After a partial reopening following the coronavirus-related shutdowns, Goodwill Industries of North Central Wisconsin (NCW) is now reopening all 27 retail stores and training centers across its 35-county region.
The organization made the announcement Monday in a news release. Goodwill NCW said it plans to open all locations starting May 26 with strict safety procedures in place and reduced hours.
All 27 retail stores and training centers will be open to both shoppers and donors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, as well as the four Fox Valley Donation Express locations at 575 Swan Road in De Pere; 2465 Lineville Road in Green Bay; 211 E. Ann Street in Kaukauna; and 1033 W. Northland Avenue in Appleton.
Goodwill NCW says its safety measures include holding all donations for at least 72 hours and taking proper sanitation measures before putting items on the store floor.
The organization also plans on having team members wear masks and will use plexiglass at all registers.
According to Goodwill's news release, Goodwill NCW’s noncontact donation drop-offs feature a drive-thru system that follows social-distancing guidelines. Donors are asked to place their items directly into the designated bins or boxes instead of delivering person-to-person. Signage at donation drop-offs walks donors through the process. Online receipts are available at goodwillncw.org/donate/receipt.
