Goodwill is building a new retail and drive-thru donation center on Rainbow Boulevard near Warm Springs Road.
This is only the second time in the charity's 40-year history of serving southern Nevada that it has built a new retail store from the ground up.
Usually, the nonprofit leases space for its stores and donation centers. The new store will feature a 12,000 foot sales floor, a donation sorting space and a drive-thru donation center.
“Our new Rainbow-Mardon store is truly groundbreaking in every sense of the word,” said Steve Chartrand, Goodwill of Southern Nevada President & CEO. “Typically we lease existing retail space. To be able to design and build this store to specifically suit our needs is an incredible accomplishment.”
The retail store helps fund Goodwill's job placement and training programs.
The new store is slated to reopen spring 2014.
