Goodwill reopens stores and donation centers in Southeastern WI

GREENDALE, Wisc. (CBS 58) -- Goodwill announced they will reopen their stores and donation centers on May 15, 2020.

The stores and donation centers will be open Sunday through Saturday, with modified hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., to ensure regular sanitizing and store cleaning. 

Goodwill has several safety precautions based on current stay-at-home orders for each municipality. 

• The number of shoppers allowed in the store may be limited based on each municipality’s ordinances.

• All customers and employees will be required to wear face masks at all times while in the store. (Goodwill is not able to provide face masks for customers.)

• Social distancing guidelines will apply. Markings are located on the ground throughout the store to remind customers of the recommended six-feet distance, and every other cash register and fitting room will be used to help enforce this distancing.

• Plexiglass sneeze guards have been placed at registers. 

Goodwill has also implemented a no-contact, drive thru donation process. They ask donations be placed in bags or boxes, and to avoid loose items. The donations will be stored for at least 72 hours before employees handle and bring to the public. 

All Goodwill retail employees will be screened daily and have their temperature taken by a manager when they report to work. Goodwill will be providing all employees with masks and gloves to wear while at work.
