PRLog - May 16, 2014 - PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. is celebrating the grand opening of a new Goodwill Retail & Donation Center in Port Charlotte on May 22, 2014.  The store, which is located at 24051 Peachland Blvd., will open its doors for business at 9:00 a.m., immediately following an 8:45 a.m. ribbon cutting.

“The second Goodwill location, off of Kings Highway, will be more convenient for our shoppers who are closer to 75 in Port Charlotte,” says Martin Kidder, the store’s district director. “Also, the revenue generated in our stores supports our programs and services so expanding our store locations will allow us to serve more people.”

The expansion of a new store created 24 new jobs for the organization including several supervisor positions.

“We are committed to serving the Port Charlotte community,” says Kidder. “This store will assist in that.”

Attendees of the opening weekend (May 22-25) can enter for a chance to win an iPod Nano. A total of four winners will be chosen.

Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. is committed to assisting people with disabilities and disadvantages by providing life-changing opportunities to achieve independence.  Revenue generated at Goodwill’s 30 Retail & Donation Centers supports Job-Link centers, income-sensitive housing for senior citizens and people with disabilities, the SWFL MicroEnterprise project, the L.I.F.E. Academy charter school, and other programs.  For store locations and more information about Goodwill’s mission visit www.goodwillswfl.org.
