“It’s a new look for Goodwill in a great location in a busy shopping area,” said Kent Fugere, Retail Sales Manager at Goodwill Industries Vocational Enterprises, Inc. “With the colors and layout of the store, it’s going to be a great shopping experience for our customers. People are already very interested—we’ve had to turn them away while we’ve been getting the store ready to open. We’re excited to bring the new look of Goodwill to the northland.”
The Kenwood Shopping Center is now home to Goodwill’s second Duluth location, bringing the non-profit’s stores up to 14 in number across the northland, and a new place for Duluthians to donate their gently used clothes and other items.
The new store sits on the corner of the Kenwood Shopping Center in between Erbert & Gerbert’s and Duluth Teacher’s Credit Union, with a donation drop-off located at the rear of the building. Thrifty shoppers and donors now have an alternative to the Garfield Ave. location, and can stop at Goodwill during a trip to the shopping center.
The new 4,000-square-foot store opened for business June 12 after weeks of renovations.
Goodwill is excited about the increased presence in the Duluth area and the opportunity to continue serving the people of Duluth and its surrounding communities.
Kenwood Goodwill store hours for shoppers are from 9am-7:30pm Monday-Friday, and 9am-6pm on Saturday. Goodwill accepts donations of gently used clothing and household goods during regular business hours at the store location. Contact the Kenwood store at 218 522-4461 for more information.
