Goodwill Celebrates their new Blue Boutique with a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony
By: Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida
The new upscale boutique, rebranded as blue: A Goodwill Boutique, is located at 2285 First Street at the historic Heitman Building at the corner of First and Jackson in downtown Fort Myers. It offers gently used designer brands, new goods and home décor with the addition of a fine art gallery and an expansive book department.
Fort Myers Mayor Kevin Anderson will attend the event, as well as local historian, Gerry Reaves, who will do a presentation on the history of the Heitman Building and will be doing a book signing. There will also be a local artist doing "live" painting in front of the boutique on First Street.
