Bargain-hunters will find locally donated items, as well as high-end merchandise brought in from other stores, at the Goodwill shop opening 10 a.m. June 27 at 7631 Girard Ave.

The Goodwill donation center on Girard Avenue will open as a retail shop on June 27.

“We are here for the long term,” CEO Mike Rowan said. “We have found a beautiful space in a beautiful place and intend to be a valued asset to residents and local merchants.”

Sharon Corrigan, director of communications for Goodwill Industries, told La Jolla Light, “Goodwill sorts all incoming donations for quality and that will be evident to visitors to the new La Jolla store — just ask loyal Goodwill shoppers about the treasures they’ve found at all of our locations in San Diego County.”
At the 1600-square-foot La Jolla store, Corrigan said, “You will find lots of clothing, shoes, accessories and decorative household items … these things have been donated by local residents, who now are able to drop them off closer to home, instead of driving to Pacific Beach or Point Loma.”
