A Goodwill for Ballantyne!

Tomorrow, we are opening the doors to our newest Goodwill Center in Ballantyne! The new retail store and donation center, located at 16025 Lancaster Highway, is the 21st store in our region. We couldn’t be more excited to become part of the Ballantyne community.

We would love to have you join us for tomorrow’s festivities. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 8:30 a.m., followed by music, giveaways and other festivities from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Doors will open to the public at 9:00 a.m. and shoppers will have a chance every hour to win a $250 US Airways gift card.

Goodwill mascot Smiling G will join Charlotte Checkers’ mascot “Chubby” to greet our shoppers, pose for fan photos and give away tickets to future Checkers games.

The Ballantyne Goodwill Center will employ 20-25 people and generate approximately $500,000 in wages and sales taxes paid per year. Normal store hours will be:

Monday through Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Friday and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Sunday from 12:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.

Proceeds from the sale of donated items at Goodwill’s retail stores fund the organization’s job training and employment programs that assist thousands of our neighbors every year. Ninety cents of every dollar spent at Goodwill helps with funding these programs.

Thank you for shopping at Goodwill! Are you planning to visit us at our Ballantyne location?
