PRLog (Press Release) - Aug. 24, 2012 - Naples – Naples bibliophiles will soon have a new book store to peruse. On September 7th, Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. will open a Donation Center & Book Store (1795 9th Street N- on Tamiami Trail across from the Coastland Center), which will mark the company’s 26th retail location.

The Naples Donation Center & Book Store will be Goodwill’s second book store. The first opened in Fort Myers in October 2010. “Our Fort Myers location was so successful. People always ask us when we are opening another book store,” says Kirsten O’Donnell, Goodwill’s Director of Public Relations. “We knew Naples would be a great spot to open our second location.”

In addition to selling books, the store will also offer gently-used media such as DVDs and CDs, as well as related new items like reading glasses, bookmarks.  Some home décor items will also be available at the new book store.

The 3,045 square foot building utilizes greener construction elements including thermal insulation, windows and doors to properly seal the building and eliminate air leakage, native plant species throughout the landscaping, and energy efficient interior light fixtures. It also features a convenient donation drive-up donation drop-off, so donors never have to even get out of their cars to donate! The Donation Center & Book Store will accept donations of all items- clothing, books, household items, and furniture.

The Naples Goodwill Donation Center & Book Store, grand opening will take place Friday, September 7th, with a ribbon cutting at 8:45 a.m. The store will open to the public at 9 a.m.

The store’s normal operating hours will be 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Sunday.
