5/15/15 — Goodwill Northern Michigan Opens Cheboygan Store
Local organization’s ninth store Opened May 22nd
Goodwill Northern Michigan is expanding. Goodwill opened its ninth donation and retail store in Cheboygan, Michigan. The store is located at 982 S Main St., Cheboygan, MI 49721. The retail space in Cheboygan is nearly 10,000 square feet and includes a convenient donation drive-through.
A grand opening was held May 22nd at 8:30 a.m., following months of renovation and remodeling work.
Goodwill is excited to expand its presence further north and provide Cheboygan residents with a positive shopping experience and an enhancement of Goodwill’s mission services in their community. As a jump-start to these enhanced services, Goodwill recently sought the local community’s help in nominating and selecting two Cheboygan families in need to award a vehicle through their Workers on Wheels program. The program has assisted hundreds of local families with vehicles since 1999. Donated cars are inspected, repaired, and awarded to a low-income, working family in need. Goodwill officials hope that additional vehicles are donated by the Cheboygan community in order to help the more than 30 individuals nominated to overcome their transportation barrier. All vehicles are awarded in the same county from which they were donated.
The opening of the Cheboygan Goodwill store brought 18 jobs. New employment opportunities will present as the store grows. In addition to job opportunities, later this year, the store will host retail job training. Trainees will learn every aspect of the retail industry alongside experienced staff, and then receive assistance securing and maintaining permanent employment in the Cheboygan region.
