These store openings are in addition to seven stores which already reopened on May 12: North Canton, Jackson Township, New Philadelphia, Strongsville, North Olmsted, Mayfield Heights and Painesville.

At all of these opened Goodwill stores, there will be a designated hour of shopping for seniors and high-risk customers, 9 – 10 am Tuesdays.

Goodwill has taken steps to ensure the safety of employees, customers and donors by implementing the State of Ohio’s business reopening plan along with recommendations from the CDC and other health organizations.

These steps in retail stores include adding shields at all cash registers, implementing 6-foot social distancing throughout the store, one-way aisles, frequent cleaning and disinfecting of hard surfaces and carts and all employees wearing masks.  For the safety of our employees and other customers, Goodwill requires customers to wear masks or face coverings while shopping in the  stores.

The color tag sales will be temporarily suspended until mid-June. Good Points rewards will be honored, though. 

At each of these opened locations, Goodwill is operating ‘no touch’ donation centers. The ‘no touch’ donation centers will have designated bins outside of the facility for donors to use.

Donors are asked to not unload their donations while another donor is unloading their items. Instead, donors are requested to wait in their car until others are finished and have pulled away. Goodwill staff will not be assisting with the unloading of materials from vehicles and cannot assist with larger pieces.

There is no home pickup service available for donations. Receipts for donations given at the ‘no touch’ donation centers can be secured by logging onto goodwillgoodskills.org.

All donations will be stored for a minimum of 72 hours before being sorted and placed on the sales floor.
