The newest Goodwill store in St. Peters will open Thursday morning just as soon as the ribbon is cut.
The new store, located at 620 Mid Rivers Mall Drive just south of Walgreens, is set to become the 41st MERS/Goodwill store. The new Goodwill retail store and donation center will open for business following the 8:50 a.m. ribbon cutting ceremony.
While the ceremony is set for the early morning, Goodwill is offering visitors free pizza at noon, compliments of Papa Johns. Shoppers will have an opportunity to register each day during the Grand Opening weekend for a chance to win a $500 to $1,000 Visa gift card.
The store, located south of the existing Walgreens on Mid Rivers Mall Drive and at the corner of St. Peters Square and McGavok street, was approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission in November 2011.
The new Goodwill store will start the process of filling the a vacant lot accross St. Peters Square from Walgreens. Goodwill and Fifth Third are expected to share the area, with the bank being closer to Mid Rivers Mall Drive.
The Goodwill is opperated by MERS/Missouri Goodwill.
