“The boutique in downtown Akron had a great run thanks to the gracious support of its customers, landlord, the city of Akron and Downtown Akron Partnership,” said Cheryl L. Watkins, vice president of operations and logistics for Goodwill Industries of Akron. “The agency is optimistic about growing the boutique concept further in the Copley area. This concept offers another type of shopping experience that is very different than our typical retail stores and whether shopping or donating to Goodwill, it all supports our mission of helping individuals prepare for, find and retain employment.”
