ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Goodwill Industries of the Valleys has reopened multiple offices and stores in Virginia in conjunction with the state’s reopening plan.

“The decision to reopen our stores and offices was not taken lightly,” says Bruce Phipps, President and CEO of Goodwill Industries of the Valleys. “For our stores, we took a phased, four-week opening approach, beginning with seven stores on May 26th with all traditional Goodwill stores opening by June 15th. Stores opened with reduced hours, and we are confident we have the procedures in place to protect our employees and customers to return most stores to full hours on Monday, June 29th. The Goodwill Outlet in Salem will also reopen on the 29th. Reopening Goodwill stores is critical to Goodwill’s ability to be of service during this time of high unemployment. Our offices and in person services are also now beginning to reopen.”
