AKRON, Ohio—May 26, 2011— After being closed since Friday, May 13th following a flash flood, Goodwill Industries of Akron will reopen the Goodwill Retail Store at 570 E. Waterloo Road tomorrow, Friday, May 27th at 9:00 a.m. just in time for the holiday weekend.    Although not all the renovation work has been completed, the reconstruction crews and the Goodwill staff have worked side-by-side to minimize the store’s downtime.

To welcome back its customers, the store is hosting a huge sale by offering 50% off on specially marked items.  This sale is valid at the Waterloo Road Store location only.

Please join us on Friday, May 27th for punch and cookies and to take advantage of the special sale.

Thank you for your continued support.
