Construction company sign goes up on Sunset Boulevard
Hood Construction has put a sign on the site where a new Goodwill facility is to be built in West Columbia. The store will be at the corner of Klapman Road and Sunset Boulevard. The plans call for a 35,000-square-feet
Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina has not announced a groundbreaking date, but Crystal Hardesty, director of marketing and public relations for Goodwill Industries, said the store’s opening is expected to be in the summer of 2016. West Columbia’s Goodwill store on Meeting Street will remain open.
The new Goodwill will include a retail portion along with a Goodwill Job Connection department and a unique Clearance Center, where thrift items will be sold in bulk.
Goodwill bought the property at the site about 10 months ago. A house on the property was demolished and an open-air fruit stand that once operated at the site was removed.
A newly constructed Goodwill store was opened at 4708 Sunset Blvd. in May. That building is next to the now-closed Monkey Joe’s children’s play facility.
