Fresh from our Pequannock Goodwill opening, we’ve got another new store to announce: On Friday, September 28, Goodwill Industries of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey will open its first Broome County store with a ribbon-cutting ceremony with local officials at 9:50 a.m.

Our first store in Broome County opens September 28th, bringing new jobs, retail training opportunities, goodwill and good deals into the Binghamton community. Hope to see you there!

The Goodwill Binghamton store and donation center is located at Price Chopper Plaza, 12 Glenwood Avenue, Binghamton, NY 13905. Hours are 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Sunday. Drawings for 20 gift cards will take place on opening days September 28-29.

The Binghamton store will provide retail training and jobs for up to 15 people, some of them persons with disabilities while offering local residents the opportunity to contribute to the mission of Goodwill by donating unwanted belongings.

Prior to the opening, we’ll welcome donations at the store Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5p.m. After September 28th, we’ll welcome donations during open hours, as at all our retail locations. Because Goodwill is a not-for-profit organization, contributed items in good condition are tax-deductible, and receipts are provided upon request.

Measuring 20,000 square feet in total, the store will offer a variety of new and gently used clothing, shoes, accessories, linens, electronics, books, records, CDs, DVDs, and other household items in its 10,000 square-foot retail space.

Thanks to the support of our customers and donors, Goodwill NYNJ serves 100,000 individuals annually and places 4 individuals in competitive jobs every hour of every business day. Goodwill’s mission is to empower individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment to gain independence through the power of work.
