More space means more jobs for a retailer in Cambridge.
The Cambridge Goodwill is opening a new location in the Kmart Shopping Plaza on State Route 209. This new location gives them 8,000 sqare feet to work with, which is four times larger than their location across from the Tim Horton’s on State Route 209.
"With this large store it’s going to provide about 11 more jobs, also another management position and we’re offering repurchased goods and new goods as well as donated items," said Chief Operating Officer Cindy Caldwell.
Donations will not be accepted at their new location.
"Due to our lease we can’t except the donations here, but our old location is open and the donations will go there," said Caldwell. "We will also have a furniture store there and kind of a warehouse deal, so the donations will be processed there and brought here."
The grand opening is Wednesday at 10 a.m. Caldwell said when they opened their first location the line was around the block and she expects that to happen again.
