I love a nice goodwill store.... but $2 million dollar Goodwill store? Seems pricey for a non profit company (so to speak).

I buy books at the Goodwill on Hwy 49. I do not like the RH Goodwill on Albright Rd. that is a bad part of town.

I cannot understand the $2 million either especially for a charitable organization ... we have so many empty buildings and they keep building more.

I dont get why they cant just renovate older buildings. Back home, when we had Ames, Bradlees and Caldor all go out of business within a year or 2 of each other, we had TONS of empty shopping centers and stores. At the time, we didnt have Lowe's or Target's, so a ton of Lowe's and Target stores came in and re-did a lot of the empty buildings and opened new stores in them.

I see plenty of old walmart stores down here that are empty or got turned into something else less desirable.

Goodwill typically leases these building from developers.

I am, CT.

I went to this store on the grand opening day, and last weekend. Its nicer and newer, but I find less items. I feel like the old store had a lot more. I also feel like the customers are 100x more rude then the previous store.

I visited the new store this week. I didn't see $2 million dollars there ... perhaps the cost of the land was included in that figure. The store is not any bigger than their old location.

But it is new and clean and I didn't run into any rude people. Of course it was a weekday morning. They have a much better book selection then the old location had. It is in a better location.

My husband and I found a few nice things there, but mostly saw a bunch of junk.
Try going on a Wednesday evening...I ran into lots of snobby old bittys who couldn't say "Excuse me" and packs of annoying high school and college kids. There was also a couple making out by the kitchen/home shelves. LOL It's just like anywhere else I guess!

Odd as i never had any issues at the old store, and I still think the old store had more stuff.
