In an effort to modernize and revamp our stores, we say goodbye to two of our longest-serving retail locations: The Steinway Goodwill Store located at 32-36 Steinway Street in Astoria Queens (11103) and the Bellmore Goodwill Store located at 2736 Merrick Road (11710) in Long Island’s Nassau County.
The Queens’ Steinway store opened in 1985 and the Bellmore store opened in 1998 in Long Island.
Goodwill NY-NJ was founded in Brooklyn in 1915 by two clergymen to help persons with disabilities and disadvantages achieve self-sufficiency. Instead of receiving charity, people in need earned a living collecting, mending and selling donated clothes and household goods. The founders followed the example of Edgar J. Helms in Boston, giving birth locally to the philosophy of retail stores funding programs and services.
