Goodwill of Southern Nevada will make history on Friday, May 3, 2013 when it officially opens the Pahrump Goodwill Store and Donation Center at 70 S. Highway 160, near Albertsons. The opening of the Pahrump location marks Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s eleventh store, and its first in Nye County.
A brief ribbon cutting will be held at 9 am on Friday, May 3, prior to store doors officially opening. The first 50 customers will receive a $5 coupon, and all shoppers who arrive at 9 am will enjoy an extra hour to shop, as regular opening time after the grand opening date will be 10am.
“The opening of this store and donation center marks a new era for our Goodwill,” said Goodwill of Southern Nevada President & CEO Steve Chartrand. “We are officially expanding not only our retail and donation operations, but also job training and placement services beyond the borders of Clark County to better serve all of Southern Nevada.”
By opening the new Pahrump Store and Donation Center, Goodwill of Southern Nevada is creating 14 new jobs, and – like all Goodwill Retail Stores – revenue from the sale of gently used items at the Goodwill Pahrump Store will be used to fund Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s job placement and training programs. Last year, Goodwill of Southern Nevada helped 1,800 individuals in Southern Nevada find employment and provided services to more than 8,000.
Goodwill of Southern Nevada is currently setting up services in Pahrump to offer job seekers and local employers free assistance via various Goodwill Career Connections programs. To kick this off, three workshops focusing on job seeker skills will be offered to Pahrump residents on Wednesday, May 22at the Bob Rudd Community Center.
More on the Pahrump Retail Store & Donation Center: The Pahrump Retail Store is 5,200-square feet with a 4,000-square foot sales floor, featuring a wide variety of gently used merchandise, like men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, shoes, accessories, housewares, electronics and furniture. Just like at all other Goodwill Retail Stores, customers never pay sales tax and have access to designer brands at bargain prices. The donation center will provide donors a quick and convenient option for dropping off donations of gently used goods.
