It’s kinda weird how you can get attached to a store.
I can think back a few years to Zellers – do you remember them? Although they did a lot of things wrong, I still enjoyed shopping there – but, then they ended up closing all their stores.
I still miss them.
That being said, another store is now closed – although no one seems to be quite sure if it’s permanent. This is a store that I enjoyed looking around in ’cause you just never knew what you were going to find.
I’m talking about Goodwill. The news broke yesterday that they were closing a bunch of stores in Ontario – including Barrie, Orillia, and Newmarket. You can read the story HERE.
This afternoon, in the latest on the story, a Goodwill executive says that the stores will remain closed until further notice.
I feel bad for the employees – the ones that I’ve dealt with in Barrie were always pleasant to deal with – and now they are in limbo when it comes to their jobs.
Are you a Goodwill shopper – and what do you think led to this situation – any guesses?
