Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth Inc. has signed a lease for its 21st store in the Fort Worth area.

The 8,872-square-foot retail site, at 3124 Townsend and West Berry streets, is expected to open in late April.

“Every retail store that Goodwill is able to open means more revenue to support our job training and placement programs for individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment,” said David Cox, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth in a news release.

“We are excited to be a part of the Paschal High School and TCU communities in Fort Worth’s Southside,” Cox said 

The store opening comes as Goodwill expands to reach residents in Weatherford, Cleburne, Denton, Fort Worth and surrounding areas. More information is available at www.goodwillfortworth.org.
