Goodwill Gives Gaffney a Fresh Start and Thrift Experience With Grand Opening of New Store on April 10, 2024

March 14, 2024

Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina (GIUMSC) is excited to announce the relocation of their Gaffney Retail Store (1307 W. Floyd Baker Blvd.) to a new, more accessible location at 1320 W. Floyd Baker Blvd. in Gaffney, SC. Scheduled to open April 10th, the new Goodwill stands only 807 feet from the previous location. This new location will offer an improved shopping experience for customers while helping the community through their expanded Job Connection space.

The relocation of the store represents a significant milestone for GIUMSC, as it marks a strategic step forward in its commitment to serving the Gaffney community with even greater accessibility and convenience. With the expanded space, customers can expect a wider selection of high-quality merchandise, including clothing, furniture, electronics, housewares, and more. The new layout will offer a seamless and enjoyable shopping experience for visitors of all ages.
The new 14,221 sq. ft. location will also house a Job Connection, Goodwill’s public program that connects thousands of South Carolinians each year with free career services.  GIUMSC currently operates more than 20 Job Connection centers throughout the Upstate and Midlands, where job seekers can find employment leads and referrals, resume support, free coaching, skills training and more.

“We are thrilled to relocate our Gaffney store to this new, more prominent location. Goodwill deeply values the support and spirit of the Gaffney community, and we’re excited to continue serving and empowering individuals here in this new space,” said Pat Michaels, GIUMSC President and CEO. “This move underscores our dedication to serving the community by providing an improved shopping experience while also supporting our goal of helping individuals overcome barriers to employment.”
The new store and donation center hours of operation will remain Monday – Saturday 9am – 8pm and Sunday 10am – 7pm. Job Connection hours will be Monday – Friday 9am – 12pm & 1pm – 4:30pm.
The current Goodwill – Gaffney Retail Location at 1307 W. Floyd Baker Blvd. will close permanently on Saturday, March 16. All items in the store will be 50% OFF from Wednesday, March 13 thru the 16th. Goodwill will still be taking donations at the current location after March 16 until they are ready to process them at the new location.
