Goodwill Taking Some Stores on the Road

WAYNE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Goodwill Industries is taking the term special delivery to a whole new level this holiday season.

The agency is hitting the road with a mobile store. A truck filled with holiday merchandise, toys and home goods is traveling to rural areas in our region, allowing people the opportunity to shop -- folks who just may not have one otherwise.

"We want to bring the merchandise to them," said mobile coordinator John Taylor. "Spreading the word has paid off. I'd say we were only here about 10 minutes, and we already made our first sale."

The merchandise being sold includes pre-owned items that have been donated, as well as merchandise that's been donated from large retailers.

"Typically, what we try to do is take the lowest price the item sold for in the store and cut that in half," said Beth Hendricks of Goodwill. "Eighty-five percent of all the money raised goes directly to fund programs to help train people for jobs."

The mobile Goodwill store will be at the KFC along U.S. 60 in Cannonsburg, Ky., from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday. It also will be at Central City along 14th Street West in Huntington on Saturday.
