Goodwill to add Arlington location

🕐 1 min read

Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth Inc. has purchased an 11,000-square-foot retail space at 901 W. Lamar Blvd. in Arlington for what will be its 21st location in Tarrant County. The nonprofit plans to open the new retail store, donation station and job resource center at the location in early December following a reconfiguration of space and renovations of flooring, fixtures and repainting. “Every retail store that Goodwill opens means more revenue to support our job training and placement programs for individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment,” said David Cox, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth. “Ninety-three cents of every dollar of profit is dedicated to our mission and we are excited to add these services to the North Arlington community.” Details of the transaction were not disclosed. -Betty Dillard bdillard@bizpress.net
