Goodwill Opens New Store, Nearly Doubling Shopping Space

Goodwill opened the doors of its new store and donation center in eastside of the Las Vegas valley Friday.

The store moved to Nellis Boulevard and Stewart Avenue after years of operating at Nellis and Charleston boulevards.

It opened with a brief ribbon cutting ceremony. The first 100 customers received $5 off coupon. Officials with Goodwill expect about 1,000 shoppers by the end of the day.

The new stores feature more than 13,000 square feet of shopping space, which is nearly double the space of the old store, along with a new Kids Korner section filled with toys, books, clothing and shoes just for kids.

The new location also has an improved drop-off area.

"Right now, we are actually featuring a drop-off donation center. Donors can come drive up and we help them with their donations," director of community affairs Walter Lescano said. "The more customers to shop at Goodwill, the more donors we get, the more people we can help get back to work."

The money earned from the new store and other Goodwill stores around southern Nevada funds jobs training and placement programs.

The store will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
