The new Circleville Goodwill store on Morris Road in front of the former Carnival Foods will have its grand opening on Tuesday, July 18.
The new 9,000 square-foot store features a covered donation drive thru and will open at 9 a.m. on July 18 after a brief ribbon cutting with the Pickaway County Chamber of Commerce. Goodwill’s Pickaway Services Center which provides day services to individuals with disabilities moved into a new 3,000 square-foot area adjacent to the store on July 1.
“We’re excited to finally open in the new location after some construction delays. In addition to the usual thrift items, the store will have several new goods for sale,” said Goodwill CEO Marvin Jones. “We think the community will appreciate the more modern shopping experience and especially the covered donation drive thru. Our new center also will provide needed additional space to serve more individuals with disabilities in the community.”
WKKJ’s Christina Wolford will broadcast live from the grand opening between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. During that time, the center also will be selling hotdogs, chips, and pop to raise money for its activities fund, and there will be a spinning wheel to win door prizes donated from various businesses in the community.
Hours at the new store will remain the same from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday thru Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Donations are accepted during business hours only. The current store on U.S. 23 is set to close on Monday, July 17.
