shopping festivities

SAN ANTONIO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Walzem Road Revitalization area in Windcrest in northeast San
Antonio, is starting the New Year off with another new business, a new
Goodwill San Antonio store and donation station.

This newest Goodwill store is located at 5722 Walzem Road and opens to
shoppers following an 8:00 a.m. Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Ceremony,
to be attended by city and state dignitaries.

“Expanding to bring Goodwill services into the heart of the northeast
side of San Antonio has been part of our strategic plan, as we live and
work in the community through our Contract Services unit,” said Marla

Remodeled from the ground up, this location offers a superior Goodwill
shopping experience and a convenient donation station for individuals to
drop off their gently-used donations of clothing and household items.

Jan. 14 and goes throughout the weekend to Jan. 17, with free customer
giveaways, live radio station activities, drawings for prizes and great
shopping opportunities. Hours of operation for both the store and the
donation station will be 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m. – 7
p.m. Sunday.

“This new store provides a great resource for the community, including
adding 22 new retail and management jobs to the area. We are pleased to
be participating in the Walzem Road revitalization project, adding to
the economic development of this dynamic and growing part of our city,”
added Jackson.
