Goodwill Manchester, NH store grand re-opening Saturday, May 14

MANCHESTER, NH — The grand re-opening of the Goodwill store on John E. Devine Drive kicks off with a ribbon cutting 9 a.m. Saturday, May 14. The renovated store has more merchandise, smoother checkout lanes, and a new Handpicked section where shoppers can quickly grab the best finds at great prices — things like designer jeans or a KitchenAid mixer. The renovation also included essential safety upgrades, including roof work.

Employees will stock the store with thousands of fresh finds before the re-opening. The first 50 customers will get a free $10 gift card.

“The Manchester store is the latest Goodwill store to add a Handpicked Boutique and one of only three in New Hampshire! Adding a boutique within the store has taken time and we’re grateful for all the customer support during this renovation,” said Julie Marcoux, Regional Sales Director, who oversees Manchester and other nearby stores. “The improvements provide a better work environment for our employees and we hope customers love the new feel.”

Goodwill Northern New England is a nonprofit whose revenues fund its mission to invest in people who need support to achieve their work and life goals. Goodwill runs AmeriCorps programs that strengthen New Hampshire’s communities including:

  • Granite State Service Corps: Members serve at-risk youth across New Hampshire. Member mentors regularly meet one-on-one with a caseload of 10 students to increase their resiliency, social and emotional skills, and self-sufficiency.
  • Public Health AmeriCorps: This new program will help build the public health workforce in New Hampshire.
  • Multilingual Leadership Corps: Our communities are home to pockets of refugees and immigrants, in cities like Manchester and Nashua. New American youth face significant barriers to success—often influenced by trauma and chaos in their past, learning a new language, and adapting to a new culture—and frequently enter the education system significantly behind their peers. Members strive to narrow this gap by increasing academic engagement among immigrant and refugee youth (grades 4–12) through mentoring, school skills support, social and emotional wellness, and community engagement.
  • Teach for Impact Corps: Goodwill NNE AmeriCorps partners with the Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) campus-based School of Education for the Teach for Impact Corps, an innovative program to help aspiring teachers realize their dream. The program doubles as a term of service with AmeriCorps while earning a Master’s in Secondary Education with STEM Education. Teach for Impact members engage directly with middle and high school students in the greater Manchester area for 16 months while taking classes on campus to become a certified New Hampshire teacher.
  • Goodwill VISTA Partnership:  This 8-10 week summer program matches members with partner agencies where they serve in both direct and indirect service capacities.
  • COVID Care Corps: Members serve in indirect service roles at local municipalities, community nonprofits, and health coalitions, where they help to develop programs, mobilize volunteers, and strengthen infrastructure both locally and statewide.
