GREENSBORO, N.C. — A new Goodwill store and career center is set to open in Oak Ridge next week.

The retail store, located at 2250 Hwy 158, will open at 9 a.m. Thursday, March 15. It will be the ninth Goodwill store to open in Guilford County.

Goodwill is also opening a Career Center adjacent to the store. It will be the second of its kind in central North Carolina and will serve the surrounding region, including residents of Rockingham County. The center is modeled after the first located on North Elm Street in Greensboro.

A grand opening celebration featuring free refreshments and prize giveaways will continue at the store through the following Saturday, when a live radio program with WMAG 99.5 will take place. For more information, visit TriadGoodwill.org.

Goodwill stores offer gently-used clothing and housewares at discounted prices.  The items are generally donated.
