Goodwill Industries of East Texas confirmed Monday its purchase of the former Harry’s Building Materials building in Palestine for a future location.
The Harry’s Building Materials store in Palestine closed its doors at 3824 W. Oak St. in August 2012, with Harry’s stores still located in Jacksonville, Rusk, Troup and Nacogdoches.
“We just closed on the Harry's building. We will be doing some remodeling in the next couple of months and then will host a huge grand re-opening event,” said Marcia Floyd, Marketing Consultant for Goodwill Industries of East Texas.
The Goodwill store in Palestine is currently located at 101 W. Palestine Ave.
“We are very excited about our new location. In the meantime, the current location will be open as usual,” Floyd said.
More information about the plans for the future location will be given as the remodeling project nears completion, Floyd said.
