Goodwill Industries of Kansas to open new store at Cherry Creek

UPDATED — Goodwill Industries of Kansas is preparing to open its 16th store, this time at the Cherry Creek shopping center on the southwest corner of Harry and Rock.

This will make the fifth Goodwill store in Wichita when it opens in late March.

“It’ll just be like all of our other stores, offering good bargains to people,” says president Emily Compton.

Proceeds go to help pay for programs and services for people with disabilities and those who face employment barriers.

Don Piros of Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the lease for the 13,800-square-foot space.

Compton says there’s one chief reason why the new store will go at Harry and Rock.

“It’s the seventh busiest intersection in Wichita.”
