Horizon Goodwill Industries announced that they will hold a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for their new store located in LaVale, Maryland on Friday, September 18.
The new store, located at 1236 National Highway, Suite #4, will feature a larger shopping space and a more accessible donation drop-off area. The store will also be the first to feature Horizon Goodwill’s new mission-related branding and graphics. The goal of the new branding and graphics is to reinforce Horizon Goodwill’s mission of “Removing Barriers, Creating Opportunities” for people in the community by putting 90 cents of every dollar spent in stores back into its workforce development and human services programs.
Chris Kackley, Horizon Goodwill’s Director of Retail Operations, shared his excitement for the new store. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to move into a new, expanded space and not only provide an enhanced shopping experience for our customers but also employment opportunities in the LaVale community,” Kackley said.
To ensure safe, physical distancing, customers will need to reserve shopping time slots at https://horizonlavalestore.eventbrite.com for the opening, which will begin at 10 a.m. on Friday, September 18. Shoppers will have a chance to explore newly-donated items, enter a free raffle for a 43” flat screen TV, and participate in drawings for Goodwill gift certificates.
The new store will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sundays.
The former LaVale store, located at 1313 National Highway, closed as of Tuesday, September 8. Those who wish to donate goods may bring their items to the new store located at 1236 National Highway as of today, September 11.
Similar to other Horizon Goodwill stores and donation centers, the new LaVale store gladly accepts the following items (in good/working condition): men’s, women’s, children’s and infants’ clothing and outerwear; accessories, such as shoes, belts, and handbags; linens and textiles (clean and stain-free); housewares; certain electronics (except televisions); arts and antiques; furniture; toys; books; and computers.
