Goodwill to open new South Lake Union Store


Thrift store thrill seekers may want to mark their calendars now: Goodwill is planning to open a brand new store in South Lake Union at the end of July! Taking over the space of Honeychurch Antiques the store will be part of a new concept for Goodwill which will include a smaller format and a special selection of merchandise specifically aimed at urban city dwellers. "This is going to be a different kind of Goodwill store,” said Cindi Forslund, Vice President of Operations for Goodwill. The company specifically chose a space in South Lake Union for their new location because the area is known for it's long history of environmental awareness and support for recycling and re-use. The new store will be Goodwill's 22nd location in the Puget Sound region and be much smaller than existing stores in order to be a natural fit for the neighborhood. The store will be located at 411 Westlake Avenue. A grand opening celebration is planned for sometime in July. More details to follow....
