Goodwill planning large new facility near Airway Heights

 


Goodwill Industries of the Inland Northwest recently purchased 6.2 acres of property by the corner of Flight Dr. & Deer Heights Rd., near the Village Center Cinemas in Airway Heights. Plans are now underway to build a new retail store and a salvage processing area on the parcel, the new facility will be roughly 60,000 SF .

"Our retail stores are the primary source of support for our Goodwill programs" explained Clark Brekke , President / CEO of Goodwill Industries of the Inland Northwest. Goodwill invests more than 85 cents of every dollar from the sale of goods donated into supporting it's programs. " We take the items people don't want anymore and use that revenue to fund programs that are helping people get training and employment, housing support and build financial stability" explained Brekke.

Goodwill will release an RFQ for design-build teams in the coming weeks. The budget for this project will be substantially determined by the design that is developed in partnership with the selected builder. Goodwill hopes to open the new facility in the Summer of 2022.
