Goodwill Industries of Central Florida will open its new Winter Garden location Thursday, Aug. 13.
The store, located at 14190 W. Colonial Drive, will staff up to 45 employees and is currently hiring retail associates.
The 25,000-square-foot store is the nonprofit’s fourth new location to open in 2020.
The new Winter Garden store will incorporate the same safety precautions currently in place at Goodwill’s other locations: Plexiglas partitions at registers, one-way aisles and limited capacity. Customers and employees are required to wear masks. Dressing rooms will be closed, and as a result, the return policy will be extended to 14 days.
Ninety percent of revenue generated by Goodwill’s retail stores directly benefits the nonprofit’s job skills training and employment placement programs. For more than 60 years, Goodwill’s employment specialists have been assisting job seekers with updating resumes, practicing for interviews and applying for job openings in their community.
