Goodwill of Southern Nevada will open its largest store in the nonprofit’s 40 year history in Las Vegas as one of the retail anchors at the newly renovated Boulevard Mall, located at 3528 S. Maryland Parkway in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The 28,000 square-foot store will be located in the former site of Dillard’s, and features a 17,000 square-foot sales floor that will be stocked with men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, purses, jewelry, kitchen goods, accessories, furniture, art and much more.
The new Goodwill store is slated to open late summer 2015 and will create fifty full-time jobs in Southern Nevada. A donation center is already in place and operating at the entrance off Maryland Parkway.
“This is a perfect partnership,” said Alyn Reeves, Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s Chief Operating Officer. “Our Goodwill store will bring jobs, value, and a family friendly shopping experience to one of the most iconic shopping malls in Las Vegas. This is an incredible opportunity for our shoppers, as well as the people we serve.”
Opening new stores is vital to the nonprofit, as sales of donated items fund Goodwill’s mission of helping members of the community find employment, no matter circumstance or disability.
In 2014, Goodwill of Southern Nevada helped a record 2,361 people in Southern Nevada get jobs, and provided training, job search and other supportive services to more than 12,800 individuals, at no cost.
The opening of this new store at The Boulevard Mall is part of an unprecedented expansion for the nonprofit. This year, Goodwill of Southern Nevada is slated to open five new retail stores and donation centers.
A new Goodwill Store at American Pacific and Stephanie opened in March (relocated from a previous, smaller location). Three other brand new Goodwill stores at Lake Mead Blvd & Civic Center, Silverado & Bermuda, and Durango & Deer Springs are currently under construction, with opening dates to be announced soon. Groundbreakings for two of these stores occurred October 2014.
In all, the expansions will create around 150 new jobs in Southern Nevada.
