AUSTIN, TX–Goodwill Central Texas announces the Grand Opening of a new gw Boutique at 10th & Lamar
Almost one year after the devastating Memorial Day floods of Shoal Creek, Goodwill Central Texas (GCT) is converting its 10th & Lamar location to a new gw Boutique.
Full of the same unique finds at great prices as our other stores, this boutique location will emphasize new merchandise, as well as gently used clothing, accessories, and home goods for the discerning shopper.
The Grand Opening celebration is scheduled for this Saturday, May 14th, at 9am.
Frank Holland, Vice President of Donated Goods and Retail, stated, “To make our Grand Opening even grander, we’ve hidden 100 FREE items throughout the store, plus the first fifty customers through the door will receive 10% off their entire purchase. We’ll also be handing out free gifts to the first 100 people through the door!”
Jerry Davis, President and CEO of GCT, added, “We’re excited to remain in this space and continue to be a vital chapter of the Lamar Boulevard story. We’re proud to take this opportunity to re-imagine the 10th Street location. We know these changes will better suit the shopping interests of this community.”
