Goodwill's New Location in Mt. Juliet
Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee is expanding and opening up a
new store, Donation Express Center and Career Solutions center in Mt.
August, Goodwill broke ground on the new facility, located at 1985 New
Providence West Parkway, and construction is well underway.
The more than 28,000 square foot facility will feature a retail sales
floor of nearly 20,000 square feet. That’s approximately double the size
current Goodwill store in Mt. Juliet. A covered drive-thru for
donations will be located on the side of the store.
The new facility will also house Wilson County’s first Career Solutions
center. Goodwill Career Solutions offers free one-on-one job training
services to people who need help looking for, securing and keeping a
job. In 2012, Goodwill Career Solutions assisted more than 16,000 people
search for work.
Nearly all of the services offered through Career Solutions are free,
thanks to the generosity of Goodwill’s donors and shoppers.
Approximately 80 percent
of the funds used to deliver Career Solutions services are generated
through the sale of donated items.
The new location is expected to be finished in late spring or early summer, and will bring up to 40 new jobs to the area.
