At 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 29th, Goodwill Industries of South Texas officially opened its doors for business at the new location in Portland, TX.
Conveniently located near H-E-B on Wildcat Drive, the store features a wide variety of new & gently used clothing, furnitures, housewares, books and so much more. Additional features include a store front donation station, wireless internet access, and an enhanced Goodwill customer experience.
“Goodwill is very excited about expanding its presence in the Portland community through this new store, says John Owen, President & CEO for Goodwill Industries of South Texas. The Portland community has always been very supportive of Goodwill through their donations of high quality items. Shoppers of the new store will be amazed to find bargain prices on name brand new and gently-used items in the Portland Goodwill store.”
The new store and donation station is open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Sundays from 10:00 a.m. – 6 p.m. Goodwill accepts donations of gently used household goods, furniture, and clothing.
Dan Owen, Vice President of Operations for Goodwill Industries of South Texas adds, “Perhaps the most profound benefit to donating and shopping at Goodwill is the impact that purchases make on the lives of people with disabilities or other barriers to employment.” He continues, “With 95 cents of every dollar going toward Goodwill’s employment and training programs, Goodwill stores and donation stations exist to give people in-need a hand up rather than a hand-out.”
