ROGERS, Ark. (KFTA) — Goodwill celebrated the grand opening of its new outlet store and resource center Thursday.
The new store is located at 1301 N. Dixieland Road and will create 30 new jobs for the area over the first year.
It will also provide job training in areas including forklift certification and OSHA 30 training.
“A third of our operations and our people live in Northwest Arkansas, so having this here allows us to ensure that we have the rest of that enterprise located in Northwest Arkansas,” said Brian Marsh, president/CEO of Goodwill Industries of Arkansas.
The new resource center will also give out free career service help, including resume preparation, interview consultations and job search help.
