Goodwill Claymont Store Grand Re-Opening


Goodwill’s Claymont Store Slated to Reopen

Wilmington, DE, January 22, 2009—Following nearly three months of construction, the renovation and expansion project at Goodwill’s Claymont retail store and donation center is nearing completion. Goodwill plans to celebrate the grand re-opening on January 29, 2009 with a 10 a.m. ribbon cutting ceremony. The Claymont remodeling project is part of Goodwill’s branding program which includes installation of automatic doors, new lighting, floor, fixtures and signage, and in the Claymont store’s case, an 800 square-foot expansion of the sales floor.

“The Claymont store looks terrific,” says Karen Kee, vice president of Goodwill of Delaware’s retail operations. “The Claymont community has always been supportive of Goodwill through donations and loyal shoppers. It’s heartwarming to be able to give them this beautiful facility to patronize.”

Kee said the remodeling of the Claymont store follows the design template created for the new store in Bridgeville, Sussex County which opened in August, 2007. She said the same design template will eventually be applied to the remodeling of existing Goodwill stores throughout the Delaware and Delaware County, Pennsylvania region.

“Bright and spacious – the renovated stores are being designed with the customer in mind,” says Colleen Morrone, Goodwill’s chief mission officer. “Our goal is that everyone who walks through the doors will have an overwhelmingly positive experience.”

The donation center for the Claymont store will also reopen upon completion of the renovations. The Goodwill store in Claymont is located at 2701 Philadelphia Pike.

For 87 years, Goodwill of Delaware and Delaware County’s mission has been to improve the quality of life for individuals with barriers to employment through vocational services and work opportunities and has been supported by proceeds from retail sales and donations. Last year alone, Goodwill of Delaware and Delaware County provided nearly 6,900 services to individuals throughout the region.
