SPOKANE, Wash. — Goodwill Industries of the Inland Northwest announced their five North Idaho locations will reopen on Friday.

Starting tomorrow, both the stores and attached donation drop-offs open up seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Extra safety precautions include plexiglass sneeze guards at all cash registers and a max capacity of 50 customers in the store at once.

“We were relieved to hear Governor Little’s plan last week to re-open the state of Idaho, including retail stores in the first phase,” said Clark Brekke, President and CEO in a release. “Our team has been hard at work preparing our stores with new safety equipment and signage to continue offering a safe and healthy environment for our employees and customers.”

Additionally, all donations will be subject to a 72 hour quarantine prior to being handled by any Goodwill employee.

Goodwill operates stores in Ponderay, Post Falls, Coeur d’Alene, Moscow, and Lewiston.
