Goodwill® Announces Grand Opening of New Apples Way Store
Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska, Inc. is hosting a Grand Opening celebration for a new Retail and Donation Center at 6300 Apples Way Friday, September 19th and through Sunday, September 21st. The Lincoln Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a Ribbon Cutting at 9 am on September 19th.
Throughout the weekend, customers will be given the opportunity to register for prizes including many donated by other businesses in the Apples Way shopping center. Some of the prizes include a charcoal smoker grill, fire pit, and gift certificates from Texas Roadhouse, Graham Tire, Sportsman’s Haircut, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, and Jimmy Johns.
The new store at Apples Way will replace the retail and donation center at the Edgewood Shopping Center, which has been at that location for over 20 years. As the smallest of all of Lincoln’s Goodwill locations, the agency outgrew the space at Edgewood and was in need of a solution to meet the growing demands of customers and donors alike. “It is difficult to close a store that has been a part of southeast Lincoln for so long. The Edgewood store has very loyal customers and donors, and we think they will enjoy the improvements we are able to bring to Apples Way” said Joanne Pickrel, CEO of Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska, Inc.
The Apples Way store is about triple the size of the Edgewood location and is the largest Goodwill retail and donation center in Lincoln. One of the aforementioned improvements is a covered donation drive thru which will make dropping off donations even more convenient for donors.
The Goodwill Retail and Donation Center at Edgewood will close its doors at the end of September. For more information, visit www.lincolngoodwill.org.
