It's on to bigger and better things for the Goodwill Nellis Retail Store.
After 16 years at the same spot, the store is moving to a new location, 348 N. Nellis Blvd., near East Stewart Avenue.
The new locale will more than double the size of the sales floor and offer a convenient drive-up donation center.
The new location will open to shoppers on Friday at 9 a.m. following a brief ribbon cutting. The first 100 customers will receive a coupon good for $5 off purchases. You can even enter a raffle for prize giveaways on Friday and Saturday.
The store will feature a variety of men's and women's clothing, accessories, furniture, kitchenware, home décor and an assortment of other goods. Sales help fund Goodwill of southern Nevada's job placement and training programs, which put thousands of Nevadans to work.
"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 and 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."
