The morning of Thursday, May 25th marked the official Grand Re-Opening of Ohio Valley Goodwill’s Loveland retail store and has been eagerly anticipated by local shoppers for months. An informal opening of the store took place in late April but the May 25th event marked the formal Grand Opening with all final interior design details finished and an official ribbon-cutting ceremony with local dignitaries. Located at 330 Loveland-Madeira Road, the Loveland store’s parking lot was filled with excited shoppers waiting for the big event. Q102 and Media Personality, Natalie were on hand as well to help promote the Grand Re-Opening celebration event. The first 250 shoppers received a free shopping bag with goodies as well as refreshments and all shoppers were eligible to win a gift certificate during the day’s festivities.
During the official Ribbon-Cutting ceremony, Loveland City Manager, Dave Kennedy joined with Loveland Magazine Editor, David Miller, alongside Goodwill President and CEO, Mark Hiemstra, Board Chair, Bill Courtney, Board Member Joe Walter as well as other local dignitaries to assist with the official event. The Loveland Manager shared some welcoming remarks along with Goodwill President and CEO, Mark Hiemstra. ” Goodwill is delighted to present this fully renovated and re-designed Loveland store for the pleasure of our shoppers and donors. We think that our patrons will enjoy the bright, modern interior, new display areas, engaging graphics and fresh fashions featured at this store location. The Loveland store’s re-design will serve as the template that Goodwill will be following in its re-designs and updating for more of its store locations moving forward. We are so glad that so many of you chose to join us today for this exciting event, “ added Hiemstra. Watch the video here https://www.facebook.com/cincigoodwill/videos/2154292334769307
