Edmonton, AB (May 14, 2020) – With safety precautions in place and lessons learned from our re-opening of thrift stores on May 16, Goodwill is excited to bring back more team members to re-launch 3 more thrift retail locations as together we continue to rally to overcome an unforeseen obstacle as we revive what was temporarily lost.
On Thursday May 21, 2020, Goodwill is taking steps to re-launch the largest Goodwill thrift retail store in Alberta with Westview, alongside Manning Crossing in Edmonton. While in Calgary, MacLeod Trail is set to open their doors to the general public. Measures to slowly re-open our thrift stores are done ensuring the health and well-being of our clients, donors, shoppers, volunteers and employees.
On Saturday May 23, 2020, a chinook is blowing through MacLeod Trail in Calgary as the store at 5707 Macleod Trail SW is opening their doors.
The Edmonton Impact Centre and Outlet store will have some temporary rules in place for safety:
Stores will operate from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m including the Edmonton Impact Centre.
Here is a complete list as to what thrift stores are OPEN:
Edmonton and area
Calgary and area
ALL STORES OPEN
This is a large step to bring back an organization that has helped so many through the power of work as 89% of funds raised from purchases at Goodwill go back into programs to help those with disabilities find and gain meaningful employment.
