Palm Beach Goodwill Back by Popular Demand

By: Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida
 
FORT MYERS, Fla. - Nov. 5, 2021 - PRLog -- Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida (SWFL) converted the existing Palm Beach Goodwill, located at 4162 Palm Beach Blvd., into a 99 cent store in October 2020. The Goodwill 99 Store offered shoppers an entire inventory of merchandise for only $0.99 per item in an effort to provide an array of low-cost merchandise to assist low-income families in the community. It was also expected that the increase in foot-traffic through the retail store would encourage additional visitors to the onsite Community Resource Center, where people can receive free assistance in job training and upskilling. But, the demand from the community for a traditional Goodwill in the area was clear.

"Our customers have told us that, although they liked the 99 cent store concept, they wanted to get a traditional Goodwill store back into their neighborhood.  They spoke and we listened," said John Nadeau, President and CEO of Goodwill of Southwest Florida.

In response, Goodwill SWFL is converting the 99 cent store back to a traditional Goodwill just in time for their annual Black Friday sale. Doors open at 8am on November 26th with 50% off all donated and 20% off new goods - including mattresses. Shoppers will also be treated to special "Door Buster" deals on new sheet sets, Eddie Bauer blankets and beach towels. The Palm Beach Goodwill will be stocked and merchandised the same as all of the other SWFL Goodwill stores including great deals on new goods that are perfect for holiday shopping.

Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida is a nonprofit organization committed to serving people with disabilities and disadvantages by providing life-changing opportunities toward independence. For more information about Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, visit www.goodwillswfl.org.
