SPOKANE, WA- Goodwill Industries of the Inland Northwest has leased space at the Spokane Business & Industrial Park, and has moved its warehouse operations there.

The nonprofit had occupied 34,000 square feet of space in a warehouse at 919 E. Trent. The new location gives the organization a larger, more efficient space, says spokeswoman Diane Galloway.

At its warehouse, Goodwill employees sort and store items donated to the non-profit organization at numerous locations here and do some basic testing of donated electronics, Galloway says.

Goodwill Industries of the Inland Northwest employees about 540 people and operates 12 retail stores. It also provides pre-employment, job placement and other services to more than 2,700 people annually. Sales from the retail stores pay for about 80 percent of the organization’s programming, Galloway says.
