In April, The Beacon broke the news that Goodwill in Edmonds would close after a decade.
That might not happen.
Although not officially confirmed with Goodwill Seattle, a manager at the Edmonds location, in the QFC Westgate shopping center, said it's "99.9%" certain that store will remain after its 10-year lease expires Dec. 1.
Another Goodwill employee confirmed that Goodwill spent about $90,000 on repaving the parking lot.
The Beacon has an email and phone call out to Goodwill spokesperson Tammy McKenzie.
The 18,000-square-foot store was built in 1966. Goodwill signed a 10-year lease when it opened Dec. 1, 2011.
Goodwill Industries is a nonprofit organization that offers social services but is best known for its retail thrift stores.
