Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth will open a new 12,000-square-foot store, donation center and free career center at 1427 South Morgan Street (Hwy 144) in Granbury’s Port Brazos Center.
The store, which opens at 9 a.m. on Friday, May 10, is the 20th location in the greater Fort Worth area.
The public is invited to an opening ceremony at 9 a.m.
"Every retail store that Goodwill is able to open means more revenue to support our job training and placement programs for individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment," said David Cox, president and CEO.
Goodwill said it is expanding to reach as many residents in Weatherford, Cleburne, Denton, Fort Worth and surrounding areas as possible.
The career center inside the Granbury location will provide Hood County residents with free access to job-search experts, computers, Internet and telephones. The career center will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The Granbury location will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday – Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.
