The new Goodwill store on Emory Valley Road opened on Friday, September 18.
The new store replaces the former Oak Ridge Goodwill, which was located on South Illinois Avenue.
There was a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new store on Friday, September 18.
“The new location…will provide a brighter shopping space with a significantly larger center for job training efforts,” the company said.
Executives said the new store, located at 697 Emory Valley Road, next to the new Hank’s Market, will continue to receive and sell donations of gently used clothing and household goods. Proceeds from the sale of goods in this and other Goodwill stores will fund job training programs and employment opportunities for people with barriers to employment in and around Oak Ridge, a press release said.
