The Marquette store of Goodwill Industries of Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan rearranged their store layout the last two weeks in an attempt to make the store more customer friendly.
Many of the toppers for clothing racks were removed in favor of gondola-style shelving units for goods and wares. The options helped create more sales space for these items, but it also made the store more handicap accessible.
“Removing the toppers allows the customers to more easily shop,” said Courtney, a manager at the store. “Those customers who are in wheelchairs or struggle to see that high can shop easier.”
By this point, all of the improvements are in place and the store floor is back to full swing. We hope you enjoy your experience at Goodwill!

Last week was Goodwill Industries Week, a time where Goodwill regions across the US and Canada reach out to their communities about their mission. It’s been celebrated since 1951 for an organization that has been around for 115 years.
Locally, Goodwill Industries of Northern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan has been working on a project internally called “Why Goodwill”, where employees and clients were asked why they liked working for the company.
From May 7 – 13, Goodwill® is celebrating Goodwill Industries Week. For 115 years, Goodwill has worked in communities to help people with disabilities, disadvantages and anyone facing challenges to finding employment — including youth, seniors, veterans and military families, immigrants, and people with other specialized needs — gain skills and credentials, find employment, obtain job training, gain economic self-sufficiency, and receive necessary support services, such as financial education and transportation.
