Lufkin Goodwill store to extend shopping and donation hours in 2014

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Goodwill store in Lufkin will be extending their hours starting in 2014.

Director of Mission Services, Erica Cook says with the growing community Goodwill wants to ensure they grow with it.

Cook says by expanding shopping and donation hours will allow shoppers more opportunities to shop and allow Goodwill the opportunity to raise more funds to be able to provide more services for the community.

"There's a number of reasons we're actually increasing our store hours we're extending them so we can have increased opportunities for our shoppers to shop our stores so we're increasing simultaneously our donations center hours here in the Lufkin facility so people will be able to come and drop off donations until 8 pm and have someone who will actually be available to pick them up," said Cook.

Beginning January 6th Lufkin store will extend their hours from 9 am to 8 pm Monday through Saturday and will then be open on Sundays as well from noon to 6 pm.

The attended donation center in the Belk parking lot will also have extended hours from 10 am to 9 pm Monday through Saturday and Sunday from noon to 9 pm.
