Goodwill of the Coastal Empire held a ground-breaking ceremony Thursday for their new 17,000-square-foot retail store and Job Connection Center at the corner of Godley Station Boulevard on Pooler Parkway.
The site will house a drive-thru donation center, retail store and a Job Connection Center.
Brian Felder & Associates, Thomas and Hutton Engineering and J.T. Turner Construction are custom developing the building to be the most energy efficient of all the Coastal Empire Goodwill facilities with construction expected to be finished before the end of the year.
“The mission of Goodwill Industries is a wonderful representation of community service, and we are honored that we are able to participate in something that will give back to so many deserving families within the Coastal Empire,” said Tripp Turner, chief operating officer for J.T. Turner Construction.
Goodwill staff, the Pooler Chamber of Commerce, local business owners, community and Pooler government leaders gathered for the event.
