Goodwill Industries is expanding its footprint in Lafayette Parish with a new store opening in Carencro. The new store is will be in the former Fred’s store on Veteran’s Drive. The nonprofit is offering deals in a two day Grand Opening Celebration. ” This is a great opportunity for us to pay back the community for your support throughout the years. Sales going to be much higher but the good thing is sales are our revenue stream for our missions we provide for the community in regards to those job services we provide. By having the larger store at a larger location it affords greater opportunities all across the board”, says President and CEO of Goodwill of Acadiana Deacon Ed Boustany. In addition to second hand clothes, Goodwill also offers job training to those with special needs.
