Grand Opening – Thursday, September 28th
 
09/07/2017 02:32 PM
Goodwill Industries of Michiana, Inc. announces the Grand Opening of their Griffith Retail Store and Community Career Center at 1601 West 45th Avenue.  The Grand Opening Celebration is planned for Thursday, September 28th with a Clothesline “Ribbon Cutting” Ceremony at 8:30 am.  Customers may begin shopping at 9:00 am when doors open to the public.  “The Griffith Goodwill Store will have an open layout with wide aisles and a large furniture department.  There will be a work area to process Attended Drive-Thru donations so we’ll be able to put the items we receive directly on the sales floor.  We have also included wall graphics to show our guests how their donations help others in the community,” comments Mark Ziegert, Vice President of Retail Sales.
The Community Career Center is a free self-help facility for anyone who would like to learn more about how to find a job - those who are employed, under-employed or un-employed.  Individuals can drop in to work on their resumes, write cover letters and hone their interview skills.  It is not necessary to be enrolled in a government program to use the services provided.  There will also be workshops available at no charge, taught by Goodwill experts and corporate partners.  “The Career Center was developed to serve a need in the Griffith area for an accessible employment resource.  As Goodwill expands, we look at the needs of each community to evaluate what is already available and where there may be gaps in service,” says Debie Coble, President and CEO.  “It offers an opportunity to bring the mission of Goodwill and the retail store operation together.  Our customers can see what their donations and purchases help to facilitate.  And, they can use the Career Center themselves, which is an exciting opportunity,” comments Mark Ziegert, Vice President of Retail Sales.
The first 100 customers arriving on Thursday and the first 50 customers on Friday will receive a 50% Off Discount Coupon.  On Saturday, customers can shop 50% Off with their Good Points Card (free sign up at register).  Debie Coble, President and CEO says, “We’re thrilled to welcome the community into Goodwill’s new Career Center and Retail Store.  Our customers will enjoy the convenience of dropping off their donations at the Drive-Thru, and shopping for affordable merchandise in a bright new space.  Best of all, their purchases and donations help fulfill our mission to strengthen communities by empowering individuals and families through education, training and job placement.”
