Portland Goodwill Store Wrecked By Tornado To Re-Open
A Michigan Goodwill store is set to reopen about a year after it was hit by a tornado. The Goodwill of Greater Grand Rapids in Portland will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the reopening on June 25. The store was struck by an EF-1 tornado June 22, 2015 destroying most of the roof and much of the foundation.
The new 10,000-square-foot store has an additional 4,000 square-feet that will house a career center.
An estimated $3.3 million in damage was caused when 132 buildings in the city, including several churches, were destroyed or damaged by the tornado. Fortunately, no injuries were reported in Portland. You check out more about the store from WLNS here.
