Goodwill® Reopens 17th and Sumner Store as Neighborhood Retail Location
LINCOLN – Goodwill Industries Serving Southeast Nebraska, Inc. recently transitioned the Computer and Electronics Store at 17th and Sumner Streets into a traditional neighborhood retail location.
“Thank you for supporting our Computer and Electronics store since 2011.

Customers can now shop the store to find a variety of unique clothing items and home goods. The location offers monthly sale rotations, including 10 for $10 and $0.99 Clothing Sales.
