00am-7:00pm. They also accept donations during store hours. With rare exceptions, items donated in Casa Grande will stay in the area to help ensure that donors are helping people in their community.
