A Goodwill store at 115 Danbury Road (Route 7 South) in New Milford is close to completion.

Exterior siding is in place over the steel building frame and construction crews are on site daily.

The 15,000-square-foot building will house a Goodwill retail store with a processing area.

It is 3,000 square feet larger than the present store in nearby Lore’s Plaza and is anticipated to recycle more than a million pounds of goods annually and will employ 35 to 40 people.

The new store is located next to the Verizon store and across Danbury Road from the DinerLuxe Restaurant.
