Burien Goodwill Holding “Customer Appreciation Day” Saturday
Burien’s Goodwill store will be celebrating its new look with a “Customer Appreciation Day” this Saturday, Dec. 12th from 8am on.
Visitors to the store, located at 1031 SW 128th Street “will enjoy an improved and more pleasant shopping experience thanks to extensive improvements to the store.”
In addition, the onsite Job Training and Education Center will be holding an Open House from 10am to 2pm. Individuals can speak with Instructors about course offerings, inquire about upcoming registration and tour the facilities.
As part of the dayâ€™s events, there will also be free drawings for Goodwill gift cards, and several special sales on certain items will be announced.
The store received a host of improvements designed, including a brand new floor of polished concrete, fresh paint and new signs. The books and furniture sections were expanded and the collectibles area received new cases.
â€œThe store really looks fantastic, and weâ€™re sure shoppers will agree,” said Store Manager Corinne Davis. “Weâ€™ve been a part of the Burien community for eight years now and want to thank our shoppers and material donors for their continuous support.â€
The store opened on Dec. 13, 2001; it is one of 18 retail stores operated by Seattle Goodwill in the central and northern Puget Sound region. Donations of reusable items from the community are sold in these stores; net proceeds support Goodwillâ€™s job training and education programs, which prepare people for work. Last year, Goodwill served more than 2,700 people at its nine job training centers. Services to the community are offered free of charge.
The redesign is part of a retrofit planned by Goodwill to update some of its older stores with elements incorporated into its new store designs.
