The morning of Wednesday, March 8th was filled with anticipation as eager shoppers waited outside the newly re-designed Batesville Goodwill store for the Grand Re-Opening Celebration. The store had been closed on Monday, March 6th and Tuesday, March 7th for the installation of new racks and graphics as well as the final touches for the brand new re-design unveiling. The excitement kicked off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony which featured Batesville Mayor Mike Bettice, Community Development Director, Steven Harmeyer, Goodwill President and CEO Joe Byrum, the Batesville Chamber of Commerce as well as the Goodwill team as they formally opened the doors to dozens of excited shoppers.
