Goodwill Industries of Kentucky is delighted to have reopened the doors to its 66 retail stores and donation centers to all the communities it serves across the Commonwealth.
The nonprofit welcomed high traffic volumes, both in-store and via donations, on its first days of reopening, specifically at its Hurstbourne and St. Matthews locations in Louisville, which were highlighted in reports from WAVE 3 and WDRB, respectively.
In accordance with local and national guidelines, Goodwill has implemented and will continue to update health and safety measures to keep employees, customers and donors safe. The complete list of measures it is taking can be found here. Goodwill thanks all customers and donors for their patience as they go through this new normal.
Goodwill VP of External Affairs DeVone Holt was onsite at both locations to discuss the reopening of the nonprofit’s store and donation locations with local media. The segments can be viewed below:

The Somerset location was also geared up to get back to work, as pictured below. Goodwill is appreciative of all its retail employees for their adjustment during this uncertain time, too. The nonprofit was pleased to return more than 90 percent of its retail employees it furloughed in March.
