Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida announced it will be closing its Retail and Donation Center located in South Fort Myers, on South Cleveland Avenue, effective at 7 p.m., May 26. Goodwill’s lease is expiring and will not be renewed.
Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida successfully operates 28 other non-profit Retail and Donation Centers throughout the five-county-area to generate revenue for much needed programs and services for people with disabilities and disadvantages.
“Goodwill has had a presence in Southwest Florida for more than 51years,” said Rick Evanchyk, CEO of Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida. “We would like to thank our loyal donors and shoppers who have helped support our mission from this location, as well as our dedicated staff in South Fort Myers.”
Associates affected by the closing will receive assistance with job placement and will be encouraged to apply for open positions among the other Goodwill locations. Customers are encouraged to shop at Goodwill’s many other convenient locations, including: Plantation Road off Daniels Parkway; Island Park Road and the McGregor Book Store, and McGregor Blvd.
In preparation for the store closing, the store will have two special sale days May 25 and May 26. All donated goods will be 50 percent off. Sale prices are available at the South Fort Myers location only.
