Nellis Goodwill Retail Store and Donation Center Moves to New & Larger Location
Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting on February 22, 2013
Las Vegas, NV – February 20, 2013 – After sixteen years in the same location, Goodwill of Southern Nevada is moving its popular Goodwill Nellis Retail Store to a brand new location at 348 N. Nellis Blvd. (near E. Stewart Ave.) that will more than double the sales floor of the original store and offer a convenient Drive-up Donation Center.
The move means shoppers can find even more bargains and, in turn, help more people in our community find work.
The new Goodwill Nellis Retail Store and Donation Center at 348 N. Nellis Blvd. will open to shoppers at 9am on Friday, February 22, 2013, following a brief ribbon cutting. The first 100 customers will receive a $5 off coupon to shop. Customers can enter a raffle for free prize giveaways on Friday and Saturday.
With 13,122 square feet of selling space, the new store will feature a wide variety of men’s and women’s clothing, accessories, furniture, kitchenware, home decor and other goods. The new store will also debut a new concept for Goodwill of Southern Nevada called “Kids Korner”, a specially designated space featuring children’s toys, books, clothing, shoes and accessories.
The original Goodwill Nellis Retail Store was located at 31 N. Nellis, near Charleston. This move to a newer, larger location is part of Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s plan to open new or relocate existing stores to offer a better shopping experience and a more convenient opportunity for donating gently used merchandise.
“The relocation of the Nellis store is especially meaningful to me because the Nellis store was the first store I helped open in Southern Nevada,” said Steve Chartrand, President & CEO of Goodwill of Southern Nevada. “That was back in 1997. Since then, our Goodwill has grown significantly and because of the strength of our retail stores we have been able to help thousands of people find employment.”
By expanding operations at the new Nellis Retail Store & Donation Center, Goodwill of Southern Nevada is creating eight new jobs in our community, and – like all Goodwill Retail Stores & Donation Centers – revenue from the sale of gently used items at the larger new store will be used to fund Goodwill of Southern Nevada’s job placement and training programs. Last year, Goodwill of Southern Nevada helped a record 1,800 people find employment through its Career Connections program.
In June of 2012, Goodwill of Southern Nevada opened its first brand-new retail store and drive-thru donation center in six years on the corner of South Fort Apache and West Flamingo. Four months later, in October of 2012, Goodwill relocated its Sahara store and drive-thru donation center to a larger location on Sahara near Decatur.
Goodwill currently has nine full-scale retail stores in Southern Nevada and one “Goodwill Select” store located inside the Albertsons at Maryland Parkway & Silverado Ranch. For locations, please visit www.sngoodwill.org.
