Goodwill, Please Don’t Leave, We Luv U: Plz Sign the Petition


GOODWILL – A LOVELY FAMILY STORE, LOCATED IN MARC’S PLAZA ON LORAIN AVENUE BETWEEN 136 & 137TH STREETS, ON THE WEST SIDE IN CLEVELAND, OHIO, IS PLANNING TO CLOSE ON JUlY 31, 2018.


WHY:


According to the employees – management told them that the store, in the present location, was not profitable.


Cleveland City Councilman Brian Kazy (Ward 16), however, was told that the management had decided to move the store from a rental location to one where the store was built and owned by Goodwill.


GOODWILL – WE LUV U:


No shortage of residents who love the store.


I have talked to over 60 who have signed the petition, in front of the store. since June 1 – and they – including their children simply adore the store – and walk away loaded with furniture, clothes, toys, books, computers, sporting goods, small appliances, crockery, art objects, garden tools, video & DVD movies, and many other objects.


My late wife and I have our house full of stuff from Goodwill.


All my clothes are from Goodwill.


I visit the store regularly – every trip is a joyful experience.


SIGN THE PETITION:


If you believe the store should not be closed – please sign the petition.


You can sign either at Vinny’s Beverage, located at 13531 Lorain Avenue (corner of West 136th Street), they have a sign in the window, and their hours are: 10:00 am – 10:00 pm every day and up to 11:00 pm on Friday’s. John Wynn is leading the effort at Vinny’s and so far over 120 residents have signed.


Or you can catch me in front of the store. At present, I don’t have a fixed schedule – but will try to be there – most evenings from 7:00 to 8:00 pm.


I also plan to walk the neighborhood and collect signatures.


If you can help with the petitions – please send me a personal message – and I can drop off the forms.


We will try to organize a rally to demonstrate community support to keep the store open.


The petitions will be submitted to the Goodwill Management.


Thank you!
