North Charleston, SC – Palmetto Goodwill is reopening its Walterboro store Thursday, July 9 after being closed since March due to COVID-19. The store located at 112 Robertson Boulevard will celebrate it’s reopening to the Walterboro community with stocked shelves, thanks to generous donors who cleaned out closets during quarantine, as well as new goods.
Shoppers will notice new safety measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect, preserve, and promote the general health and welfare of the city. Staff will wear face masks and per Walterboro’s recently passed emergency ordinance, customers must also wear masks in the store. Other measures include increased cleanings, directional arrows to guide customers through the store and staging areas at the cash registers to allow for distancing.
Goodwill stores fund vital community services by providing a direct financial source to support career opportunity centers, including Palmetto Goodwill’s virtual center.
