Grand Opening for New Goodwill Store in Frankfort Set for Thursday Morning

Goodwill of Central & Southern Indiana is celebrating the grand opening of its newest retail store in Frankfort tomorrow at 9 a.m. Located at 1948 E. Walnut Street, the store will replace the previous location and offer more space to shoppers for bargain-hunting and a larger donation center.

Store hours are Monday to Saturday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Goodwill accepts donations during regular store hours.

The store located at 1911 E Wabash Street closed earlier this week and will be replaced by the new location.

Goodwill employs over 4,100 individuals, many of whom have barriers to employment, such as lack of a high school education, disability, or a criminal background.

“We are excited to open this new location to our shoppers and donors in the Frankfort community,” said Kent A. Kramer, president and CEO of Goodwill of Central & Southern Indiana. “Goodwill remains committed to serving thousands of Hoosiers through our mission and education services. Our retail stores allow us to provide those services across central and southern Indiana.”

In addition to its employment opportunities, Goodwill operates New Beginnings, a program designed to meet the needs of individuals reentering Hoosier communities after incarceration. Goodwill also offers a maternal-child health program, Nurse-Family Partnership, in communities throughout the central and southern Indiana region.

“The revenue made from our stores, including the new Frankfort store, goes right back into the communities we serve,” said Kramer. “When individuals shop or donate to Goodwill, they are changing lives in our state through education, health and employment.”

  1. I like goodwill but I will not donate clothes to them because they will not help anyone that has had a disaster but Salvation Army will!

    • Goodwill is not a charity. It’s mission is to educate and employ. Goodwill pays for education for those wanting to get their diploma, those that need special guidance and other needs. Research the programs of Goodwill….you’ll change your mind.
