Grand opening for a new Goodwill in Victoria

A new Goodwill store and donation station has opened in Victoria on Thursday.

About 100 people were standing outside of the store waiting for the grand opening and ribbon cutting.

“There is an opportunity for us to open a second location which is here on Houston Hwy that will be supported by folks in Victoria,” said Marjorie Bourdeaux, Goodwill Vice President of Marketing.

Goodwill has brought about a hundred jobs to Victoria.

Thursday Goodwill started the Goodwill Date Night Challenge. To enter the challenge, you must purchase at least part of your date night outfit from a goodwill store. Then post the picture on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag goodwill-date-night.

The contest ends May 1st at midnight. The winner will get dinner for two and free movie tickets.
