Goodwill Northern Michigan Opens Charlevoix Store
Local organization’s eighth store opens on January 16th
Goodwill Northern Michigan is expanding. Goodwill opened its eighth donation and retail store in beautiful Charlevoix, Michigan on January 16th. The store is located just north of the Charlevoix Bridge at 402 Petoskey Avenue in the former IGA grocery store. The store will be headed by Charlevoix native, Pati Brannon, who says, “Charlevoix is my hometown, and Goodwill is going to enhance the Charlevoix Community through good works. I am excited and proud to be a part of the organization that will help my hometown shine, and I look forward to being a part of the wonderful Charlevoix business community once more.”
The grand opening was well-attended by Goodwill organization members, local business leaders, happy shoppers, and the Charlevoix Area Chamber of Commerce. The opening follows months of renovation and remodeling work. Goodwill’s mission services impact, fueled by the donation and sale of goods in their stores, has already been felt by Charlevoix/Emmet County residents.
In 2014, Goodwill provided:
- Housing at the Goodwill Inn for more than 12 Char/Em residents
- More than $10,000 in store credit vouchers for Char/Em families in need
- 6 vehicles to Char/Em low-income working families through Workers on Wheels
- Employs nearly 30 Char/Em neighbors at Goodwill stores
