From a Goodwill press release

Goodwill of North Georgia will soon open the doors to its 46th store location. The new  Stone Mountain store, located at 1450 East Park Place Blvd., includes a drive-up donation center and will open to customers at 9 a.m. on Thursday, January 30. 

Including the new location, Goodwill operates nine stores in Gwinnett County alone. The nonprofit also has a number of stand-alone  donation centers in the area. “Not only are we growing our Gwinnett County footprint, but with this new location, we were able to bring nearly 40 new jobs to the community,” says Director of Public Relations Elaine Armstrong.

“Our mission is to put people to work. We do this through a variety of job training programs and employment services. We use the sale of donated goods to fund those activities,” explains Armstrong. Last year, Goodwill helped more than 11,000 individuals  find employment at businesses across North Georgia. Customers will find clothing, shoes, books and jewelry on the 12,500 square foot sales floor.

During the first four days of business (Jan. 30 – Feb. 2) customers can enter hourly drawings for Goodwill gift certificates. “Regular thrift shoppers, treasure hunters and those looking for great bargains; we expect to serve hundreds of customers when we open for business Thursday,” Armstrong adds.
