New Goodwill® Opens Its Doors in Southwest Vegas
Thrift shop fans in Las Vegas were excited on Friday as Goodwill of Southern Nevada opened its newest bargain store - the 18th Goodwill shop and donation center conveniently located at Blue Diamond and Westwind in the growing southwest valley. The grand opening party started at 8:45AM with eager shoppers waiting for the doors to open at 9. After a ribbon-cutting ceremony, the first 150 customers got a free $5 Goodwill gift card and reusable bag.
"Establishing this new southwest valley location provides a valuable service for one of the region's fastest-growing communities," said Goodwill of Southern Nevada President and CEO Rick Neal in a statement. The store, open 9AM to 9PM Monday through Saturday and 9AM to 7PM on Sundays, offers tens of thousands of unique secondhand finds donated by the community and prepared for resale daily by Goodwill staff. Sales from the retail arm help fund career services, skills training, and employment programs that empower job seekers and veterans.
