The Goodwill store in Brick, under construction for months, opened Friday and begins its regular hours this week, the organization said in a statement.

Goodwill is now open in the Brick Boulevard building that formerly housed 6th Avenue Electronics and, before that, the General Stores. The store, operated by Goodwill Industries of Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia, announced the 18,000 square foot retail location last year. It is stocked with “high-quality gently-used clothing, accessories, household items, toys, furniture and more,” according to a statement.

The site will also have a donation center in the rear of the store where local residents can donate gently-used items that they no longer need in return for a tax deduction.

The store opened to a line of customers waiting to enter on Friday and remained open through the weekend, selling items ranging from a Kate Spade bag for $6.99 to a pair of North Face Boots, new in box, for $49.99, the organization said.

The Brick store is the 23rd to open in the Philadelphia market region and the second in Ocean County. Another store is open in Bayville. Goodwill describes itself as a nonprofit, community-based organization, whose mission is to provide job training and career services that help local residents with disabilities and disadvantages get to work. The large scale collection and resale of donated goods “fund these high caliber programs while contributing to the region’s recycling efforts.”

Located at 451 Brick Boulevard, the store is now open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.

    Since when are we in the Philadelphia market region? Is this due to all the Eagles fans? We need to get rid of those people.

    Why anyone would donate to these blood suckers, I have no idea. You give them something for free and then, they turn around and sell it for a profit. I would rather toss it in the trash, than give it to them. They have taken Barnum and Bailey’s saying to heart. “There’s a sucker born every minute”

      They have overhead like retail rent and pay the clerk’s. I feel your perception of blood suckers is harsh. Try ReStore- Habitat for Humanity as an alternative but they only accept limited items- no clothes

    If you don’t like donating to Goodwill try the ReStore which is a retail outlet for Habitat for Humanity nationwide. The point of these recycling and thrift stores is to cover their costs and provide jobs. Sad that eastcoastresident has such a negative view.i guess that comes with living in Jersey. I left in 1994 and haven’t regretted it. Iust visited for the beach and good food.
