A Tour of Goodwill’s Central Facility in Chillicothe

In the 50,000-square-foot Goodwill facility just north of Chillicothe is a large warehouse / work area.

Chillicothe — The new Goodwill building just north of Chillicothe was the site for the Chamber’s monthly “Business After Business” on June 19th, 2024. After reading my report on the open house, here is a photo essay on the facility.
