COLORADO SPRINGS — With approval from government and healthcare officials, Goodwill announced its stores in Colorado will reopen in the southern and western territories beginning Friday.

Goodwill stores will open starting Friday with the exception of two locations: 2304 W. Colorado Ave. in Colorado Springs and 1230 Escalante Road in Durango. Those two stores will open on May 29 and May 15, respectively.

The temporary retail and attended donation center hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

These stores are reopening under the condition they follow proper safety guidelines, practicing safer-at-home guidelines.

“Goodwill has worked diligently to create a safe reopening plan that gets our valued employees back to work, keeping in mind the well-being of everyone at each location, especially those most vulnerable,” said Goodwill of Colorado President and CEO Karla Grazier in a release. “We are excited to re-open our doors and, in turn, open new doors to opportunity for Coloradans in need. The mission we deliver has never been more vital than it is today."

Goodwill stores will also be accepting donations of clothing, household items, and other gently-used goods. In partnership with the state's Emergency Management Office, they will also accept non-perishable food, masks, scrubs, fabrics, and cleaning supplies.
