    Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce
    Welcomes Goodwill Industries - Suncoast, Inc.
    to the Community
    Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce (GRCC) members celebrated the Grand Opening of the newest Goodwill Industries - Suncoast, Inc. store located on Big Bend Road.  Members of GRCC were on hand to congratulate and welcome the Goodwill superstore and their staff to the community.  During the Ribbon Cutting celebration, members enjoyed searching through the store to find the one item that best represented themselves or their company – flamingos, hats, purses, wall signs, garden stakes and steering wheel covers were among just a few of the chosen items. Members were photographed with their items and then invited to shop ‘til they dropped!
    Goodwill Industries - Suncoast, Inc. officially opened this new store on April 6th with 27,700 square-feet. It features a convenient drive-through donation lane for easy drop off. Goodwill Industries-Suncoast, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  The sale of donated and new goods at Goodwill stores enables the agency to offer a variety of employment and training services, promote self-sufficiency, and contribute to community conservation through recycling.  A Job Connection Center will fully open in July to offer free employment services to anyone in need of assistance, however, employment workshops are already being offered at the store.
    During the event, Kerin Clarkin, Honorary Deputy Mayor of Riverview, delivered a proclamation and reminded everyone that at Goodwill Industries - Suncoast, Inc. they help people achieve their full potential through the dignity and power of work, and the proclamation named April 17, 2019 to be Goodwill Industries - Suncoast, Inc. Day.
    The Goodwill Superstore is located at 10739 Big Bend Rd, just east of U.S. 301 and near our good friends at the Tractor Supply Store. To learn more about the Goodwill Industries - Suncoast, Inc. visit their website at www.goodwill-suncoast.org.
