Katyhomefinder- New Goodwill Resale Store now Opened in Katy Area

By

Goodwill Industries opened a new 14,000 square-foot Goodwill Select Store during December 2010. The store is located at the intersection of Fry Road and Saums which is in a shopping center formerly housed Jo-Ann Crafts and Fabrics. This is the second Goodwill Select store in the area as the first store opened about 3 years ago at the corner of Mason Kingsland.

Good will Select stores carry designer-label clothing and merchandise for men, women and children and all items are sold at a discount. When anyone shops at a Goodwill Store the funds are going not only towards payroll plus towards training programs. Goodwill's basic corporate mission is to "change lives through the power of work". Many of the folks employed by these Goodwill stores are those that have been down in their luck or have not had very fortunate lives. If you visit a Goodwill store you will see a gleam in the eyes of most of their employees that you will not see in most other retail facilities. Goodwill is a charity that does not have bloated executive payrolls or perks.

The new store is open from 9:00 AM Monday through Saturday and from noon until 6 PM on Sunday. Donation drop off is open from 9 AM until 7 PM Monday through Saturday and from 9 AM till 6 PM on Sunday.

Goodwill has two additional drop-off facilities in the Katy area. One site is located at 3815 N. fry Road Suite 400 and the second is located at 2020 S. Fry Road Suite D.

I personally save good clothing and household goods in my garage that my family no longer needs just so I can donate those items to a Goodwill facility. So the answer is yes I talk the talk and walk the walk.

Bob,

           That is great information to know. I need to clean my closet out as my husband states that I cannot buy any new clothes until I make room in the closet needless to say I will be Spring Cleaning early this year and I will donate it to the new Goodwill Store in  Katy. I also like Katy Christian Ministries on Mason!

Goodwill Stores are great. When I was a kid I used to get used computer equipment from them. My mom would fix it for me and I’d be good to go. Then as I got older I started giving my un-needed used stuff to Goodwill.

Hi Bob-  I love walking through Goodwill to see what they have.   When I see some really good deals I purchase them and stock up for the Christmas Holidays.  My daughter and I like to give to the ones that need help during holiday and this is a great way too.
