HURON – Goodwill Industries of Erie, Huron, Ottawa and Sandusky counties unveiled its newest retail store during a ribbon cutting event held Oc. 5 in Huron at 310 Lake Erie Parkway.

The grand-opening ceremony attendees included: Huron city manager Andy White, Huron Chamber of Commerce president Amy Roldan, charitable donors, project contractors and vendors, along with board members and the board president Bill Rodwancy of AutoGate cutting the ceremonious ribbon. Most importantly in attendance, an eager crowd of thrifters ready to shop the generously donated items from community members.
