Goodwill of Western & Northern Connecticut Expands its Presence in Danbury with New Location Fall 2022

Goodwill of Western and Northern Connecticut (GWNC) today announced that it is expanding its footprint in Danbury with a new, 12,000 square foot retail store and donation center in the Berkshire Shopping Center at 67 Newtown Road this fall. The current Danbury store and donation center at 2 Beaver Brook Road is expected to close on July 31, 2022.

“Danbury, and its neighboring towns, continue to show tremendous support for Goodwill’s mission, both as generous donors and loyal customers,” Ken Bennett, VP of Retail and Facilities, Goodwill of Western and Northern Connecticut, said. “While we will miss seeing our regulars for the remainder of the summer, we are excited to grow our footprint in Danbury and welcome them into our new location this fall.”

Since opening its doors in 1992, the donor and shopper count at Goodwill’s Danbury location have both grown steadily. The new location – and larger facility – will allow the nonprofit to better meet the needs of the community and generate greater funds for the mission.

“For an organization dedicated to connecting individuals to employment, expanding one of our retail stores is a win-win,” Rocco Tricarico, President & CEO, Goodwill of Western and Northern Connecticut, said. “Nearly doubling the size of our Danbury store will create more than 25 new positions here at Goodwill. At the same time, the proceeds generated by the store will also help fund our mission - providing career services and empowering job seekers throughout the State.”

Goodwill is looking to hire Retail Associates, Shift Supervisors, and Assistant Managers for its newly expanded Danbury location. To learn more and apply, visit: www.gwct.org.
